Webby Nominations Are Up: Vote for Vox Tablet!
Help Tablet best the likes of CNN, The New Yorker, and HowStuffWorks
Listeners in the know tune into our Vox Tablet podcast, which spans the globe each week in search of a good story.
From the artistic, the religious, the comical, and the political to the improbable, the impossible, the controversial, there are no barriers. Vox Tablet is, indeed, the voice of Tablet. Naturally, we’re quite proud to announce that Vox Tablet has been nominated for a prestigious Webby Award in the Radio & Podcasts category.
As a testament to our quality, we’re up against some heavyweights including The New Yorker, Penguin Press, CNN, and HowStuffWorks. The Webby Awards will choose their winner, but there is also a People’s Voice Award that lets listeners vote for their favorite podcast.
Being coy isn’t what got us here, so we’re asking you to cast a vote for us. The story of the Jewish people is that of the underdog. It’s only fitting that the underdog should win here too.

WAIT, WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO COMMENT?
Tablet is committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing on Jewish life, all free of charge. We take pride in our community of readers, and are thrilled that you choose to engage with us in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse). Starting today, then, we are asking people who'd like to post comments on the site to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping us bring you the ambitious journalism that brought you here in the first place.
I NEED TO BE HEARD! BUT I DONT WANT TO PAY.
Readers can still interact with us free of charge via Facebook, Twitter, and our other social media channels, or write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Each week, we’ll select the best letters and publish them in a new letters to the editor feature on the Scroll.
We hope this new largely symbolic measure will help us create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all of our readers, and, as always, we thank you deeply for your support.
