This week, we're playing the first episode of Onion Public Media's* A Very Fatal Murder—it's a spot-on parody of all the true-crime programs you love to binge, from Serial to S-Town to The Staircase.


I got to talk to series directors Ryan Natoli and Fran Hoepfner, and writers Louisa Kellogg and David Sidorov. Sidorov plays David Pascall, the host and protagonist of A Very Fatal Murder. We talk about the Onion pitching process, translating the techniques of short-form video to audio fiction, and Fran's Discarded Teens (a show I wish existed).
