How did 9/11 the day become 9/11 the idea? That question drives Pineapple Street Studios and award-winning host Dan Taberski (Missing Richard Simmons, Running From COPS, The Line) to shift the focus to what happened on 9/12, and every day after that. 9/12 is a poignant, surprising, and surprisingly funny seven episode series about people who wake up on 9/12 having to navigate a new, radically altered world. A teenager gets caught up in an out-of-control conspiracy theory that he helped start. A Pakistani business owner finds hundreds of his Brooklyn neighbors are disappearing. Joke-writers at The Onion must figure out just how soon is “too soon”? 9/12 asks what it all means. We know what happened on 9/11. But what happened on 9/12 to alter our memory and our perspective forever?
The series 9/12 earned three Podcast Academy Awards at the 2022 Ambies, including Podcast of the Year.
Writer and producer Dan Taberski is known for his investigative journalism podcasts. After losing a friend in the 9/11 tragedy, he navigates the events, stories, and ideas surrounding that day with poise and a great sense of humor. The 9/12 podcast turns attentive listeners into learners. This podcast delivers powerful, never-before-heard stories of the aftermath of 9/11 and how people still live out the now-decades-old tragedy today.
Taberski interviews and analyzes memories and experiences surrounding the events of that infamous morning. The enormity of the attacks impacted relatives, friends, and partners of those lost. 9/11 changed everything, and this podcast does an incredible job of clarifying those changes with care.
In the aftermath, some US media outlets served humor and satire to Americans that struggled to find a respectful tone. Yet they were self-aware enough to continue poking fun at those in charge. What about people who were off-grid and didn't find out in real-time like the rest of the world? Taberski sheds light on these stories and many more.
