Serial is a podcast from the creators of This American Life, hosted by Sarah Koenig. Serial unfolds one story - a true story - over the course of a whole season. The show follows the plot and characters wherever they lead, through many surprising twists and turns. Sarah won't know what happens at the end of the story until she gets there, not long before you get there with her. Each week she'll bring you the latest chapter, so it's important to listen in, starting with Episode 1. New episodes are released on Thursday mornings.

Customer Reviews

Journalism at its best

This is a great show, produced, researched & narrated very well. Don’t agree with the reviewer who found the second season to be boring & only one sided - it appears they did try to interview police & prosecutors but none were interested in participating and I found the stories to be the reality for many people of color. PLEASE GIVE US MORE SEASONS!

Season 3

I wanted to listen since I’m from Cleveland. I feel she has a lot of nerve about the way she portrayed our city. Especially our court system and law enforcement. She hasn’t a clue. She seems to rely on white guilt, feminism and complete liberal thinking. She also makes the criminals seem like the victims. Never listening to a serial podcast again.

Season 3 the best so far!

An inside look of the intersection between race,power,an poverty in the justice system.
