381 The Serial Podcast – Stitcher Reviews – Disqus Comment System Plugin – And So Much More

serial-social-logoHave you heard of the podcast, SERIAL?
Serial (iTunes | Website) is a new 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, like This American Life, is a production of WBEZ Chicago.

Earlier this week, The Verge reported that Serial had broke the iTunes record for the fastest podcast to reach 5 millions downloads and streams.
