Show Notes

Documentarian and educator Elizabeth Coffman joins Bart and Chris to review Andrew Goldberg?s powerful examination of the resurgent scourge of antisemitism across the globe, the just released Viral: Antisemitism in Four Mutations. Bart then interviews Allen and Cynthia Mondell, directors of the 2008 documentary The Monster Among Us, which profiled antisemitism in Europe 10 years ago. Plus ?a change ? It may be a dispiriting topic, but we have a spirited conversation about the films and the issue, which should be of concern to everyone, everywhere.

And so concludes our 8thseason. We?ll be back with a few bonus episodes over the next 6 to 8 weeks before we launch the next season. Until then, you can go back through our now significant catalog if you need your fix of the fog. As always, enjoy, and thanks for listening!
