I listened to this episode shortly after it was released with so much interest and excitement, as I've been following the news about the new NLI building and hoping to visit on my next trip to Israel. And then, over this weekend, I discovered that the more disquieting political developments that are alluded to in this episode are, in fact, affecting the Library directly, too. (For those who may not know what I'm referencing, check the Times of Israel: https://www.timesofisrael.com/top-authors-poets-petition-against-effort-to-curb-national-library-independence/ and https://www.timesofisrael.com/hebrew-u-threatens-to-pull-content-if-national-library-politicized-report/.) Perhaps this is worth a follow-up on in a future episode?
