In this episode Lev speaks with Greg Shupak about the recent events in Gaza. They discuss the goals of the demonstrators and the Israeli government, the economics of Gaza, and what it means to manufacture consent. Professor Shupak teaches Media Studies at the University of Guelph in Toronto. He writes regularly for a variety of outlets including In These TimesJacobinLiterary Review of CanadaMiddle East Eye, and TeleSUR.  He is also the author of a new book, The Wrong Story:  Palestine, Israel, and the Media, which you can order from the website of OR Books.


A note: From time to time we will be covering current events in addition to our regular podcasts on the economy. This podcast is primarily designed for educators and we believe that current events are an important part of any class. We hope that by interviewing experts we might gain insight about political and economic events that are happening in the world right now. We also hope that these interviews can provide some clarity when preparing lessons. Please let us know how we are doing! Thank you.
