In this week’s podcast, host Josh Nathan-Kazis is joined by Forward Washington correspondent Nathan Guttman and Editor Jane Eisner to discuss Mitt Romney’s apparent dismissal of the two-state solution in a speech in May. Then, the group turns to Eisner’s recent editorial, in which she compares political party platforms from 2012 and 1980. They may give an insight into why Jews likely continue to vote for Democrats. Finally, Josh and Forward culture editor Naomi Zeveloff discuss a new series from Judy Brown in which she traces her journey in leaving the ultra-Orthodox community.
