‘Stranger Things’ actor Brett Gelman: ‘I woke up from being woke’

“The Quad,” Ep. 9

American actor Brett Gelman joins “The Quad” this week to discuss his journey from being a “woke” critic of Israel’s policy to becoming an outspoken supporter of the Jewish state. Gelman, together with fiancée (they got engaged in Israel in May) actor/singer Ari Dayan, describes what effect Oct. 7 has had on their Jewish identity and how Jews in Hollywood are afraid to support Israel vocally.

“The Quad” also discusses the global nature of the conflict, which goes far beyond the borders between Israel and Gaza. From the Houthis expanding their attacks on any international ship in the Red Sea to the continued attacks by Hezbollah from Lebanon, the current war has far-reaching implications for the Middle East and beyond.

And, of course, learn the Scumbags and Heroes of the Week!
