Good listening

I like listening and hearing their views on serial season 1 and their theories re the crime. But I noticed sometimes they make factual mistakes and other times will make a comment on sth they don't fully understand what they are talking about like some of the legal aspects about Adnan's pcr hearing. Their questions are not very insightful and Maura laughs for no reason a lot.
But that said, I'm still listening and enjoy their strong views and the discussion on serial season 1. Not interested so much on their show re serial 2 .

The Serial Serial, I have a theory...

On the conviction an Adnan Syed, I had to co-teach a mystery murder and our middle school class had to listen to the Serial
Podcast and after reviewing evidence etc, they had to come to their own conclusions... I am happy that some of my students had one of the same questions as I did. We feel that there might be a possibility that if jay lied in his testimony in blaming the murder on Adnan, Why oh why did no one Ever question Jays Girl friend?!? If he were ever going to lie and protect anyone, it would be her. She was friends with Hae. The fact that no one EVER questioned her(and think about it if Jay was lying to protect her he kept her safe and clear from this so he succeeded in his plot to protect her IF there was another scenario that he left out, I’m just saying) now we don’t know anything about their friendship or her personality. I feel that it should have been at least an avenue that deserved a closer look. Obviously I enjoy your podcast about a podcast, pretty cool idea guys. Ten thumbs up(I only have two but my students agree)

This podcast was absolutely silly! It is just some people who are talking in a microphone instead of writing their opinions on Reddit!
