‘This American Life’ Launching Spin-Off Storytelling Podcast ‘Serial’ in Fall 2014


Beloved public radio fixture This American Life will be launching its first spin-off podcast, the weekly Serial, featuring ongoing stories that take multiple weeks to unfold. The series, which will be hosted by TAL producer Sarah Koenig, launches in Fall 2014 with a 12-episode crime story.

Our hope is that it’ll play like a great HBO or Netflix series, where you get caught up with the characters and the thing unfolds week after week, but with a true story, and no pictures. Like House of Cards, but you can enjoy it while you’re driving.
