It used to be that the way reporters covered a story depended on where they worked. If you were a TV reporter, you did video; print reporters did print; radio reporters did radio. Now, we’re living in an age of convergence. On the web, it’s easier to choose whichever medium seems most appropriate to the story you’re doing. Or you can mix different kinds of media.
What about Serial? How is telling this story with audio different from how it would be told some other way? What other criteria should determine which media you use to tell a story?
