Starlee Kine is the creator of Mystery Show, a podcast that solved everyday mysteries, the sort of mysteries that can’t be solved by Googling. Like ‘how can a video store disappear overnight?’ and ‘exactly how tall is Jake Gyllenhaal?’ Mystery Show is about the wonder that happens offline, the human connections that happen on the way to each solution.
The first season of Mystery Show was a sensation, topping the international podcast charts and celebrated by iTunes as the Best New Podcast of 2015. It was praised by critics and loved by fans for its mix of in-depth reporting and surprising story turns. When news of its cancellation broke, the podcast world was left in shock.
Starlee joins us at the London Podcast Festival to talk about Mystery Show, her work on This American Life, and all things podcasting.
