      WBEZ's Podcast Passport Presents: Creating Serial

      Big fan of Serial and This American Life? Always wanted to know the inner workings of a hit podcast? Ready for a fun night with fellow podcast fans? Yes? Then this event is for you.

      Join WBEZ Chicago on June 28, for a Podcast Passport event with the makers of Serial. Launched in 2014 by the creators of This American Life, Serial quickly became the most-downloaded podcast in the world. It has won every major award for broadcasting including duPont-Columbia, Scripps Howard, Edward R. Murrow, and the first-ever Peabody awarded to a podcast.

      At this event, Serial creators Sarah Koenig and Julie Snyder will give the audience a behind the scenes look at how they put together the show. They’ll explain the challenges of reporting each season – first, the case of Adnan Syed; next, Bowe Bergdahl and the war in Afghanistan, and most recently, a year inside a felony courthouse in Cleveland. And, they’ll talk about the surprises, shocks, and personal ups and downs of creating a new form of audio storytelling.
