About Us

Israel Story is one of the most popular national radio shows in Israel, and the first documentary storytelling podcast of its kind in the country. The show is often dubbed the ‘This American Life’ of Israel, even by Mr. Ira Glass himself. Hosted by Mishy Harman, Israel Story shines a light on the big and little dramas that comprise Israeli life, amplifying voices that are rarely heard on the mainstream media. Israel Story recently branched out into English, co-producing its first English season with Tablet Magazine. The season got a lot of really positive attention– it was featured in the New York Times, an episode was selected as one the top 10 best podcast episodes of 2014, and stories from the first season have been heard on NPR stations across the US, including on shows like ‘Snap Judgment’ and ‘To the Best of Our Knowledge.’
