Adnan or Jay

It’s either Adnan or Jay that did this, I just can’t get past why would Jay jeopardize going to jail himself if this wasn’t true. Not finished listening yet but pretty close and I can’t shake that.

Was great until...

Loved the first 2 seasons. The facts were stated and story told. The third season clearly has a political agenda. Not interested in the police officer hating and white racism.

I’ve been listening to serial for a little over a year and it’s the best thing I’ve done. Before listening I knew little about the judicial system, and more about what the news portrayed and how it presented crimes inflicted by civilians on police. Thank you! For shedding some light because even “criminals” are people. They exist. And once they get put into the system we forget that although they “may be safe from outside” there’s a whole other thing going on behind those walls. I’m glad that you gave Joshua a platform to share his truth about what does on. As for Jesse? ... I became more disappointed with his character after each episode because it kept getting worse. We need to fix the system. We need to really do something about it.
