For our weekly podcast, Vox Tablet, Sara Ivry talks to musician Alicia Jo Rabins about her new project, Girls in Trouble, “a song cycle based on stories of women in the Bible.” Marjorie Ingall compares Halloween and Purim, by the numbers. Josh Lambert looks at books on vegetarianism, the Mediterranean, Man Ray, and more. And, as always, there will be updates to The Scroll all day.
