PODCAST: The Daily Briefing – Striking Syria, Israel prepares Iran for Biden

A quick 15-minute podcast with ToI editors and reporters to catch you up on what’s important today

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.

Today’s panel comprises Times of Israel military correspondent Judah Ari Gross and editor David Horovitz, along with host Amanda Borschel-Dan.

We open today’s show by looking at the overnight rocket fire from Gaza to Israel, the reaction from the IDF and the possibility of a surprise flare-up in the south.

With Israel and Iran each stepping up threats and provocations, we ask the panel what’s behind the two countries’ latest moves and what the building tension says about their views on and hopes for the Biden administration.

And finally, we discuss Phil Spector’s complicated legacy of musical brilliance and murder.

Discussed articles include:
