Season one is enthralling! Couldn’t get enough. Seasons two and three fall short, but Sarah is pleasant to listen to and does her homework!

I enjoyed season 1. Season 2 was ok. I only made it to episode 3 of season 3. This woman obviously is biased against police and the justice system. She has no idea how justice and law enforcement work. Time to unsubscribe. I’ve got lots of other podcasts to listen to.

I’d rate this series 5 stars except for the extremely annoying problem that the episodes don’t seem to want to play in any particular order. They jump around, sometimes going to previously played episodes or even a different season. Terrible when you are driving!

Not only are the stories engrossing but I find Sarah’s voice so soothing to listen to! Season 1 & 3 really have me questioning our country, society, police, & judicial system. They’ve brought a lot of injustices to light and I hope they continue to do so.

This new season with Sarah in the middle of everything just feels rough and uncomfortable. I’m Not feeling it. No other season can compare to Adnan.

Season 3 is very bingable. It made me furious tho.

Love this podcast.

Judge Gaul probably relates to the majority of Americans, however there are several horror stories within this podcast that should make everyone re-think their view of the Justice system....

I have to say that I thoroughly enjoy this series and hope for more. I really appreciate that the speaker tries their best to remain neutral and fair when discussing the topics. Politics rarely creeps in. You really feel like you’re getting the meat of the issue. It’s given me better...Read full review »

The first season of this podcast was AMAZING. It was all focused on one case, delved deep into detail, and kept things interesting. It really left me wanting more like it. Then it started to waver. The second season was ok, I liked it because I had interest in that case prior to listening and it...Read full review »

I enjoyed the first 2 seasons but not the rest. Listening to the host try to subtly interject identity politics just got old. If I want a political podcast there are plenty I choose from. This podcast lost its spark and intrigue.

Sarah Koenig’s research and storytelling is really the most gripping podcast I have listened to and will leave you wanting more and more!
Maglinti via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 02/11/19
Very thought provoking. Changed my mind every episode about 3 times at least.
NMc_rugby_lad via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 02/10/19
Listened to all three seasons, they’re all great, truly gripping, but the format of season three is genius. The hosts ask all the questions we’re thinking. Masterpiece of investigative journalism.
NatalieABZ via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 02/10/19
One of my all time faves. Season one had be binge listening. Have followed Adnan’s case since.
Loubaforster via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 02/10/19
I feel like I should rate higher because I am listening to it in 2019 vs. when it first comes out, but I just couldn’t get as into it as Up and Vanished. I just feel like it was a lot of going around in circles instead of learning anything new.
janzabelle via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/09/19
The first season was a very well delivered and very gripping story, Season two was also very compelling but the two stories just turn out to be something of a dead end. You just learn alot about these stories and niether deliver that Eureka moment you are hoping will come to solve the mystery...Read full review »
jah raven via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 02/08/19
Great job to the team. Truly engrossing story telling and an eloquent commentary that’s also brave enough to show the chaos. The show is beautifully produced and researched. There are times when the host seems to be exploitive of folks truly in need and seems to pose herself to victims and...Read full review »

Absolutely gripping; story telling at its best but also an insight into society handled in an incredibly skillful way.
Celîledeman via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 02/07/19
This is a great podcast! It’s a mix up every season. True crime to current events happening now. This is an informational podcast that doesn’t feel biased, just giving you the facts. I love the way it flows and it’s easy to follow.

The title says it all big homie!
jereb12 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/07/19
Season 1 was obviously phenomenal. Season 2 lived up to the high expectations, even if not quite as engrossing. Season 3 has such an important message and I’m so glad it’s being talked about, but it kind of feels out of character and I’m not sure this podcast was the best platform for a...Read full review »

Love this podcast. Thanks for the take away messages

Wasn’t into season 2 but season 3 has won me back Really interesting show
Hlwhit via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 02/06/19
Talking is just too fast
Kensadawn via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/06/19
Meh
It’s interesting initially, but they fail to explain certain aspects of the story. For example, Jay knew where the car was. This is undeniable even if his story about Adnan is false. But no one explains how he knew this if Adnan didn’t do it. I stopped listening after season 1. Got boring
Mustansir Taquee via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/05/19
This level of journalism and storytelling is best in class...hands down
Alexmcgrath via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/05/19
“A young black woman is holding a portable speaker. The white people in the elevator look at each other.” Yep, I assumed this podcast was more leftist trash. Not interested in your garbage.
Foeixjtngke via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/04/19
We are listening to this in my high school class for English and it has caught all my classmates attention. We all debate about this on who may be guilty or not. It’s great and very interesting I love it!!!
lizxxbeth via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/04/19
Season 1 is the best of the best but the next 2 are terrible. I still listened because I love Sarah’s voice and how she tells stories but not interesting cases. Sorry Sarah! Love you! Go back to the roots!
Garnet526 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/04/19
Gen Why is the first true crime podcast I’d ever listened to! I really enjoy the stories, but they’re a little dull. I do like the monotone voices sometimes, but after I listen to a few episodes I feel super depressed. Lol. So I would recommend this podcast, but I would say after an episode or...Read full review »

So good
Disssssssssssgussssted! via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/03/19
I love her storytelling style but I wish she would just tell the stories and leave out her opinions.
AmaAmericana via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/03/19
Ended up listening Series 1 in 3 days because I had to know more!!
Arthie93 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 01/31/19
While I like the first season, the third season reveals a very anti-police, anti-white slant that I find offputting. I know police officers in Cleveland and they say that they are sick of all the black crime and if they do anything forceful to detain a black criminal, they are under intense...Read full review »

I unfortunately agree. Cops tazed my boyfriend, once he was in car WITH cuffs on, but they made sure to turn off body cam, so it could not be brought up in court.
7MoUkno via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/30/19
Real stories about humans and dysfunctional systems. Systems that you can get sucked into by bad choices or bad luck, and once you are there - you are hard pressed to get out. The deck is stacked against you. Its hard to believe these stories take place in America. Thanks Sarah for telling...Read full review »

Love the level of reporting and style of the Serial podcasts. I’ve listened to all three series with the 3rd being my favourite. Such a human approach to journalism. Superb, can’t wait for 4!!!
Coleymac via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 01/29/19
This podcast is one of the most amazing podcast I have ever heard. It is engaging and shows so many sides of one story. As the podcast goes on it just gets better and better.
Apple App Rated via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/29/19
I have just finished listening to the third season of Serial and found myself shocked, angered and terrified on the day to day running of Clevelands police farce, court and prison systems. Broken is an understatement and it resonates throughout this podcast as you hear story after story of...Read full review »

I would recommend this podcast for anyone who is into crime podcasts. I’m hooked on this podcast!
crime_chick via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/27/19
I am so sucked into this series! Such relevant and poignant reporting. I LOVED seasons 1 and 2...but 3 really shines! Keep it up, but please give us more (preferably faster)
ylLoveJoy17 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/26/19
Probably the best one ever!
Photo editing app addict via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/26/19
Season 1 was gripping. I could not wait to get in the car to listen to the next episode. Unfortunately season 2 lost my attention half way in and I stopped listening. No doubt the series is produced brilliantly, I just didn’t find the content interesting and had no passion for the topics discussed.
Shynepo23 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 01/25/19
Great show with objective reporting of the topics... except for episode 5 of season 3. I don't think the narrator actually watched the video of the bus shooting incident. Clearly, this incident could have been avoided if those two men hadn't stepped off the bus to confront an old man who had...Read full review »

kenihen via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 01/24/19
Excellent podcast, format, research and presentation. Loved it, thoroughly entertaining! However, I did feel the narrator was slightly naive in her judgment of Adnan. She was very judgmental and almost sympathetic in regards to his meek appearance and docile demeanor as a 17 year old which...Read full review »
