IsraelCast Episode 144
Switching gears away from the law, Glasgow native Eve Barlow rose to prominence as one of the leading music journalists in Britain. After amassing a large social media platform and significant following, Barlow turned her focus towards Jews and Israel, staunchly advocating against antisemitism and anti-Zionism, both in general and in the British music and political scene. Host Steven Shalowitz sits down with Barlow to discuss her experiences in the music journalism industry, why she felt the need to start advocating for Jews, and how she feels so much of anti-Zionist activity is performative rather than sincere.
Eve Barlow is an LA-based music and pop culture journalist. She previously served as Deputy Editor of the New Musical Express and currently contributes to New York Magazine, The Guardian, Billboard, LA Times, Pitchfork, and GQ, among other publications. Barlow is also an outspoken voice on Jewish identity, Zionism, and fighting antisemitism on social media, and has also shared her views in publications such as Tablet. Barlow was also named one of The Algemeiner’s Top 100 People Positively Influencing Jewish Life in both 2020 and 2021.
