This month, we recorded our podcast live at our Main Event at the Kimmel Center!  We start with a recap of the evening’s internet sensation, known affectionately as “snow camel” with our boss Steve Rosenberg and then we go live to the Main Event floor to hear from our guests about their favorite memories of Israel.

The evening was our final celebration of Israel’s 70th anniversary, and it was our immense honor to sit down with our special guest Avi Issacharoff, co-creator and producer of the Netflix hit Fauda.  Live from his green room backstage, we talk about his background covering wars and conflict for Israel Public Radio, how his experience getting to know members of militant groups helped develop the characters in Fauda, and his thoughts on the future of the Israeli-Palestinian peace process.
