If you found this by googling “Sarah Keonig Impressions,” then you’re probably gonna be disappointed by mine, and this parody definitely won’t make any sense to you, haha. On the flip side, if you’re a Blimey Cow fan and you haven’t listened to Serial, you’ll be confused about the plot & style, but you’ll recognize the characters!
Our bi-weekly Blimey Cow Podcast has been MIA for a few months (whoops!), but Josh had the great idea to bring it back with a parody of Serial. We’ve both been listening through season 1 for the last few weeks, in preparation to impersonate not only Sarah Koenig, but also the overall tone and style of the podcast. I’m actually pretty pleased with my “mediocre” impression of SK, but at the same time I do recognize that it’s not gonna win me any contests, haha.
This was a really fun project! I always forget how much I enjoy podcasting and audio until I’ve got a mic in front of me again. Honestly, doing this parody is just what I needed to get me excited about starting the BC podcast again (because, while the podcast has been MIA for about three months, I’ve been MIA from the podcast for much longer – it’s been just the guys for a while). So, I’m glad we did it. I’m proud of the finished product! I thought Jordan’s Adnan impression was perfect, and Josh did an awesome job with the editing – he really nailed the “feel” of Serial.
