Binge-Worthy Journalism: Backstage with the Creators of SERIAL, Sarah Koenig and Julie Snyder

  • Weill Hall, Green Music Center (map)

After it launched in 2014, Serial became the fastest podcast to reach five million downloads in iTunes history. The podcast presented a 12-part series centering on one legal case, proving that slow-motion journalism could captivate and sustain its vast podcast listenership. In their live presentation, co-creators Sarah Koenig and Julie Snyder take the audience backstage in the creation of this cultural phenomenon. Using some of their favorite tape, they'll tell personal behind-the-scenes stories and allow the audience to follow the ups and downs of creating a new form of modern journalism.  For tickets, go to the Student Center Box Office, GMC Box Office, or go online at
