The podcast Serial has been entrancing audiences since it first launched in 2014, and as of this writing, it is the most popular podcast of all time. Each season of this innovative podcast tells a different story from the criminal justice system, and one of the many things that sets Serial apart is the way it lets listeners in on the process of investigative journalism. In its groundbreaking first season, which netted Serial the first Peabody award ever given to a podcast, the show investigated the murder conviction of Adnan Syed, while the second season focused on the case of Bowe Bergdahl, who was dishonorably discharged from the US Army. Serial's third season, which just launched in September 2018, will examine the criminal court proceedings of Cleveland, Ohio. A spinoff of National Public Radio's This American Life, Serial is produced in collaboration with WBEZ Chicago and hosted by Sarah Koenig. Those interested may listen to Serial on the podcast's website, via Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Pandora, or on many other podcast platforms. The Serial website offers ample supplementary content for each episode, so it is well worth exploring.
