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.

You don’t make peace with your friends. 
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.

Juror sounds like an idiot. Jay is not reliable or believable.

Jay did it. Changing stories. Why was he even a credible witness? Nothing he said made sense.

the school, this many years later, could have had less bussed students. maybe a neighborhood went up nearby and there were more kids walking. you cant do a controlled experiment like that.

Thank you for all the work and time that went into making this podcast! The issues concerning race, gender, and our justice system are extremely relevant and the public should get to know all sides of the story. Can't wait to hear more :)

Jay's a shady boy who seems like he's covering something up or covering for someone else.

My opinion DYS invoked his adult sentence because of that packet of grievances.

He wanted to be the hero, the big man, the legend but all he turned out to be was a moaning, whiney, self opinionated, selfish piece of sh*t

Ok is nobody going to talk about the fact that the state’s attorney tried to get Sarah out of the room in a hearing where they created fake evidence? If Sarah wasn’t there, there would be no record of the hearing (maybe a transcript, Idk).

If Joshua goes to the Adult Unit then he will have to face those guys he snitched on in there. Thats probably what he is really worried about.

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.
