Having already scaled Mt. National Magazine Awards, last week Tablet Magazine’s podcast series, Vox Tablet, won the 2010 Gold World Medal for best religion programming at the International Radio Programming and Promotion Awards. So a special congratulations to host Sara Ivry and producer Julie Subrin.
The honor was awarded on the basis of these three podcasts:
• “Remembrance Day”: Gregory Warner reports from Rwanda on commemorating the country’s 1994 genocide, with Israel’s Holocaust Remembrance Day as a template.
• “In Training”: Matt Lieber spends time with Jewish boxer Yuri Foreman.
• “Blessed Bluegrass”: Jon Kalish profiles Orthodox bluegrass musician Jerry Wicentowski, whose observance prevents him from weekend gigs, but not from virtuosic guitar work.
