Well, this turned out weird.
This episode is the combination of a virtual American travel tour of the West Bank, an actual travel tour of the West Bank, a bizarre experimental art splat and a few variations on that splat.
Thanks so much to the Palestinians and Americans (and crucially, a Dane in Hebron) who provided their voices to this meta-meta-meta mutilayered many-prism’d episode. They are: Wasem, Sohaib, Maya, Lily, Issa, Muzi, Raed, Baha, Bshara, Kevin, Laura, Joel, Megan, Dan, Dave, Andrew, Sammy, Corey, Eli and Mira.
Music for this episode was provided by Muzi and Raed in Jerusalem and a few inexplicable seconds by Nino Rota. This episode quotes Confederate general Robert E. Lee, “whose American sense of America may or may not be coloring the ethicality of this West Bank political travel-tour.”
