On this episode: we condemn JK Rowling, the Papacy, and David’s cold. We also discuss the dangerous appropriation of #blacklivesmatter by Zionist activists, and contemplate the Jewish media’s treatment of a Jewish Defence League attack on a Buzzfeed reporter. Finally, David gives his shkoyakh to an ex-NDP candidate who recently visited Auschwitz, and Sam applauds the German government for their strong stance against holocaust denialism (by the Prime Minister of Israel).

To avoid confusion,please pronounce the title with a gutteral “kh.”
