Description

Serial is a podcast from the creators of This American Life, hosted by Sarah Koenig. Serial unfolds one story - a true story - over the course of a whole season. The show follows the plot and characters wherever they lead, through many surprising twists and turns. Sarah won't know what happens at the end of the story until she gets there, not long before you get there with her. Each week she'll bring you the latest chapter, so it's important to listen in, starting with Episode 1. New episodes are released on Thursday mornings.

Woulda, coulda, shoulda…
It makes sense if you’re Bowe Bergdahl.
February 2016: Sarah Koenig ducks back into the Adnan Syed case for a few days. There’s a hearing in Baltimore—a court proceeding that’s been nearly sixteen years in the making. Syed’s attorney will introduce new evidence, and present a case for why his conviction should be overturned. Sarah and producer Dana Chivvis will discuss what happens, day by day.

Wow, with all the steam this podcast has gained, I expected him to be so obviously innocent. But unless the rest of the season provides some drastic evidence or shifts in narrative, this just makes him look 98% guilty. How biased can you people be? To this point of the podcast, he absolutely did it.

being from a poor community of imagrants in the eastern us, I feel this program does a great job exposing how the "other half lives." I just simply cannot understand how middle n upper America has zero cents or frame of reference for the reality of the rest of us.

The goal to just "build your case" not get to the truth is EXACTLY what is wrong with the justice system. Also, letting someone who is complicit go free, just for giving up their co-complicit "friend"....These are 2 reasons why so many innocent people are locked up. The injustice system incentivizes locking up the wrong people. The full truth will be revealed one day.

As a vet I really struggle with the dismissive way everyone talks about the new season. I can see the parallel between this and season 1. A story about a sexy potential killer, that's awesome a discussion including the circumstances our troops are housed within "man this is so boring, I'm out! " Just seems to be a theme to me...

I am struggling really hard with this episode, because although you and Dana sought to prove that it was possible for it to occur in 21 minutes; you only gave a minute and a half for strangulation. It would be impossible for manual strangulation to kill someone in a minute and a half, it takes at least four to five minutes. a person can survive without air for over 3 minutes, not to mention in another similar case, it was proved that it took at least 4 minutes to kill someone by manual strangulation. Thus, completely disproving the state's timeline.

I'm with the attorney she spoke to, I think race played a card in this for sure. I don't know how they convicted this guy with such a huge lack of evidence and can't help but think if it was a white dude we wouldn't even be here. The word of a weed dealer isn't evidence. I hope Adnan gets his appeal at some point.

The ignorant comments on this entire series are laughable, as in, I have to laugh because the alternative sucks. I’d like to see some of these idiots get by in life under the circumstances some of the podcast subjects have had to endure.
