    Serial podcast stories are added value information

    I have loved Serial Podcast for a long time. I just listened to the five episodes of Nice White Parents (NWP). NWP held Serial podcast standards of added value information. I was ignorant on the subject of diversity in the US public school system. I had no information on the dynamics of white parents and minorities, and a system that favors one over the other. The podcast was easy to listen to and follow. The story of the Brooklyn public school system was very interesting. I gave four stars instead of five stars simply because some of the information was just difficult to stomach as black American who unknowingly grew up in a similar situation. Minus the NWP that tried and wanted to make a difference. Thanks Serial podcast for telling the important and worthy stories.

    Political propaganda

    I really enjoyed the first few seasons! It got bought out by the man and now it seems to just be pushing political propaganda

    Tedious

    I am the perfect audience for this series. I believe the reporting, and I think the issue is a real one and an important one to shed light on. But the presentation is tedious, gets too much air time. I got frustrated toward the end. Not every series needs to be so many episodes.

    Loved season 1, season 2 interesting, skip the rest

    In 2014 I was hooked! I could see how Sarah was biased towards Adnan, but they did put together great investigation, fascinating podcast. Second season was interesting but harder to get through. Not as much of a “page-turner” as the first one. And then came ultra-liberal proganda. I am a liberal and I can’t listen to Serial any more. I know it’s the choice of podcast produces what to talk about. But you have turned away your core audience. I removed my Serial subscription a while ago. Five stars for the first season, 3 1/2 stars for the second. Zero stars for the rest.

    Listen led to season 1, took everyone else's advice and stopped there.

    Because I read the reviews of season 2 and beyond. I think Adnan is an interesting case. I wish that the interview with Jay had been recorded (He declined). But Sarah and her producer spoke about how adamantly Jay spoke of Adnan needing to step up and take responsibility. That he was very demonstrative I his responses to them...which made me think, doth thou protest too much?? In Episode 12, the friend of Jay talks about how freaked out Jay was and how he was known for making up some tall tales...it leads me to believe he may be hiding something. I'm not accusing him of anything, but his behavior sure makes you wonder....Additionally, I believe Adnan should get another trial for the I effective counsel. I don't think Ms. Gutierrez followed up on many things she should have.

    Don’t trust the racist reviews

    Season 1 is why the true crime genre is as popular as it is now. Don’t listen to racist reviews from people who can’t even spell, the story of Adnan Syed is one that needs to be heard. Jay basically got away with hurting a innocent girl and so here we are today . As for the other seasons they just have no real structure so I wouldn’t recommend them

    Can’t stand to listen anymore

    I really like the first season, although I did complain to the friend that recommended it to me that it was VERY obviously bias. It still liked how it was done though. After that it continued to get worse. I can’t even stand to listen anymore.

    The first pod I listened to - and one of the worst

    It's just bad. The first series especially. I expect a certain amount of bias and I generally can overlook it in either direction as long as I feel llike all of the information is presented at least somewhatmentioned and allow me to make up my own mind. When you leave things out or slant your reporting as egregiously as Serial does - it doess a disservice to your listeners. I expected to love it - I'm the target audience for this pod - white, liberal consistent contributer to NPR - but this is beyond the pale. It's sad that it gets a pass often because of being assocaited with This American Life.

    Not actual reporting

    The narrator decides in season one than a murderer is not guilty “because he is cute.” Obviously, the narrator cares nothing about the victim, the victim’s family, or actual justice. Don’t waste your time on this woke nonsense.

    Not great

    I’ve been listening to loads of true crime podcasts. People say Serial is great. I found it the worst I’d listened to, and I only listened to the first series. Confusing how the story is explained. No real hard evidence is gone through. I didn’t like the style in general. Just went on and on and don’t go anywhere. So many better podcasts that kept me hooked:

    Race Baiting

    If you are a leftist liberal who enjoys inciting race baiting, this is your podcast (I should have known given NYT affiliation). The sad thing is the stories could have been done objectively and they would have some value. #garbage_liberal_propoganda

    listen to series 1 to 3

    i loved series 1 to 3, didn’t bother listen to nice white parents, switched off after about 5 minutes. i genuinely have no idea what series 5 was about, it wasn’t about election fraud so wasted my time listening to that hoping there was an ending. what happened to this podcast, it used to be sooooo good?

    First ever review

    I was redirected here from my normal podcast Crime Junkies. While trying to catch up on all the episodes, the prequel to the Adnan Syed was said to be on this podcast. I’ve been HOOKED ever since. Thank you for all the time and detail you put into each episode, I’m definitely a new forever fan.
