The creators of This American Life have started a new podcast, Serial. Rather than an isolated theme per episode, Serial follows a story throughout an entire season. The producers follow the characters and reveal the plot in a series of episodes, revealing new twists and turns. The cadence and tone is similar to This American life, with cliffhangers and moody music. This first season is about a 1999 murder between two high school sweethearts. I’m already hooked.
