Not the best
The commentators are more interested in themselves than the actual story.
The best Serial podcast
Compared to Slate's and A.V. Club's Serial coverage, this one is clearly superior. The hosts are entertaining, yet respectful of the people involved. They have great chemistry and lots of passion for the show. Each woman has an interesting perspective that enriches the conversation. Sure, they go off on silly tangents sometimes, but it doesn't detract from the podcast much. They don't cover the online, non-podcast stuff in much detail (at least not yet).
Great show! Where are podcasts 3-6?! Please add!
