One Podcast I give a double thumbs-up is Serial. In case you don’t know, Serial is a pop cultural phenomenon, having broken records as the fastest podcast ever (reaching 5 million downloads at Apple’s iTunes store). David Carr in The New York Times called Serial “Podcasting’s first breakout hit.” and The Guardian characterized it as a “new genre of audio storytelling.” They’re all correct — it’s riveting!

Serial is the fascinating and true journey into the 1999 murder of Baltimore High School student Hae Min Lee and the trial and subsequent incarceration of her boyfriend Adnan Syed.
