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.

Sarah Koenig is a genius!

Sarah Koenig is genius and her story telling mesmerising. Her Serial season 1 was such a treat, compelling, researched and so engaging. I will listen and watch anything she is involved in.

One of the best podcasts I’ve listened to

This is a fascinating pod that anyone with an interest in crime drama should listen to. Sarah does a great job presenting these real life stories and, at the same time, explaining everything we need to know in a way that’s not dull. I’ve learned a lot from this podcast and it’s a shame that I’m all caught up now and can’t listen to any more!

Brendan Dassey

It amazes me that you can win an appeal to a new trial, once again defeat the state at a higher court, and then lose 4-3 at the highest court in the state. The odds are stacked against you the minute you are arrested. Then to win an appeal only to give the states two more cracks at it is disgusting.This defendant followed the same rollercoaster as Brendan Dassey.

I don’t know the guilt of AS or BD but winning an appeal for a new trial should be honoured instead of giving the state two “do-overs”. Winning an appeal is damn near impossible and could take a decade.

The WM3 were done for had HBO not rescued them and got celebrity money to fund their appeal process showing all the mistakes untrained and biased police made.

We really need to look at how the appeals process is done. Recent studies have at least 10 percent of prison population wrongly convicted.
