Welcome to This is a Story. At its inception, this is a podcast about storytelling and stories told, from the perspectives of journalism and creative writing.
Right now, like so many others, we’re fascinated Serial, a podcast that’s exploring the murder of Baltimore-area teenager Hae Min Lee in 1999 and the subsequent arrest and conviction of her ex-boyfriend, Adnan Sayed. We will explore not only the details Serial uncovers, but also how the exploration of that story affects the storytelling. It’s fascinating in so many ways and hopefully our discussion will add to the conversation
As this podcast grows and develops we hope to explore how stories impact our lives, the lives around us and the world at large. We’ll follow Serial as it unfolds, but we won’t stop there. Let’s look at this discussion about Serial as a beginning.
Thanks for joining us.
