The Exploding Head Podcast Goes into its Second Season

Although my articles didn’t stop, my podcast did take a needed break⁣⁣.
Now, I’m back for the second season of The Exploded Head. In its intro episode, I review what I’ve talked about already and give you some ideas of what I’ll be covering in the near future.

The Dangers of Dehumanisation

Dehumanisation is a prerequisite for some of the darkest things we’ve witnessed in our history. Slavery, genocides, torture, mass killings – just to name a few, and it’s one heavy list already. That’s why, we have to learn to notice it and to call it out.

What Do We Talk About When We Talk About Palestine? Part 7: Impunity

Gaza might not be bombed anymore yet so much remains. The blockade, the occupation with all of its mechanism, apartheid, and so many questions.

One of these questions sounds simple but it so important to ask:

Who can hold Israel accountable?

What Do We Talk About When We Talk About Palestine? Part 6: Gaza and The Fake Security vs. Equality Dichotomy

Israeli bombings of Gaza have a context that we need to address and, when needed, deconstruct. Building on my previous episodes, this is exactly what I do in this one.

We Have to Talk, Write, Post, and March for Gaza

Instead of appeasing those who are promoting the mainstream narrative, we have to say it as it: Gaza is under a brutal attack. The last time Israel invaded it, it killed 500 children. Let’s not wait to see such numbers again.

What Do We Talk About When We Talk About Palestine? Part 5: Colonialism

What is happening in Sheikh Jarrah?And what has been happening in East Jerusalem in general? We can’t analyse this situation without assessing its context. In this case, that context is colonialism.

What Do We Talk About When We Talk About Palestine? Part 4: International Organisations

Human Rights Watch has just released its report on the Israeli policies in the Occupied Territories and in Israel itself. The verdict: these policies make up a system of apartheid.
In my episode, I talk about this report and what broader questions we should ask when it comes to how international organisations assess any Israeli policies.
