This week's topic: A reporter's perspective on the Israel-Gaza war

Club Picks:

This article that was written by Adam himself. He talks about it in the podcast because it was published 24 hours after the 7 October attack.

He also discusses CNN reporter Clarissa Ward, one of the only reporters who has been able to enter Gaza without an escort. Here is a piece she produced after doing so.

Adam recommends this podcast by Yonit Levi of Israel’s Channel 12 News and Jonathan Freedland of The Guardian - 2 prominent journalists - called Unholy: Two Jews on The News.

Finally, Adam pointed us in the direction of 3 books called ‘Jerusalem’ as background to a city he and so many others love:

  • Simon Montefiore’s biography Jerusalem*
  • Dominique Lapierre and Larry Collin’s O! Jerusalem*, which covers the events surrounding the creation of the state
  • And Ottolengi’s famous Jerusalem cookbook*
