AP x Nonzero - Israel, Palestine, and US Foreign Policy w/ Robert Wright


Welcome to the first installment of a collaboration we’re trying between AP and Nonzero Newsletter! Basically, we love the work of Bob and the team so much that we are going to periodically put out crossover episodes between the two projects. Paid subscribers get a discounted membership to Nonzero— just scroll below the paywall near the bottom of the description, where you’ll also find the video for the Overtime segment.
