How to Use Mixtape Part Four

Podcasts bring stories to life, exposing us to different narratives and opinions, enriching our knowledge, and providing an opportunity for inquiry.

There are many ways to explore the rich content that Mixtape offers. Each episode can be discussed in one session or broken into several lessons, depending on time and audience. Learners can listen on their own or together, during class. Educators can facilitate discussions on key issues, assign individual exploration or implement activities.

Included are:

  • Background and Summary Songs
  • Speaker / Personality Description and Bios
  • Themes
  • Discussion Questions  
  • Recommended Activities
  • Resources
  • Addendum: Songbook with Hebrew, English, and transliteration

We encourage you to put your own spin on using these materials as a foundational source.

Episode - War, Peace, and Bumper Stickers

Running time: 43:42

In the third of this four-part miniseries, Mixtape, Israel Story sets out to explore Israeli society through the stories behind some of the country’s most iconic tunes.

“when it comes to Israel, everything is complicated. Politics are complicated, religion is complicated, democracy is complicated, the conflict is complicated. Even the complications are complicated... But there is (seemingly) one island within Israeli society that escapes complexity, one thing that brings us together more than it divides us: Israeli music. Or so, at least, we thought." -Mishy Harmon, Israel Story Host
