    Serial podcast

    Anyone else listening to this? It's a This American Life spinoff hosted by Sarah Koenig. She's examining the story of a man who was convicted (wrongfully?) of murdering his girlfriend 15 years ago.

    Good stuff and addicting.

    Oh yea, I love it. Saw a new one popped up this morning.

    For the record, at this point, I don't think he did it. Im interested to see how it progresses and what their conclusion is.

    How many episodes will there be?

    Not sure but I think the number of episodes is yet to be determined as they're still piecing the show together.

    I am on the fence about whether he did it. Today's episode nudged me toward yes. One thing this show brings out is how terribly unreliable our memories are. Our brains are constantly editing.

    Yea it really is fascinating to listen to. I am going to have to wait until tonight to listen, but looking forward to it.

    I believe it was last episode that they had called some dude up that was never asked about anything during the trial, would be nearly impossible to remember minute facts like that.

    Decided to start it today. I'm hooked. I don't know if I can wait a week between episodes.


    Hooray for Metaphors!

    Just starting the first one now. Perfect thing to listen to while working. Can you get these mobile? I'd like to ride my bike or walk the dog while listening over the weekend.

    Re: Serial podcast

    3 episodes in. They sure are painting it so far like he's innocent. Granted the narrator's role is trying to prove that.

    couple questions:

    1. I assume this is fictional and not based off a real case?
    2. Do they have other serial podcasts with a different story?


    I did 3 hours of yardwork yesterday and these made the time go fast. Was a great listen. Even better than a book read on tape. It's made for listening.
