Someone Else Telling You About Serial






Despite William Fowler's tweet (very funny sir), I am about to do exactly that. For those who haven't come across it, Serial is a podcast from the creators of This American Life. Hosted by Sarah Koenig, it tells the true story of a journalist's investigation into the 2000 trial and conviction of the then 18-year-old Adnan Syed for the murder of his former girlfriend Hae Lee. The series is up to episode nine (the tenth is out tomorrow) and is pretty addictive, compelling listening once you get into it.

You can find out more, and listen to all of the episodes to date, here.

  2. Well there you go, cheers George, it's a small world. If nothing else, it's taught me I've been pronouncing Koenig incorrectly for the last 18 years.
