Sucked into Serial


Serial is the most downloaded podcast ever – 68 million and counting. Today I thought I’d see what all the fuss was about – and listened to 3 episodes on the trot. It’s compelling stuff. An investigation into the murder of an 18 year old girl in 1999 – told through dozens of voices that were involved in the case, it takes in teen love, high school proms, betrayal, lies, the quest for justice and, most of all, incredible storytelling that really drew me in to podcasts as a medium. All while I walked round Pendennis Point too – can’t beat that for a combination!

(Best to download from ITunes so you can listen while you’re doing other stuff, but the video option worked better as an embed here)
