Girl Crush: Sarah Koenig

sarah koenig 1

I’ve been a long-time lover of This American Life but recently my girl crush on staff producer Sarah Koenig has been through the roof! A few weeks ago, TAL aired an episode that also served as the first episode for a spin-off podcast called Serial. I was immediately hooked. Sarah’s poignant journalism and writing is unparalleled. Over the course of the season, Serial is unfolding just one non-fiction story–in this case, a story about a murder and high school sweethearts and a man’s claimed innocence. Basically, a tale you want to tune in for. Β And they promise to keep telling the story until they “get to the bottom of it”.

This is all to say, I’m completely obsessed with Sarah Koenig. I want to be her. If you haven’t checked out Serial yet you totally should. No one could tell this story like her.

P.S. Here are some of Ms. Koenig’s best-loved This American Life episodesΒ and one of my favorite episodesΒ that I still talk about all the time.
