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.

So, in the first episode you look to the color of people as a division between us and overlook the clear differences that actually should be talked about.: different cultures. It isn't the color of our skin that separates us, but the values we have. For example, the loud "shared" music in the elevator. Educated lawyers (black or white) would look at that and see a cultural faux pas while the uneducated (again black or white) would see this as an extension of the club scene beyond last night. See, a difference in culture. It is ridiculous to think that the glances between the "white" people means they are thinking about race. What if, just what if, they are looking at each other thinking that "this is culturally inappropriate to assume that I like this kind of music or that I want to hear it right now?" This podcast is edging on the side of being a race-baiting diatribe.

Is no one considering Stephanie? It's so odd she refused to even talk to her closest friends about it both then and still after all this time. I can definitely see Jay covering for her... If he himself didn't do it. Or they were in on it together.

This series is reminding me of the Chamberlain case in Australia. There are still people who'd say Lindy was guilty, even if God himself told them they were wrong. Can't stand people making jokes or flippant remarks about real people when it's a real life at stake. Poor Hae Min Lee. Why on earth was she killed? That story seems buried with her. Its also blindingly obvious Adnan shouldn't be in jail. How can a man actually be in jail for life on such flimsy, crocked up evidence???

Sooo...if I assume a rich, powerful, white guy is a sexual predator based on modern stereotypes, that's cool right?

Heard the whole season 1 today. Enthralling is all I can say. But the one thing I can't wrapnly head around is Jay. He admitted to digging the hole, and helping dispose of the body. So, this should narrow down the guilty parties ( Jay and ?) scratch out Mr S., unless he knew Jay. wouldn't that be something! It's either Adnan and Jay equally guilty. Or just Jay. and Jay being the smartest to get away with it. Regardless, Jay getting 2 years probation is laughable. I'm sorry but even at that age you know right from wrong. IDC how street you are. the second you're asked to help with that you run away , call the police and tell them everything ASAP. I don't buy his BS reasons. Adnan is a charming dude, has the gift of gab. but I believe he's a sociopath and to some extent a narcissist. He sells it very well. He even convinces himself he's innocent. I wanted to believe he's innocent, but in the end I think he's where he needs to be. However, Jay? man, how in the hell did he get 2 years probation only? because he cried? And showed remorse? and was cooperative? I mean anyone would in that position would do ,and act the same way if they knew it would help them get that kind of sentence! Anyways, great show! I am addicted to it! can't wait to hear season 2!

"It never helps to be black, and it never hurts to be white." this is so disgusting and sad.

I wish Sarah would go through the same little program/exercise that some reporters and activist have went through that had to decide in the heat of the moment if a gun was real or if someone was armed and a threat. alot of people would change their thoughts on tamir being an unjustified shooting. not saying it was right but it would shift the perspective of someone that has no idea of what it's like to be there. https://youtu.be/yfi3Ndh3n-g

Reshawn had to take responsibility for being at the wrong place at the wrong time with the wrong crowd. Gaul wasnt looking for him to admit he was the reason the crimes happened but accept responsibility for the consequences of being associated with criminals. That he himself got into trouble because of the company he kept, that no one forced him to be there when the offenses took place.
