So a couple of weeks ago, my cousin created a group chat on whatsapp titled ‘serial – the podcast’.
I have heard of podcasts but never listened to any, the thought of listening to something other than music on my ipod has never appealed to me so I didn’t particularly pay much attention to the chat.
Anyway I decided to give it a go (mainly because everyone in the chat wouldn’t stop talking about it).
I was hooked after the 1st episode!!
What’s it about:
Adnan Syed was 17 when he was arrested for the murder of his ex-girlfriend Hae Min Lee in 1999 in Baltimore, Maryland.
Adnan was convicted and sentenced to life plus thirty years. Till today he proves his innocence. Sarah Koenig a journalist picked this story up and set her investigation over 12 weeks via a podcast.
Want to know what happened? What did Sarah discover? Get listening! I promise you won’t be disappointed!
The entire podcast can be found on the below:
