Creating Jewish and Israeli podcasts

About Jonny Gould

I’m a TV & radio broadcaster & commentator with 30 years on-air, with 24 of those as a media entrepreneur.

You’ve seen me on Sky News, Channel 5’s Jeremy Vine and i24News plus talking football on BBC Radio Five Live and talkSPORT. 

YET there’s no space on conventional radio for Jewish issues. Sidelined by “multiculturalism” and “diversity” with a dedicated show not required. That was the nub of a jaw dropping rejection from the BBC when I put this very series forward.

There’s a gaping hole which needs filling where in-depth interviews of Jewish interest should be. No holds barred.

I’ve created it here and I need your help. Be my Patreon!  

It started in December 2018 with a fascinating interview with Sgt. Benjamin Anthony and Brig. Gen. Amir Avivi (ret.), who are building a start-up diplomacy action to bring peace to the Middle East. It's called the New State Solution.

The series has since grown into a snapshot of Jewish and Israeli life:

Trevor Horn, the multi-million selling record producer of Frankie Goes to Hollywood, Art of Noise, ABC and Yes - and why he's gone to synagogue for the last 32 years.
Ian Austin MP and John Mann MP on their fight against anti-Jewish racism in Jeremy Corbyn's Labour

Yaakov Peri, the former head of Shin Bet on remarkable service to the State of Israel

Euan Philipps of Labour Against Antisemitism, who spoke in passionate depth about why he calls out institutional Jew hated in Corbyn’s Labour. 

* My late grandma, Olga Posaner whose own Holocaust testimony I recorded back in 1984 when she was 77 - and I was 17. 

Mark Lewis, who with Mandy Blumenthal have begun a new life in Israel having battled both personal and institutional antisemitism in the UK. 

* Chelsea football fan, Ivor Baddiel on curbing antisemitic terrace chants - and why Tottenham fans should cease self-styling themselves as "Yids".

David Bolchover, his book about holocaust survivor and European champion, Bela Guttmann uncovers discomfort in today’s Europe on holocaust guilt. 

To coincide with Israel's 71st anniversary, Lord Leslie Turnberg, biographer of Lord Balfour, discusses the impact of the Balfour Declaration.

I'll also welcome an intern to help with interviews and production of this podcast series. He or she will accompany me to interviews, then help edit and produce the podcast.

This could be your son or daughter's first-work experience in media.
