The True Meaning of BSing

Sean K = me, Sean Kneese. I originally started this podcast as simply a space for traditional interviews with artists and other creative types. As I started bringing on increasing numbers of diverse guests, the show organically developed its own theme: I converse with people who think and live outside the box and are pursuing their creative and intellectual passions. They are non-conformists: people who go against the grain and follow their own path. I also like to provide a platform for opinions that aren't often heard in the mainstream media, and prefer to keep a conversational feel to my interviews. I enjoy talking to all different kinds of people from all walks of life and I hope that my podcast can show that we all have more in common than we think, even if it might not always seem that way on the surface.

Episode 119: Jewish and Palestinian Solidarity, Sheikh Jarrah, The West Bank, Gaza, and Palestinian Rights with Activists Awdah Al-Hathalean and Sam Stein

In this episode of BS’ing with Sean K , Sean Kneese talks to activists Awdah Al-hathalean and Sam Stein about Gaza, Sheikh Jarah, The West Bank and the struggle for Palestinian rights. Awdah and Sam met while Sam was with a group called Jewish Center for Non-Violence. He stayed with Awdah in his home in the Palestinian village of El Kherson for several months and celebrated Ramadan with him and his family. He was with Awdah and other Palestinians as they were being attacked by radical settlers. Sam talks about growing up in an Orthodox Jewish household, and how he started to become more critical of Israeli policy towards Palestinians as he got older. Awdah talks about life in his village El Kherson, life for people in Gaza and the human rights abuses Palestinians face on a regular basis. He also talks about how meeting Sam and other Jewish people fighting for Palestinian rights changed his perspective as well. Since their first meeting, Sam and Awdah have become best of friends and are living proof that Jews and Palestinians can stand together for justice.
