Stephen Colbert asked "Serial" producer Sarah Koenig a question last night that many fans of the hit podcast have been wondering:
"Will that girl ever learn how to pronounce 'MailChimp'?"
In addition to ribbing Koenig about the MailChimp sponsorship, which features a non-native speaker stumbling over the word, Colbert asked the "This American Life" producer how she became interested in the murder case at the heart of the podcast.
"Did you always want to do true crime reporting that people listen to on the treadmill?" he asked.
Koenig, a former Baltimore Sun reporter, told the "Colbert Report" host that she was intrigued by the complexities of the case of the 1999 murder of Woodlawn High School student Hae Min Lee.
