Podcast recommendation: SERIAL Season 1

Tilbage i foråret 2015, da jeg besøgte mine veninder F og T i Argentina, anbefalede F mig at høre podcasten Serial. Hun var ret opslugt af den og jeg kan huske at hun hørte første sæson på vores 26 timers bustur (sjov historie iøvrigt) fra Buenos Aires til Esquel. Jeg fik af en eller anden grund aldrig hørt den på turen, for jeg ville åbenbart hellere læse, høre musik og se serier på min laptop. Det at høre podcasts var noget nyt for mig og dermed farligt åbenbart, haha. Her i LA kom jeg i tanke om den, fordi jeg så en reklame for den på en “Det sker i LA”-side og er nu begyndt at høre den. Jeg har nu hørt de første tre afsnit af første sæson og den har virkelig fanget mig.

Serial handler om mordet på Hae Min Lee, en populær high-school pige, der forsvinder i Baltimore i 1999. Nogle uger senere bliver hendes lig fundet og hendes klassekammerat og ekskæreste Adnan Syed bliver arresteret og kendt skyldig for mordet. Podcasten handler så om at en journalist 15 år senere forsøger at undersøge, hvad der i virkeligheden skete. Der er mange underlige detaljer ved sagen, som man har svært ved at få til at passe sammen. Først tænkte jeg: “hvor sindssygt at han har siddet inde halvdelen af sit liv for et mord han ikke har begået”, men senere tænkte jeg “han gjorde det måske alligevel”. Jeg skifter hele tiden mening, så jeg er virkelig spændt på at høre, hvordan den ender!

Jeg kender ikke så mange podcasts, så skriv endelig i kommentarfeltet, hvis I har nogle anbefalinger. Det behøver ikke at være om lignende emne, bare det er godt.

Back in spring 2015, while I was visiting my friends F and T in Argentina, F recommended this podcast called Serial. She really liked it and I remember she was also listening to it on our 26-hour bustrip (actually a pretty funny story) from Buenos Aires to Esquel. I do not really know why, but I never actually listened to it before now. Podcasts were something new for me, so I chose to do the things that I usually do while traveling: read a book, listen to music and watch tv-shows on my laptop. When I arrived to LA an advertisement on one of those “this is happening in LA”-sites reminded me of it. Now that I heard the first three episodes I am kind of intrigued by it.

Serial is about the murder of Have Min Lee, a popular high-school senior, who disappears in Baltimore in 1999. A few weeks after her disappearance her body is found in a park and her classmate and ex-boyfriend Adnan Syed is arrested and is found guilty of her murder. The podcast takes place 15 years later, when a journalist is trying to figure out what really happened. There is a lot of weird details about the case, that are hard to match. In the beginning I thought “how insane that he has been in jail half of his life for something he did not do”, but later on I began to think “maybe he really did it”. I keep switching sides, so I can not wait to hear how it ends!

If you have any podcast recommendations please comment below. It does not have to be about crime, it just has to be good. Thanks!
