Noam Jacobson, known for the wide variety of roles he played on the popular political satire Latma, burst into the public eye years earlier with his still-active band Inyan Acher.

Latma catapulted into international success with the uber-viral song, We Con the World, in which Noam sings many parts.  Included in the roles Noam played on the popular satirical YouTube channel are Bibi Netanyahu, Barack Obama, the popular character Tawil Fadiha, Palestinian Minister of Uncontrollable Rage, the hippie John Zelokoreli, Reality Perception advisor to Obama, and the extreme leftist journalist, Yariv Googleheimer. Noam shares stories of his Latma audition, the fun he had recording the show, and the real scoop on the demise of Latma.

But Latma is only a small part of who Noam is. "People see only a small part of me doing my Latma stuff," Noam shares. What reflects the true Noam Jacobson more thoroughly is his new solo album 40 Days, a much more serious and spiritual album than his previous works. The title of the album refers to the midrash in which a heavenly voice calls out forty days before a baby is born to announce whom the child will marry. "Forty Days is much more representative of who I am," says Noam.

In this not-to-be-missed show, Noam talks about religion, Latma, his fears, and his future plans. Tune in!
