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.

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.

Brilliant just brilliant

Could not recommend this podcast enough. One of the very best out there (season 2 was a little less gripping then 1 & 3). I miss it. Please bring series 4! Soon!!!’n

Serial series 1 to 3

A friend recommended the Serial podcast and it didn’t disappoint
As a middle aged white man who lives in London although I knew the American justice system is skewed against people of colour and the poor in the US I was shocked just how bad it is 😮
Throwing the book at young offenders and then offering them a plea to keep conviction rates high just doesn’t work, it just ends up overloading an already creaking system.
The UK is unfortunately going down the same route as the US, imprisoning more people who shouldn’t be in prison. We now have more people in prison than any other country in Western Europe, twice that of Germany and three times that of Italy & Spain.

The podcast that changed podcasting

S1 Serial is quite simply the best podcast of all time.
