Serial Creators Sarah Koenig & Julie Snyder

Peabody award-winning podcast pioneers Sarah Koenig and Julie Snyder, the creators of NPR’s “Serial,” take audiences behind-the-scenes on April 1 to banter about the phenomenon they unleashed. The fastest podcast to reach five million downloads in iTunes history (and now at more than 100 million downloads), “Serial” reflects Koenig-Snyder’s brand new form of journalism – an investigative, free-wheeling approach that takes just one story, which is then drilled down further and further until a more curious story is revealed.
