It’s awards season and we’ve got a little nachus to share.

One of our Vox Tablet podcast episodes–Taken for a Ride in Jerusalem–by contributor Daniel Estrin has won the Award for Digital Audio given by the Society of Professional Journalists.

In the podcast, Estrin covers the controversial light-rail system in Jerusalem, which has brought all the disparate citizens of the holy city tenuously together and, surprisingly, united them about one thing: their criticism of the trains. Check it out.

And…while you’re enjoying our Vox Tablet content, be sure to vote for Vox Tablet in the Webby Awards, where it is up against some of the behemoths including CNN, The New Yorker, Penguin, and HowStuffWorks.
