What’s Happening in Israel and Why

The October 7th attack by Hamas and Israel's subsequent response have left the world in shock. To better understand the context behind this moment, Adam is joined by Nathan Thrall, a Jerusalem-based journalist, former Director of the Arab-Israeli Project at the International Crisis Group, and one of the leading experts on the conflict in Gaza.

Nathan and Adam discuss the history of this conflict, and the dehumanizing impact of war on the everyday people caught up in it.
