Ep 19: The End of Leftist Jewish Publishing in Canada

On this episode, we try to crowdsource a new tagline for the podcast, kicking off the #treyftagline twitter campaign – send us your ideas! We’re then joined by Hani Ghazi, organizer with Adalah NY, for a new instalment of BDS Watch Watch about NY Governor Cuomo’s recent executive order to criminalize BDS. Sam introduces our first listener-submitted Shkoyach and David tries to understand a confrontation between far-right activists and Israeli tourists in the Ukraine. For the interview we’re joined by Carl Rosenberg, editor of Outlook Magazine, to talk about closing the doors on Canada’s last remaining leftist Jewish publication. We talk about Outlook’s final issue and the legacy he hopes they leave behind.
