Episode Notes

We discuss the Israeli emergency in its latest iteration in the horrific attacks by Hamas into Israel in October 2023 and the simmering conflict bands that are emerging globally in which this is another explosion in the global conflict rift. For those who thought the podcast died, its death has been greatly exaggerated. My move to FL from AZ is now complete and many apologies for the disturbance of my fortnightly podcast episode rhythm by being late two weeks with a new episode. The podcast studio took some time to resurrect but here we are.

Speaking of podcasts, if you want to know why the Middle East looks like it does today, please listen to Darryl Cooper’s podcast series mentioned below. MartyrMade is one of the best history education experiences you will have access to right now.

I said Pat Keller in the the podcast, it is Bob Keller; apologies Bob, senior moment.
