“There’s a feeling in the air that the country is on the line.”

Today we speak with Ya’akov Katz, military affairs and political expert, author, and former editor of The Jerusalem Post. He is brilliant and distills the last day and a half of indescribable horror in Israel for us: morale, terror, intelligence and military failures and the incomprehensible savagery of Hamas terrorists. This first pod is without a paywall. Going forward the podcast – which will be very frequent as this complex and ongoing situation develops – will be accessible to paying subscribers only. We’re not sleeping and like to think we are doing worthwhile work. It takes resources. Please support us.

Huge thanks to my awesome editor and general tech wiz – Amir White, graphics, marketing and so many other things guru – Ioan Szabo, and the amazing Blake Flayton – social media guy and then some. For those of you in Israel – I hope you and your loved ones are safe. Horrific beyond belief.

Sorry for the not awesome sound quality today – it’s all my fault. Boomer Luddite. But Amir will whip me into shape in no time.
