Refugees in Jordan, Houthis in Yemen and Herring in New York16 February 2023
VOI's Bassem Eid joins Yishai Fleisher in-studio to discuss Jordan's challenges -- two million refugees and serious problems with ISIS and the Muslim Brotherhood -- and the goings-on in Yemen. Who are the Houthis? What are they doing in Yemen? And are they an Iranian proxy?
Then, Mark Russ Federman, the author of "Russ & Daughters: Reflections and Recipes from the House that Herring Built," joins Yishai in-studio to tell the story of how one Manhattan store lasted for an entire century in the same location, created a craving for traditional schmaltz herring -- and then merged it with Swedish tastes to create a sensation.
