Serial Podcast

quote [ The physical evidence against Adnan Syed was scant - a few underwhelming fingerprints. So aside from cell records, what did the prosecutors bring to the jury, to shore up Jay's testimony? Sarah weighs all the other circumstantial evidence they had against Adnan, including curious behavior, a disconcerting note, and an unexplained mid-afternoon phone call. ]

I heard about this podcast via another podcast a couple weeks ago and listened to the first four episodes within a day or two. It's now up to episode six and I'm completely hooked. It's pretty fascinating.

I just hope it goes somewhere. I'm afraid of looking it up in case this reporting has actually uncovered something big that would ruin the climax of the series if I "read ahead".

The website doesn't go past what the podcast has talked about, but does include, for lack of a better word, spoilers for all the episodes already released.

Honestly, I don't know if this can go anywhere. But maybe that's the point? Or maybe it's not so much about this one particular case, as from what I can tell they do plan to do other stories.

I'd say, if this sounds intriguing to you, listen to the first episode. It's the longest, at an hour, and really just lays the foundation that pulls you in.

Yeah. I've been listening to the podcasts. I'm more worried that if I look up the current state of the case, I'll spoil the nicely plotted podcast. I'm hoping there is at least a little drama to cover that this reporting itself drums up. I really like this kind of long-form piece, I just wish I was late to the party and could binge the entire thing in a week.

Pretty compelling listening.
