Blindspot: The Road to 9/11

Reporter's Notebook

Originally Aired: Wednesday, September 9, 2020

Available for viewing


Tonight, we celebrate the launch of the HISTORY and WNYC Studios co-production “Blindspot: The Road to 9/11” with a behind-the-scenes look at the podcast series.

Host and WNYC reporter Jim O’Grady covered the aftermath of the attacks for the New York Times — but the process of making the podcast (which focuses on the years leading up to 9/11/2001) surprised him again and again.

He’ll unpack some of those surprises with editor Jenny Lawton. And members of the production team — including producer Ursula Sommer and technical director Joe Plourde — will pull back the curtain on how they told a story that spanned decades and continents. WNYC’s Arun Venugopal will be moderating the conversation.
