Very hard to pay attention

I often heard other true crime podcasts recommend Serial so I put it in my queue. Boy was season 1 torturous. There was to much of the narrating repeating what others said verus recordings of what they said so most of every episode was pretty much exclusively the narrator speaking. It was hard to connect on a personal level to follow the story and find out the truth. It wasn't very engaging. I got 2 episodes into Season 2 and realized I didn't want to waste my time or energy trying to follow the stories. Not even going to give Season 3 a chance.

He’s lying

So as I listen the second time episode 1 he says Jay would come pick him up they would eat then smoke, no way any stoner knows you smoke then eat. It’s facts.
