37 Episodes | First Released: Oct 3 '14 | 🇺🇸
Serial is a podcast from the creators of This American Life, hosted by Sarah Koenig. Serial unfolds one story - a true story - over the course of a whole season. The show follows the plot and characters wherever they lead, through many surprising twists and turns. Sarah won't know what happens at the end of the story until she gets there, not long before you get there with her. Each week she'll bring you the latest chapter, so it's important to listen in, starting with Episode 1. New episodes are released on Thursday mornings.

Serial is hosted by: Sarah Koenig

Back after years of taking a break

Thank you so much for the usual excellence in journalism that is the newest installment in collaboration with the NYT. I’ve come back to catch up with season two and three as well and am hooked again! Great work comforting the afflicted and afflicting the comfortable.

Very meh, required for school.

I was required to listen to this for English in school (why, idk) and I didn’t enjoy it very much. It was alright, but twelve episodes, each almost an hour, feels a bit drawn out. I also don’t enjoy how it use crackly audio of interviews or whatever and it makes it hard to focus or get drawn into the story.

Super excited

And to the “WOW” review-Perhaps they aren’t pandering. Perhaps they are still brilliant, still right on point and you are the one with blinders on. Just consider it.

Cannot stand Sarah

Her voice and demeanor are both boring and off-putting. I only listened to season 1 because of other podcasts and that HBO series. I cannot believe this is what the big deal was about, she sounds more like a gossipy child than a journalist.

Great work! Especially season 3

Wow I can’t believe people are uncomfortable with facing the truth described in season 3. It’s reality people and all you white people offended by it are blind and refuse to accept the racial division of privileges in this country. You are mad because she brought detailed examples of our justice system’s racial biased? If you are mad by this, you need to sincerely take a look at why this upsets and evaluate your priorities. I am waiting for her to tell more stories.

Another SJW Propaganda Piece

I used to love this podcast but it’s turned into a racist propaganda piece. ‘Nice White Parents’ is yet another way to teach hate and separation amongst Americans. This podcast is dangerous and irresponsible.

Wow

Well, as a white person, a mother and someone who really appreciates your previous work, all I can say is you’ve done a great job at already offending me from the jump. I think the message you are trying to get across is getting lost in your own personal narrative- or maybe that the narrative of that of your new partner The NY Times. You women have a big voice and you are all talented. I know you also have good intentions. Do better than this. Open eyes, don’t just pander time the ears that you already know will listen.

Welcome to identity politics

Cancelled my subscription to NYT as they don’t even pretend to be unbiased. After it’s marriage to Serial, and listening to the first episode of NWP, I fear this mindset has infiltrated. So sad to delete this garbage but I have more important things to do and think about. Bye.

Nice White Parents ❤️

So glad that you all will do a deep dive into the historical context of the education system and how and why we are where we are today in education. The simple fact that many are unsubscribing before listening despite your past work shows that the story needs to be told and that when one benefits from a system.....there will be willful ignorance and a resistance to learn.

Had to Leave

I liked the older episodes, listened to them back to back, but couldn’t stomach this latest. I understand journalists WANT to interject their own opinions and ideologies, but they shouldn’t. You made it political when it didn’t have to be, simply because “racial division” is the hot button word right now. It’s not a black issue. It’s not a white issue. It’s a class issue, poverty equals higher crime, and it’s being propagated by bad policy in inner cities that have been run under the same suppositions for 50 years. It isn’t working, and to just fall back on racism isn’t the answer. You lost a listener, because I can’t handle the social justice tag lines in every other statement.

Nice White Parents?

I can’t believe people are unsubscribing because you feel white people are being blamed for everything. The journalists are stating facts that show social injustice. As a white male in Ohio, it is truly eye opening that these things are really happening. The black defendants are not being portrayed as perfect citizens in the podcast so I don’t view this as white vs black. It’s raising much needed awareness to social injustice. Most of the defendants do break laws but most people living in poverty have this struggle. I have seen many white friends go down similar sinking holes for something as minor of unpaid child support. It does become a snow ball effect. NO human being deserves to be beaten, harassed, and abused for any reason and especially by people that are supposed to serve and protect.

No longer a fan,...sorry Sarah.

I won’t listen anymore because of your relationship with the New York Times. Their reporting is bias and unacceptable. So sorry to see this has happened. Best of luck.
