"'Reports of violence erupted today': Serial, Limetown, and the American Journalistic Podcast"

This project explores Limetown as a fictional extension of a journalistic approach represented in Serial. This approach, then, is examined as a new iteration of American New Journalism. This paper argues that problematizing the relationship between truth and fiction in media is often a response to cultural shifts. Ultimately, I argue, podcasting should be examined as distinct from previous iterations of this tradition because of it's reliance on alternative economic models.
