Intractable is a podcast about a well-covered but often misunderstood topic: the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Each episode takes on one subject—national identity, military culture, political extremism, historical memory, psychology, religion, and media coverage, among others—and investigates its effect on the overall situation in Israel and the Palestinian Territories.

Through thorough research and interviews with people from myriad backgrounds, expertises, and experiences, Intractable seeks to tell a complete and complicated story—one that gets closer to the truth than any one-sided narrative ever could; one that may, in its telling, evoke more questions than answers.

Intractable is produced with the help of the Daniel Pearl International Journalism Institute (DPIJI) and the Sammy Ofer School of Communications at the Interdisciplinary Center (IDC) in Herzliya, Israel. The project is made possible thanks to the generous support the Charles P. Howland Fellowship and the Cohen Public Service Fellowship from Yale University.
