Mark Regev Interview
A great interview not because of Krishnan’s skills but because Channel 4 News let it happen.
Krishnan only got a bit uptight when Trump was sighted as being helpful in creating peace in the Middle East.
I am not Jewish but do see a lot anti-Israel in the mainstream news channels.
Great new addition
Always enjoy C4s angle on the news. Krishnan let the discussion flow well and it was very insightful. The Ambassador came across well and gave enough away with his silence (intentional) to see nuance in his argument.
Look forward to many more.
I listen to podcasts all the time and will always look for new interesting stuff to listen to. I watch C4 news and saw the trailer for This podcast and have listened to each episode a couple of times. An interesting range of guests, and was surprised how interesting The Hitchens one was as I despise the man. I put it down to the interviewer. Great find.
