[/icon-box]Ira Glass himself called Israel Story Podcast the “This American Life” of Israel — and in truth, it’s indeed an award-winning podcast that brings to life the many untold stories of Israeli life. It’s not only good, but it’s award-winning stories include the lives of Israel’s minorities.
Take first story in the episode below — they interview the unlikely and high-cost friendship between elder stateswomen Raymonda Tawil, a Palestinian aristocrat, and Ruth Dayan (yes, wife of Moshe Dayan and something of Israel’s Rose Kennedy). Says Ruth in this eposide, “I divorced Moshe because of this Palestinian woman.” And Raymonda eventually had to leave the West Bank, partly because of her friendship with Ruth. “We fight,” says Raymonda, “sometimes we don’t speak for months.” It’s fascinating, it’s almost unbelievable, it’s bittersweet, and it’s inspiring.
