Curious Things Mentioned During The Episode

David De Jong | The Curious Worldview Podcast #154

The following is with David De Jong who is the Middle East Correspondent for the Dutch Newspaper, FD. He lives in Israel, and has been reporting from the ground since the early hours of October 7th.

Some of you may recognise him from an earlier appearance he made on this podcast, talking about his book Nazi Billionaires, but for this episode we exclusively talk about David’s first hand experience over the last 2 and a half weeks, which includes the horror of being among the first reporters on the ground to some of the sites hit worst from October 7th through to disinformation and how to think about the media coverage of this conflict so far.
