Israel's answer to This American Life (or, as Ira Glass fondly puts it, 'the Israelis who are ripping off our show') openly models itself on TAL, and is indeed pleasingly similar in tone. The program's first season in English launched in 2014 (it was already a hit in Hebrew) and each episode, as you might expect, comprises a handful of stories around a theme or tells one singularly interesting tale. When in season, episodes are released bi-weekly, and they run to about an hour.
