Hello, Night Owls and Early Birds!

 

Greetings from the Mediterranean! I’m Judith Levy, Israel-based correspondent for our fair site and the distaff side of The Levy & Counsell Show podcast. As of today, I’m taking on a new role at Ricochet: that of Wee-Small-Hours Editor. The time difference being what it is, I’ll be online with you from 1:30 am-5:30 am EST Sundays through Thursdays (on an official basis, that is — I’ll also be popping in at odd times just to say hello).

I look forward to getting reacquainted with old Ricochet friends and making new ones. I can’t tell you how good it is to be back.

    Hi Judith! Thank you so much for A Falling Knife. It’s fiendishly difficult to find intelligent financial/technical thrillers, so yours comes as a wonderful surprise. I hope you have more in store!

    Great to have you back, I very much enjoy the Levy and Counsell podcast! Not the wee hours for me here in Tokyo, but closer to dinner time. I have a friend in Israel, Eli Avisera, a woodturner, he lives in Jerusalem, and when I hear news about Israel, I think of him, and pray he is doing well, now I can add you to my list as well Judith.

    Shalom

    Shalom, Stu! Thank you for your kind thoughts.

    It’s wonderful to hear that the podcast is being listened to in Tokyo. I’ve never been there, but my voice has!

    I’m trying to think of something vaguely aloof to say but can’t quite find the words. Welcome back Judith!

    ps Don’t tell Mollie that I used an exclamation mark. I have an image to maintain.

    Hooray! As you can see from the instant and overwhelmingly warm response, this is a long overdue return.

    I have to break the bad mental habit of thinking of it as:

    Levity and Counsel. Which — come to think of it — isn’t a bad summary of the show.

    Welcome, Judith. Next time I have a difficult time sleeping (last Saturday night) I will check in for your insights from Israel. Very much enjoy your podcasts.

    Gosh, thanks! That’s only complicated by several thousand miles, at least one marriage, and four kids between us, though… 😉

    You’re both busted and forgiven. I mean, this is terribly exciting news.

    Welcome back! I’ve been listening to your podcast with D. Counsell, and have been very pleased with it. Your discussion of the energy sector in Israel was very enlightening.

    As a form of penance for my transgressions I’ve just stapled my hand to my ear in the what did you say position.

    My God, I love this place. Thank you to everyone who posted these warm welcomes while I was sleeping. What a great way to wake up!

    I’m definitely starting to feel a sequel coming on, by the way. 😉
