Host Alex Kane looks beyond the headlines and stereotypes of Jewish settlers in the Occupied West Bank in conversation with doctoral candidate in Anthropology, at the University of California Berkeley, Callie Maidhof. Maidhof recently lived in a settlement for 10 months and, while the gun-toting, religious/nationalist ideological settler does exist, the majority of settlers see themselves as apolitical and are seeking a suburban middle-class lifestyle. The broadcast ends with Maidhof's interview with Ariel settler Orit Arfa, whose YouTube videos "Jews Can't Stop" and "Gaza Wrecking Ball" went viral.
