Fun Joel on the Radio

Radio Kol America is an Internet radio station aimed mainly at Israeli expats, and those interested in Israel.

Internet radio, that is!

A very brief post to let you know that my old friend from Los Angeles, Liami Lawrence, hosts a popular internet radio show on Radio Kol America (kol is Hebrew for “voice”). In a few hours, he will be interviewing me on his show, discussing my aliya process, and my new life here as a budding tourguide to be. If you’d like to hear the interview, and/or want to call in to talk to me live, tune in at the link above.

The show runs from 9-11 PM Los Angeles time, on Wednesday April 20th. That translates to 7-9 AM Israel time on Thursday the 21st. My segment will probably begin around 10 PM / 8 AM.

I look forward to sharing my thoughts, and to hopefully chatting with some of you on the air!

UPDATE: Here is a link to the interview. I come on at about 1:09:45
