No Place Like Home
by Phoebe Judge and Lauren Sporher (Criminal, 2015)
In the early 90s, a wealthy magazine publisher was convicted of fraud and sentenced to 18 months in a minimum security prison in Louisiana.

We'll Drive Till We Find An Exit [EXCERPT]
presented by PJ Vogt at the 2016 Third Coast Conference
A session about the joy and fear of pursuing stories without any idea of how they're going to succeed, or if they're going to succeed at all. Reply All’s PJ Vogt shares some tricks for making these kinds of off-the-map stories work. He’ll talk about how you gather tape for a story you don't yet have a map for, how to include your original sense of wonder and discovery in your final script, and how to take stories that feel ordinary and insist on them becoming more strange.
