So very interesting. I would love to hear an update from 2019 for the Adnan Syed case.

I am not the biggest fan of NPR, but I think Sarah Koenig and crew are doing an excellent job in the Serial series. I don’t buy every single thing I hear, but I’m ok with different ideas. That being said, I do not believe that even after 18 months of intense research, observations and...Read full review »

This last season (season3)was a much needed insight into our criminal justice system. It was an extremely emotional listen and I think more of Americans need to hear programs like this! I think there are so many county’s in this country that need this type of investigative reporting (lawrenceburg...Read full review »

I don’t even listen to podcasts, but the fact that I was drawn into all three seasons is amazing! Job well done!

Liked season 1, lost me at season 2, he committed treason. Season 3, lived near Cleveland for 14 years, the coverage again is a liberal bias. People have to be accountable for their behaviors, along with communities, legal profession and government. There is no accounting for community in...Read full review »

I finished every single episode and don’t know how I’m going to function at work anymore.
TheRealCarlaSantini via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/14/19
I have listened to the first season over and over again. It’s absolutely amazing. The research for these cases is so deep and so well written. I can’t say enough good things about Sarah’s recording. Season 2 wasn’t quite my style, but Season 3 was so interesting and a GREAT way to show the...Read full review »

I enjoyed 2.5 seasons, then you lost me in season 3 episode 6. The guy instigating the cop did me in. Rest seemed biased. Season 3 started as listening to court cases and then turned into a liberal cop bashing session. Turned one sided.
placman2 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/13/19
I am 13 years old and I can understand why you think she’s biased, but she rly is giving both sides of the story. For Aramis, she said both his story and the cops, and acted surprised because she had never heard of a bulge before.
happypridemonth via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/12/19
I found her points interesting but very biased. Her views and reports are very liberal. She seems way too empathetic for the enemy in season 2. Season 1 is excellent. I enjoyed that much more.
KatterKloot via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/12/19
One of the best podcasts I’ve ever listened to. Loved all 3 seasons, which were all very different and gripping stories. I’ve listened to each season multiple times. Thank you to the Serial team!
Kat S 81 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/11/19
Like a ton of listeners, I binged straight through season 1 after it came out and loved it. I'm also excited to learn that this case is back in the popular culture and it looks like Adnan Syed is getting another shot at seeing his case re-tried. I really wanted to like season 2, but the...Read full review »

Nothing special
shellrae via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/11/19
Absolutely fantastic. I love listening while I'm at work. So fascinating.
aljocanicas via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/10/19
You almost had me until episode 6 when we heard how Jessie and his friends were talking to the cops. I wonder how biased the rest of the episodes were. I’m starting to feel like we are really only hearing one side....
hou.church via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/09/19
Season 1 was absolutely outstanding. There were parts where it sounded like you had feelings for Adnan, but it didn’t take away from the journalism. By the end of Season 3, you completely embellish the facts to push your leftist agenda, and in doing so, create racism that further divides us as...Read full review »
The office jerk via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/09/19
First and foremost, Sarah is a storyteller. She is not a crime journalist, nor is she an investigator. However, to exclude all of the facts that clear Adnon’s name is atrocious. There are several inconsistencies that this series fails to point out. Although it did a good job setting the scene of...Read full review »

Please do more in Cleveland I got a lot of people to listen

One of the BEST👍🏻
mishrea via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/08/19
Really! What was the point in that whole season! It started exactly the same way it finished. I had my fears around epp 4 that this was just going to be a strung out load of babble and that’s exactly what I got in the end. They brought nothing new to the case except for a hell of a lot of...Read full review »
Closet reviewer via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 06/08/19
I enjoyed all seasons of Serial and this season in particular was especially disturbing. Criminal justice needs a drugs overhaul. The system seems set up to keep those in it once they are in it. The youthful offenders in particular seemed to not stand a chance. Piling suspended license upon...Read full review »

I wish to hear more from Adnan Syed story. Great audio, construction and pace. Keep it up! 🙌🏼
rangerking via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/07/19
I give credit to those you try, but no one does podcasting like the silver tongued Sarah. Smart, funny, eloquent, no matter the topic.
Discriminating via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 06/06/19
These stories are thought provoking but they’re very clearly liberally biased. I like thought provoking questions but every episode seems to spill over the limit of unbiased reporting. I see where the narrator is going to take the story after the first 3 minutes. It’s all anti police, anti...Read full review »

A Season 3 was about was the Liberals pushing their views. No one every talked about all the bad choices and decisions these people made.
Katmcm2012 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/04/19
As an in-depth look at how our criminal justice system works it is so fascinating and it doesn’t hide away from the crimes of the subjects or the injustice of the justice system. Season 1 was addictive and so was season 3. I find myself wishing there were more episodes.
bugsy_siegel via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/04/19
It amazes me that you can win an appeal to a new trial, once again defeat the state at a higher court, and then lose 4-3 at the highest court in the state. The odds are stacked against you the minute you are arrested. Then to win an appeal only to give the states two more cracks at it is...Read full review »
Tony from England via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 06/04/19
Season 1 was superb! Enthralling, entertaining, suspenseful... I hate that I can’t say as much for the other two seasons! Season 2 I would say was a fair shake towards the subject! However towards the end of the season the liberal leaning agenda begins too bleed through! By season 3 the social...Read full review »

I love the hard work you do an amazing job
Shearead via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/03/19
If there was a perfect starter podcast- this is it. While Serial has been described as a true crime podcast, it’s more a series about justice as told through three very unique perspectives. Sarah Koenig is an amazing storyteller and the journalism work here is incredible. I was frequently on the...Read full review »

Season 1 was amazing! Love Sarah’s voice!!
Amzyork via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 06/01/19
I read a lot of reviews that this podcast is agenda pushing and geared to liberals, and maybe it is. But overall it is thought provoking, no matter what side you are on. It takes a closer look from many angles to have you the listener come up with your own opinion. I was worried about how CLE...Read full review »

I’m usually terrible at listening to podcasts, as I get distracted by approximately anything going on (in and out of my head). This podcast is absolutely captivating and kept me awake until 2am Thank you very much
Cessaben via Apple Podcasts · France · 05/31/19
Season 1 was incredible, and for lack of a better work it was impossible to stop listening to it. Season 2-3 .... seemed biased and an agenda trying to be pushed. Please go back to the mystery and decisiveness of the first season.
Yckor via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/31/19
I could listen everyday to this.
shn67 via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 05/30/19
Incredible case for season 1. So much so that it was never going to be possible to beat it. So she/they didn’t. And I commend them for that. Not unlike a band whose first record was the most popular and it went mainstream. The transcendent bands continue to evolve and don’t care about popularity...Read full review »
Sean X A via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/30/19
I thought this was an excellent analysis and exploration of a specific case and it’s implications on the gulf between what the justice system aspires to be and what it actually is. It’s very disappointing that after supposedly listening to this podcast reviewers comment with the same venom toward...Read full review »

Season 2 and 3 quickly become a bully pulpit for liberal politics. All of the standard SOP’s of White Privilege, Xenophobia, Class Warfare etc. (Interestingly set in cities that have been completely owned by liberal politicians for the last hundred years). But season one is very entertaining.
Cloegail via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/28/19
Season 1: Interesting with the feeling that there was an attempt at genuine impartiality in order to determine facts of the situation and a look at both sides. Generally I feel this is due to being indecisive about the situation and, therefore, couldn’t proceed from a biased standpoint. Season...Read full review »

JJ🦹🏽‍♀️ via Apple Podcasts · Germany · 05/27/19
Well told, well structured but to no end other than listening to someone be blinded by the charm and subsequent love of a murderer. Aside from drifting off, what was the actual point in this cast?
Mar tutu via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 05/27/19
At episode six, and it’s just more and more enraging. How can such injustice continue with impunity? (Anyone giving bad ratings likely has an agenda...)
NE Steph in SoCal via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/26/19
Love the no frills approach to this podcast. The narrator is as good as they get and her voice is mesmerizing.
SMS3232 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/25/19
The podcast has no definite end and is a waste of time and brain power.
NerfShelly6969 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/24/19
Unremarkable in every way
689jhfr57ij via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/24/19
Listing to all (3) seasons has been mind blowing, addictive, and very informative. The presenters are very well spoken, in tune with the dialogue, their subjects, and relay the stories in an in-depth manner. You can tell there is a real sense of their commitment to the story and the truth...Read full review »

Sarah narrates it brilliantly. Very interesting podcast about Adnan. Why did Adnan leave his new phone which was just bought a few couple of days ago. Why did Adnan leave his car with Jay that day? If Jay was behind the murder, why would Adnan roam with Jay and appear at Cathy’s home that...Read full review »

I absolutely love this podcast! I have listened to all of season 1 and 2 and it’s absolutely remarkable to hear the things they uncover and discover as journalists. I feel the need to remark on some negative reviews. It’s not supposed to have an ending, it’s real life and they are giving you all...Read full review »
