Like millions of other story fans, I was addicted to Season 1 of the podcast Serial . I mean, I’ll pretty much listen to anything that Ira Glass tells me to. But once I heard the first few episodes, I waited anxiously for the following week’s download. For those of you who haven’t heard of this podcast here is the premise as stated on its website:

“Serial tells one story - a true story - over the course of an entire season. Each season, we'll follow a plot and characters wherever they take us. And we won’t know what happens at the end until we get there, not long before you get there with us.”
