Mishy Harman of Israel Story
The Wolf Den #98 February 4, 2016
Mishy Harman first heard This American Life on a road trip across the United States, listening to a compilation of shows provided by his college roommate. That binge inspired the Jerusalem native to co-create Israel Story, a radio show and podcast focused on the lives of people from his home country. On this episode of The Wolf Den Mishy explains how the show—one of Israel’s first podcasts—came together, and what it was like to go from novice producer to having a hit radio show. He also discusses what makes the show stand out in his country’s media landscape, and what goes into making the project sustainable, especially in the much more competitive US podcast market.
