The meteoric rise in the popularity of podcasts has not gone unnoticed by producers, networks, studios and streaming platforms, who are all eager to develop a new wave of shows that capture an already established audience while captivating the uninitiated with revolutionary approaches to storytelling. Gimlet Media’s Homecoming podcast is hugely successful and critically acclaimed. Likewise, its Amazon Prime adaptation earned three Golden Globe nominations. Let’s hear from Eli Horowitz, Co-Creator of the podcast and series about how the creative team managed to preserve the podcast’s intimate, character-driven nature; ensured that the screen adaptation maintained the creators’ vision; decided what might be omitted or added; and embraced the opportunities presented by translating an audio experience for the visual medium.
