Listened to the debut podcast and loved it! The host does a great job keeping the conversation flowing and I loved learning about the potential for life on other planets. Excited to see what the next pod is about!
Benyamin Cohen = storyteller extraordinaire
Ben is such a great writer and it’s exciting to see his storytelling platform expand to podcasting. I’m so excited to hear the stories of Israelis who are doing good in this world!
Professional Interviewer. High-class Guests!
I just listened to my first episode of the "Our Friend from Israel" podcast, episode # 21 with Inna Braverman. WOW! What a fantastic conversation that was! It never ceases to amaze my how many extraordinary people are indeed living in this tiny country! Once the podcast was over, I sent the link to my family to encourage them to tune in as well. Her story is phenomenal, from her near death as an infant to creating an innovation start-up company using ocean wave energy. Benyamin did a great job with researching Inna before the interview began. The conversation was enjoyable and educational. I will be looking for more such episodes in the future.
