AT&T Performing Arts Center presents #HearHere: Creating Serial: An Evening with Sarah Koenig and Julie Snyder
As part of its #HearHere series, AT&T Performing Arts Center will present Creating Serial: An Evening with Sarah Koenig and Julie Snyder. Both Koenig and Snyder are National Public Radio veterans, having served as producers on This American Life.
Serial, hosted by Koenig, tells one story - a true story - over the course of a season. It has won every major award for broadcasting, including the duPont-Columbia, Scripps Howard, Edward R. Murrow, and the first-ever Peabody awarded to a podcast.
Serial became an obsession for many when its first season, which delved into the case of accused murderer Adnan Syed, was released in 2014. Subsequent seasons have focused on Bowe Bergdahl, a former POW who had been accused of deserting the military, and the Cleveland, Ohio, court system.
