#6 - Fear & Loathing in the New Jerusalem - Never Again
Dec 19 16
Modern Zionism began in the late 19th century with idealistic calls for spiritual renewal; by 1939, it had transformed into a desperate play for bare survival. Young revolutionaries do combat with Zionist elder statesmen for the soul of the movement. Hitler’s German Reich and Stalin’s Soviet Union do battle for Europe while everything between them is ground into the mud. Victims become victimizers, and the wider world gets an introduction to the dispute that has been confounding the British Empire for 20 years. Our episode begins with desperate Jews in Nazi Europe, it ends with the realization of the Zionist dream, for the first time in 2,000 years, a sovereign state of Israel.

The Eastern Border
Thought provoking and really deep
Darryl's show is one of the deepest most thought provoking shows out there - he's been compared to Dan Carlin, and for a great reason. It's an excellent show about a difficult subject matter, done in a way that really changes the way you think about the middle east. Highly recommended!

Exceptional and captivating long form podcast, it is among the best out there. My only concern is that the format changes in the future, as it is already near perfection.
