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.

If you’re here because you heard about it on crime junkie, don’t waste your time

As Sarah says “Here goes”...
(I swear if I hear that phrase one more time I will loose my mind) Good journalism is non biased. The journalist leaves their own opinions out of it. They look for facts, they look for the truth and they desire to do good and help benefit the people they’re researching. Sarah is not a good journalist. Her tone says “My opinion is right, I’ll agree to disagree but I’m obviously right and very much judging you for your choices”. It’s offensive, and downright annoying. Her snooty know it all attitude made me finally quit listening out of rage halfway through season 3. She’s pushy and rude to those she interviews and has NO respect for them, their lives or their stories. Her only motive is her selfish desire to uncover the juiciest details and make a good story for podcast. It’s evident that she’s not doing this for the people she’s interviewing/ researching but only for herself.

I have no idea what Brit and Ash heard when they listened to this podcast because I expected so much more from Serial and was disappointed and disgusted from what I heard. Don’t waste your time.

Engrossing and captivating

I am a huge fan of this show. Sarah is brilliant, intelligent and easy to understand. She breaks it down. She’s smart. I love the topics in the podcasts. She makes my morning drives to and from work, so much more enjoyable. Exposing injustice and fighting for the truth is so important, especially these days.
