Generally I have enjoyed Serial, although I didn’t really enjoy season 3.
Sarah Koenig is brilliant, empathic and engaging. Her humor and candid commentary is great. Note to CBS ..If Sixty Minutes has any openings...get on it!
This is painful. It’s sad because once you realize how truly boring this podcast is you’ve already wasted valuable time. Koenig is practically gushing over Sayed waiting for a conjugal visit. Any detail that shows he’s a “good man” is highlighted yet not corroborated with facts while a rumor of how heinous he can possibly be is left as untold because it’s unsubstantiated. Very biased reporting and this story could’ve been told in 3-4 episodes not the mind numbing 12. I 30 second’d through the last 4 episodes and have no desire to listen to the retrial. I don’t know if he’s innocent or guilty and this Podcast did him no favors. Let the participants in the story talk and stop rehashing the last episode into 3/4s of the next. Dr Death got it right and has spoiled me to expect that caliber of production.
Sara and the Serial team have done incredible work this season. It's informative and heartbreaking and told so wonderfully. Journalism at its best.
I was immediately taken by the first season (who wasn’t). I even enjoyed the second season even though reviews were mixed. But the third season falls flat a couple of episodes in, which is disappointing considering how long it took to make the season. The problem isn’t the storytelling. It’s still there. Sarah Koenig’s narrative style is distinct. The issue with this season is that it isn't linear. To many things going on, too many “characters” to keep track of, all without any sort of end goal. I think the strength of the past two seasons of Serial was the linear narrative, where Sarah would take this one massive issue, and dissect it bit by bit all in an effort to fully understand this massive issue. I’ll keep listening to this season. But I hope Sarah returns to form in the next one.
All Serial seasons have been good but season 3 was exceptional. Should be required listening for all Americans.
This is a great listen! Professional narrators
Sarah and team, What an amazing podcast! Season three has been just been wonderfully enlightening and superbly told. Probably my favorite season this far. Thank you!
An extremely well produced podcast shining a light on a part of our society that is often ignored. A special thanks to all who worked on this, especially those with the creative and intelligent vision to help us understand the system through the compelling stories. Everybody should listen to this. Thank you.
Love Sarah narrating. Do not love Emmanuel narrating. Sorry but he’s not engaging and makes me want to fall asleep.
This is an excellent podcast & so well put together that you don’t want the stories to end. One of my favourites 🤗
Season 3 - if this was a book, I would not be able to put it down! Very much an eye opener and leaves me feeling very grateful for where I live and raise my children (Australia). As a Mum there was some tough listening 😦. As far as Sarah goes she is an outstanding presenter - thoughtful and empathetic but also trying to look for answers, understand them and then explain. She could make cutting the grass with scissors sound intriguing.
Slenderman runs from Chuck Norris. Its also the reason why Slenderman has no eyes.....Chuck Norris roundhoused kicked his face.

Yeah she does don’t argue
The best documentary style podcast around.
Serial is uncovering all angles of injustices in the US crime, legal and policing systems. Riveting and educational. Incredible work!
A must listen for anyone. That's it. A must listen.
A great in depth look into mysterious situations. One of the best long listening pod casts.
This podcast set the standard for all investigative journalism. Simply brilliant.
Brilliant story-telling by Sarah Koenig. With great compassion, humanity and forensic skill she examines the goings-on in a single courthouse and reveals the everyday injustices of the American justice system. Gripping and vcompelling. GB
A fabulous third series delivered. I could listen to Sarah endlessly, both her and Emmanuel told stories and raised some hugely important issues. GB
This is by far my favourite podcast to listen to. The way it is presented and the research that is put into the content is unbelievably good. Sarah is an amazing presenter, she is clear and the right level of emotive. The subject they cover are so interesting. Can’t wait for the next series!!! GB
The best way to pay for a lovely moment is to enjoy it.
