Weekly Roundup - 8/1/22

This week: Claire Schwartz talks to Dorothy Roberts and Charlotte Shane about the criminalization of abortion and the expansion of the police state. Hannah Black reviews the Showtime series Couples Therapy.

From the newsletter, Ben Ratskoff speaks with Yazan Khalili of The Question of Funding, a Palestinian art collective whose exhibit in this year's documenta was accused of antisemitism by German media, and Alex Kane interviews the president of the Ben & Jerry's Foundation about settlement boycotts. And in the latest episode of our staff podcast On the Nose, Arielle Angel speaks with two Germany-based writers and organizers about how Germany’s understandably zealous Holocaust memory culture is playing out among Jews, Palestinians, and other Germans.
