Remember a few months ago when Serial happened and we all ended up intimately familiar with the movements of a bunch of teenagers 15 years ago and the ins and outs of the Baltimore criminal justice system? Well, for that the podcast has been honored with a Peabody award. They actually won it back in April, had the ceremony on May 31st, but it won’t be televised until tonight. But luckily we have this brief snippet of it that shows us that even Cecily Strong couldn’t get enough of Sarah Koenig for a while there.
I think it’s the “they talked about Hae” line that really nails Koenig’s inflection and speech patterns, but all of it is pretty good. As for the subject of Serial, his case is still making its way through the Baltimore court system and will probably still be going on when the podcast returns for its next season. Real life court takes a lot longer than TV.
