SNL's Serial spoof gets to the bottom of Santa Claus' secrets

New, 12 comments

It's official: Saturday Night Live has spoofed a podcast, and, of course, it's none other than the hugely popular Serial. Fortunately, the skit is up there with some of the finest work to come out of this uneven season. Cecily Strong pulls off a pitch-perfect Sarah Koenig who's moved past true crime to answer some age-old mysteries about Santa Claus. The Christmas connection is probably the weakest link here, but did you ever think a podcast would be big enough to be parodied on SNL?
