I don’t know about you, but I was a little late to the game on being obsessed with Serial. Have you heard about this podcast series? I listened to the first episode of two a while back with my brother whilst driving to Tahoe one long snowy trip last winter. Then I kinda forgot all about it.
Well, during my trip to Maui a few weeks back, I kinda listened to seasons one and two. It just, kinda happened! They are the easiest podcasts to listen to, I swear! In season one the author Sarah Koenig investigates the murder of a young girl name Hae Min Lee in Baltimore in 1999. A while later, her ex-boyfriend Adnan Syed is arrested and later convicted of killing her, and is currently serving life in prison. She interviews just about anyone she could to see if he really did it.
Season two is a bit more recent, and focuses on a U.S soldier named Bowe Bergdahl who was a POW of the Taliban for about 5 years, and was only recently released. Most recently, the army has charged him and is investigating the particulars of why he walked off from his post.
I mostly just laid out on the beach and had my headphone in and played episode after episode, it was just that good.
Have you gotten into either season one or two of Serial? Any other podcasts I should get into?
