    We Were Three - Trailer

    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.

We were three

Must be the most boring and monotonous podcast I’ve listened to in quite some time. Do not listen to this while driving!

Season 1 was fantastic. Further seasons seem solely invested in pushing a political agenda. I’m out.

Gave extra star for season 1

The first season of serial was truly a transcendent high art experience. To this day I encourage people to listen and I enjoy thinking back on the case (I am firmly in the guilty camp). I was really disappointed when I tried out this season and immediately discovered it was about fringe COVID vax conspiracists. Highlighting COVID kooks is just such poor taste right now. After everything we’ve gone through we ought to be going out of our way to be gracious to people for being crazy during that period. Lord knows the self appointed vax police were just as cringeworthy. I’ll give you guys one more shot to pick a great topic but after that I’m out. S-Town was fantastic btw.
