Israel Encapsulated

In this very special, collectors’ edition of the Promised Podcast, they rebroadcast a conversation with one of their favorite writers, the brilliant and enchanting magical-realist writer Etgar Keret, soon after the publication of his 2015 memoir, The Seven Good Years. The interview was done by the wonderful Ilene Prusher, long-time fill-in Promised Podcast panelist, and one-time TLV1 program director. They also speculate about what six items they would each send up in a Voyager-Spacecraft sort of time capsule, to teach eager aliens everything they need to know about Earth’s only Jewish State.
