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. But white collar criminals weren’t the only people living there, and the other people inside had basically been forgotten about by the outside world, some of them for decades. Shipped to Timbuktu by PJ Vogt, Alex Goldman and Alex Blumberg (Reply All, 2015) A missent email from the world of professional cookie advisers send PJ hurtling down a path to WWII Japan. 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.
