About this show

First there was Adnan Syed, then there was Bowe Bergdahl, and now it's the Cleveland court system… 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 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.
