Just finished up listening to Episode 11 of the Serial podcast. The final episode, Episode 12, releases this Thursday (12/18). At this point, I am not sure if Adnan is guilty or not. His friend Jay comes across as a much more believable suspect in the case. Either way, I am convinced that there is more to this murder. Someone hasn’t told the full story.
What is odd about listening to this podcast is that it isn’t a work of fiction. This was a real case. A girl died. Innocent or guilty, Adnan’s life changed forever due to this event. As Sarah Koenig presents the case, I find myself judging Adnan. There is something disconcerting about passing judgement on a person I do not know. But I do this all the time.
Thursday is right around the corner. Have you been listening to Serial? Let me know what you think in the comments.
