Welcome to The Times of Israel’s Daily Briefing, your 15-minute audio update on what’s happening in Israel, the Middle East, and the Jewish world, from Sunday through Thursday.
Tech Israel editor Ricky Ben-David and diplomatic correspondent Lazar Berman join host Jessica Steinberg.
Ben-David opens today’s podcast reviewing her interviews with privacy experts who sharply criticized Israeli police following revelations about their use of Israeli company NSO’s cyberweapons to spy on civilians.
Berman looks at situations unfolding in two regions with connections to Israel; the UAE’s diplomatic handling of Tehran following a deadly oilfield strike, and the escalating tensions between Russia and Ukraine.
Ben-David closes today’s podcast with a brief look at Israeli startup Plantish, which says it has produced a 3D-printed, plant-based salmon fillet.
She also discusses the first foray of Trigo, an Israeli company offering checkout-free shopping at a grocery store in New Jersey, aiming to compete with retail giant Amazon.
