iTunes has announced their picks for the best podcasts of 2014 and their pick for the best new podcast is Serial Podcast. Here's a little bit about this compelling podcast that everyone is talking about. As one of the main creative forces behind NPR's radio program "This American Life", journalist Sarah Koenig has worked for decades bringing the the every day stories of real people to the level of an art form. Starting as a This American Life spinoff, Koenig and fellow producer Julie Snyder created the Serial Podcast as a means to tell one true life story over the course of several episodes. Each episode ends on something like a cliff-hanger and given the real-life nature of what is explored, the ending is unpredictable. In the inaugural season, listeners have been enthralled by the murder case of Adnan Syed who was accused and sent to prison for the death of his girlfriend Have Min Lee in 1999. With this true-crime story that dissects young love, murder and the criminal justice system, Koenig and Snyder parcel out new details with each episode in a winning formula that flows like a page-turner. The podcast is updated weekly and there's still enough time to binge-listen so you can get caught up before the mystery is resolved. Start listening today!

  • S02 Episode 01: DUSTWUN
    Thu, Dec 10, 2015


    In the middle of the night, Pfc. Bowe Bergdahl grabs a notebook, snacks, water, some cash. Then he quietly slips off a remote U.S. Army outpost in eastern Afghanistan and into the dark, open desert. About 20 minutes later, it occurs to him: he’s in over his head. 

  • S01 Episode 12: What We Know
    Thu, Dec 18, 2014


    On January 13, 1999, Adnan Syed was a hurt and vengeful ex-boyfriend who carried out a premeditated murder. Or he was a bewildered bystander, framed for a crime he could never have committed. After 15 months of reporting, we take out everything we’ve got - interviews and documents and police reports - we shake it all out, and we see what sticks.

  • S01 Episode 11: Rumors
    Thu, Dec 11, 2014


    Almost everyone describes the 17-year-old Adnan the same way: good kid, helpful at the mosque, respectful to his elders. But a couple of months ago, Sarah started getting phone calls from people who knew Adnan back then, and told her stories of a different kind of boy.

  • S01 Episode 10: The Best Defense is a Good Defense
    Thu, Dec 04, 2014


    Adnan’s trial lawyer was M. Cristina Gutierrez, a renowned defense attorney in Maryland – tough and savvy and smart. Other lawyers said she was exactly the kind of person you’d want defending you on a first-degree murder charge. But Adnan was convicted, and a year later, Gutierrez was disbarred. What happened? 

  • S01 Episode 09: To Be Suspected
    Thu, Nov 20, 2014


    New information is coming in about what maybe didn’t happen on January 13, 1999.  And while Adnan’s memory of that day is foggy at best, he does remember what happened next: being questioned, being arrested and, a little more than a year later, being sentenced to life in prison.

  • S01 Episode 08: The Deal with Jay
    Thu, Nov 13, 2014


    The state’s case against Adnan Syed hinged on Jay’s credibility; he was their star witness and also, because of his changing statements to police, their chief liability. Naturally, Adnan’s lawyer tried hard to make Jay look untrustworthy at trial. So, how did the jurors make sense of Jay? For that matter, how did the cops make sense of Jay? How are we supposed to make sense of Jay?

  • S01 Episode 07: The Opposite of the Prosecution
    Thu, Nov 06, 2014


    Adnan told Sarah about a case in Virginia that had striking similarities to his own: one key witness, incriminating cell phone records, young people, drugs - and a defendant who has always maintained his innocence. Sarah called up one of the defense attorneys on that case to see if she could offer any insight into Adnan’s case, and got much more than she bargained for.

  • S01 Episode 06: The Case Against Adnan Syed
    Thu, Oct 30, 2014


    The physical evidence against Adnan Syed was scant - a few underwhelming fingerprints. So aside from cell records, what did the prosecutors bring to the jury, to shore up Jay's testimony? Sarah weighs all the other circumstantial evidence they had against Adnan, including curious behavior, a disconcerting note, and an unexplained mid-afternoon phone call.

  • S01 Episode 05: Route Talk
    Thu, Oct 23, 2014


    Adnan once issued a challenge to Sarah. He told her to test the state’s timeline of the murder by driving from Woodlawn High School to Best Buy in 21 minutes. It can’t be done, he said. So Sarah and Dana take up the challenge, and raise him one: They try to recreate the entire route that Jay said he and Adnan took on January 13th, 1999. 

  • S01 Episode 04: Inconsistencies
    Thu, Oct 16, 2014


    A few days after Hae’s body is found, the detectives get a lead that opens the case up for them. They find Jay at work late one night and bring him down to Homicide. At first, he insists he doesn’t know anything about the murder. But eventually he comes clean. He tells them what happened on January 13th. A few weeks later, he’s back at Homicide and his story has changed. In some ways, these changes are small and understandable. In other ways, they’re big and confounding.

  • S01 Episode 03: Leakin Park
    Thu, Oct 09, 2014


    It’s February 9, 1999. Hae has been missing for three weeks. A man on his lunch break pulls off a road to pee, and stumbles on her body in a city forest. His odd recounting of the discovery makes Detectives Ritz and MacGillivary suspicious. For instance, why did he walk so far into the woods - 127 feet - to relieve himself? And that’s just the start. A look into the man’s past reveals some bizarre behavior.

  • S01 Episode 02: The Breakup
    Fri, Oct 03, 2014


    Their relationship began like a storybook high-school romance: a prom date, love notes, sneaking off to be alone. But unlike other kids at school, they had to keep their dating secret, because their parents disapproved. Both of them, but especially Adnan, were under special pressure at home, and the stress of that spilled over into their relationship. Eventually Hae broke up with Adnan. And then, depending on who you ask, Adnan was either understandably sad and moping around, or full of rage and plotting to kill her.

  • S01 Episode 01: The Alibi
    Fri, Oct 03, 2014


    It's Baltimore, 1999. Hae Min Lee, a popular high-school senior, disappears after school one day. Six weeks later detectives arrest her classmate and ex-boyfriend, Adnan Syed, for her murder. He says he's innocent - though he can't exactly remember what he was doing on that January afternoon. But someone can. A classmate at Woodlawn High School says she knows where Adnan was. The trouble is, she’s nowhere to be found.
