_Serial_, True Crime, and Podcasting’s “Golden Age”
When Adnan Syed was freed from prison recently, it sparked renewed interest in Serial, the first podcast to win a Peabody Award and the series that spawned arguably the most addictive podcast genre, true crime. Indeed, media critics have argued we’re living in a “golden age of true crime” in which a proliferation of true-crime podcasts are viewed by true-crime junkies and novices alike millions of times a day. The panelists on this webinar panel will take stock of the genre less than a decade after Serial initiated it, reflecting on pop culture’s fascination with true-crime podcasts and the genre’s past, present, and possible future(s).

Panelists include:

Dawn Cecil, Professor of Criminology, University of South Florida

Adam Golub, Professor of American Studies, California State University, Fullerton

Matt Jordan, Department Head and Associate Professor of Film Production and Media Studies, Penn State University

Jan 20, 2023 12:00 PM in Eastern Time (US and Canada)
