Vox Tablet is an award winning weekly podcast by Tablet Magazine. It started in 2005 and has been running for 11 years. The show produced an impressive 500 episodes. On June 24, 2016, it was announced that the show had come to an end. The last episode is fittingly titled “So Long, Farewell”.
Vox Tablet was produced by Julie Subrin and hosted by Sara Ivry, who strived to create a Jewish podcast with conversations, stories, and reports from across the Jewish cultural world. Every episode started with music by Jewlia Eisenberg of the band Charming Hostess. You can follow Julie Subrin (@julie_subrin), and Sara Ivry (@saraivry) on Twitter to find out what other projects they might work on in the future.
It is not unheard of for a 500th episode to “take a brief walk down memory lane” and review some of the favorite parts of previous shows. This becomes even more poignant on a 500th episode that is known to be the end of the entire podcast. The last episode also features music from Epichorus, Otran Etkin, and Victoria Hanna, all of whom had been featured on Vox Tablet.
Right now, it is still possible to check out the archive of all the episodes of Vox Tablet and listen to individual episodes, (all of which appear to be available on iTunes). As is true of most podcasts that have ended, it is hard to say for certain how long the episodes of Vox Tablet will remain available.
