With the fate of the 2020 - now 2021 - Tokyo Olympic Games still up in the air, our season finale tells the story of a dream to introduce a sport to a nation, and a nation to a sport. But it is a dream made up of as many tears of pain and disappointment as it is of joy and triumph.

Joel Shupack scored and sound-designed the episode with music from Blue Dot Sessions. Sela Waisblum created the mix.

The episode’s end song is Lifney She’Yigamer (“Before it Ends”) by Idan Raichel.

    Free Bonus: Behind the Scenes of “Pigging Out”

    13:46

    You probably never thought an innocent story about the history of the pig industry in Israel would be upended by a massive exposé revealing decades of pedophilia and abuse. Think again. While working on our most recent episode, a seemingly unrelated news article had massive implications for a nearly-completed story. Naomi Schneider edited and scored this special with music from Blue Dot Sessions. Sela Waisblum created the mix. Stay connected with us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and by signing up for our newsletter at israelstory.org/newsletter/.

    68: No Place Like Home

    1:01:54

    Sukkot is the Jewish holiday of temporary homes. And in our episode today we hear two very different stories - the first about one of Israel's most popular children's books and the second about a South Sudanese asylum seeker. But both of them are, deep down, about the same thing - making a home. Stay connected with us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and by signing up for our newsletter at israelstory.org/newsletter/.

    Free Bonus: How Estee Got Her Zumba Back

    35:28

    In our season opener - 'A Day at the Y' - we heard from forty-nine people hailing from eleven different countries. But we actually spoke to hundreds and hundreds of folks, whose stories you didn't get to hear. One of them was Estee Rose, the sport center's customer experience manager and a local Zumba icon. And we didn't tell her story because our friend Shaina Shealy had already done so, beautifully, on the wonderful podcast "Snap Judgment." So as a special bonus, we are re-airing it just for you!
