Serial: Episode 12

Note: If you have not listened to Season One of Serial, I encourage you to do so before reading this. If you have not listened to Episode 12 yet, I encourage you to click away, listen, and come back. Ye be warned!

I would like to thank Sarah Koenig for not tying Adnan Syed’s story into a perfect bow. There are too many questions in his case, avenues that give the listener pause. Did Adnan Syed kill Hae Min Lee? I have no idea. Adnan’s silence makes me think he is guilty, but again, I think his story is far more nuanced than that.

Overall, I enjoyed listening to Season One of Serial. The concept of an on-going investigation/story is neat. I especially liked the words Episode 12 ended with:

“Just tell me the facts, ma’am. Because we didn’t have them fifteen years ago, and we still don’t have them now.”
