“There’s something about populism that always comes back to the Jews,” Ben Smith told Benyamin Cohen and Laura E. Adkins on the first episode of the Forward’s brand new weekly news podcast, “That Jewish News Show.”
“That Jewish News Show” is a smart and thoughtful look at the week in Jewish news from the journalists at the Forward, which has been driving the American Jewish conversation since its founding in 1897. In each episode, hosts Laura E. Adkins, the opinion editor, and Benyamin Cohen, the news director, bring you beyond the headlines and interview the newsmakers behind those stories.
Smith, co-founder of Semafor and formerly of Buzzfeed News and The New York Times, joined the Forward to chat about his new book, the state of Jewish journalism, and what lessons he learned from his long-ago internship at the Forward.
