    A three-part series from This American Life producer Nancy Updike. When Rachel McKibbens’s father and brother died suddenly last fall, two weeks apart, from Covid, she’d had no idea her father was sick, and no idea her brother was dying. They were unvaccinated, but the story of what happened started long before that. All three episodes of "We Were Three," a new show from Serial Productions and The New York Times, are available now wherever you get your podcasts.

Great podcast but you helped a guilty man go free

Adnon is lying. Jay may have the timeline mixed up but he is so detailed that I don’t think he fabricated the entire story. It seems to me that they probably killed her together and turned on each other afterward.

Has aged poorly. Disappointed

Season 1 of Serial was the first podcast I ever listened to and opened the door to the podcasting world. A stoned liberal at the time with little to no critical thinking skills, I wholeheartedly bought the notion that perhaps Adnan was innocent. I relistened to season 1 recently and concluded that yea, he totally did it and the podcast gives Adnan the benefit of EVERY doubt pointing to racism and xenophobia as the reasons why our justice system could possibly find him guilty. I certainly don’t know what really happened, but I know Adnan is a liar or at least he’s a half liar with an awful spotty memory.
Season 2 was ok, but boring. Bergdahl was painted a bit too rosey in my opinion.
I couldn’t get past episode one with season 3 out of sheer boredom and disinterest in swallowing anymore propaganda, so I can’t fairly comment. Based on the comments I’m reading, don’t waste your time unless you can believe the hogwash information coming from media concerning Covid the last couple of years. I’m not even a dyed in the wool Republican, but trash like what this podcast and others adjacent like it (NYT, NPR, etc) are dishing out is pushing me more and more towards conservatism.

Heard about this Podcast from The Year 2022 on Hulu

I started listening to this Friday evening - 1/13/2023! Already on Season 3. Gripping, captivating, real! I commend this entire team for all they do and the stories you tell and follow. Thank you for this! Glad I found you
