Netanyahu builds next electoral platform on new podcast

With a new podcast and headquarters and renewed enthusiasm, opposition head Benjamin Netanyahu is already campaigning for the next election.

Former Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu launched a new video podcast last week. The show follows a familiar format, with Netanyahu and a guest spending an hour discussing one of the major issues facing Israel. The guests he chooses are prominent figures from the particular focus of that show.
