Podcasts about the Israel-Gaza Conflict

Learn about the background and history to the conflict

10:30 AM GMT+1 on October 22, 2023

    There are a number of podcasts looking at the conflict between Israel and Gaza. From the BBC, there’s The Conflict: Israel-Gaza, fronted by Chief International Correspondent Lyse Doucet and Understand: Israel and the Palestinians by BBC Europe Editor Katya Adler. 

    Dan Snow’s History Hit also did a special episode this week entitled Israel, Gaza and the West Bank: A History. Snow introduces three experts who talk about the background that got us to where we are today, starting with a feature by historian Simon Sebag-Montefiore on the importance of Jerusalem to both Israelis and Palestinians.

    Ex-Twitter head of curation Joanna Geary was on Media Confidential with Alan Rusbridger and Lionel Barber this week, talking about how disinformation used to be clamped down on the social network, but has now thrived since Elon Musk did away with the teams working on these roles. The News Agents also did a deep dive looking into the misinformation that has been spread on the internet over the last two weeks, whilst on The Media Podcast, Iain Dale talks about the stresses of covering the war on LBC.

    Pop Culture with Chanté Joseph looks at the role of celebrities speaking out on social media. And in Times Radio Today, a new podcast that is exclusive only to subscribers of The Times, there’s an interview with former foreign secretary Lord Hague on what the conversations may be within the British government.
