Description

According to his middle school yearbook, Matti Friedman wanted to be a journalist when he grew up. The only problem? He didn’t really know what that meant. 


But Matti knew that writing was the best way to make sense of a very complicated world. As his career progressed, Matti allowed his life experiences to influence the formation of his work. From his early days in Israel living on a kibbutz, to his first gig as a reporter at The Jerusalem Post, he wrote stories that tackled complex moments in history and his own life. To date, the Canadian-Israeli writer has published four lauded books, and his headlines have appeared in top outlets like The New York Times and The Atlantic. 


Listen in as Gil and Matti travel back in time, wading through memories that take Matti from Canada to various parts of the Middle East, which Matti believes are the key to seeing Israel with new eyes.
