Serial was probably the most anticipated podcast launch this season. When I first heard the trailer though, I was skeptical. A show that is known for its serialized storytelling was ditching the playbook and taking on a subject no less complex than the US criminal justice system. It seemed off brand and I was concerned about how the series could engage listeners. But then the episodes dropped.

Episodes 1 and 2 provide an addictive fly-on-the-wall perspective and go behind the scenes in real cases. We hear about how the whims of judges impact defendants and begin to get a sense of the invisible forces influencing the justice system. Though there's not one specific story to draw you into the next episode, I'm anticipating where the next revelations will take us.
