Episode 51: Serial

“Koenig wants to find the truth, whatever it is, more for human reasons than for legal ones. The team started producing “Serial” without knowing how it would end; in fact, they still don’t know. Earlier, when I had asked Snyder about this, she said, “We don’t know exactly how much we have figured out.” They’ve figured out plenty, but what is the whole truth? And how do you know when you’ve found it? Can it even be found?”

— Sarah Larson of The New Yorker

“It’s funny, I feel like I’m not reporting this any differently than I report any story for This American Life. The structuring is also very much the same, except you’re structuring two things at once: you’re structuring each episode so it’s a self-contained thing that makes sense and has an internal logic and arc, but they’re all a part of this much larger thing that you also have to keep in mind. That’s very different, to have that extra layer of the big story you’re telling.”
