I was listening to AFR a few months back and heard a priest giving either a homily or a lecture, and he went on to affirm a dispensationalist view toward the Jews. He posited that God still has a covenant with the Jewish people that is distinct from the Church, and it is still yet to be fully filled. I can't recall if he made any references to the modern state of Israel or not.

Is he alone in this, or is there a real presence of this sort of dispensationalism in (Western) Orthodoxy?

The Jews of our days are awaiting Christ and He wishes to save them. In this sense, God has a "covenant" with them (as much as He does with everybody else) because the Jews are not the (only) chosen people anymore. But, no, God does not (still) have anything special with the Jews except that He is sensitive to the fact that they remained in a very powerful delusion.

I certainly hope it's the former.

I wish I could find the podcast. It seemed like it was a Bible study format with an exegetical focus. I believe the speaker was trained in Biblical studies.

Would have to have a quote of what he said to make a statement.

Even to suggest the covenant with Israel was outside the Church is to misunderstand the Church anyhow.

Well that type of thinking is so common among Protestants (even conservative ones) and Catholics in America that I wouldn't be surprised if there's a bit of "on-the-ground" influence amongst your average parish priests.

St. Paul says that God will someday graft Jews who do not persist in unbelief back onto the Vine, which could be interpreted to mean that there is some divine plan to preserve them until that time. Perhaps that is what the speaker was talking about.
