PODCAST: The Daily Briefing — Aftershocks from the siege on US democracy

A panel of ToI reporters and editors struggles with the storming of the US Capitol and what it means for the future of the free world

Welcome to the second episode of The Times of Israel’s Daily Briefing: Your audio update on what’s happening in Israel, the Middle East, and the Jewish World.

Today’s panel includes Times of Israel founding editor David Horovitz and senior analyst Haviv Rettig Gur, along with host Amanda Borschel-Dan.

In the aftermath of the horrifying January 6 events in Washington, DC, our ToI panel analyzes the storming of the Capitol and what it could mean for the future role of America as the leader of the free world. In a country where democracy is the de facto state religion, its sacred temple was breached and we’re already feeling the reverberations throughout the world.

Each Sunday through Thursday, a panel of Times of Israel reporters and editors will give a fresh perspective on the day’s news in a brief, fast-paced conversation. Special thanks to producer Raoul Wootliff.

Discussed stories include:

Watching in horror, worrying for our US ally, with troubling concerns of our own

Among those who stormed the Capitol: Holocaust-denying neo-Nazis

Democrats gain Senate control after Ossoff and Warnock both win in Georgia
