Ep 09: Half Chai and the Fight for 15

(To avoid confusion,please pronounce the title with a gutteral “kh”)
On this episode: we condemn JK Rowling, the Papacy and David’s cold. We discuss the dangerous appropriation of #blacklivesmatter by Zionist activists, and contemplate the Jewish media’s treatment of a JDL attack on a Buzzfeed reporter.

David gives his shkoyakh to an ex-NDP candidate who recently visited Auschwitz, and Sam applauds the German government for their strong stance against holocaust denialism (by the Prime Minister of Israel).

Finally, we’re joined by Manuel Salamanca Cardona of the Immigrant Workers Center (IWC) to talk about the Fight For 15 campaign to raise the minimum wage for workers regardless of status.
