Description

Serial is a 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.

Hard to have any sympathy for a guy (Joshua) who's committing armed robberies at age 16, but I think he got shafted by the Feds. Once they shook him down for intel on the gang, they knew he'd be targeted for being a snitch and the least they could have done is have him put in a juvenile facility away from his hometown and his former gang buddies. But hey, waddaya gonna do? 🤷‍♂️

So far his "want" to be like an WW2 soldier etc is right in line with him falling in love with the way the enemy were. His worldly view of wrongs not being righted or being allowed.... sounds alot like extreme muslims... still listening and open minded just the thought so far. He see s these fighters fighting against this over whelming enemy is "virtuous". I actually understand what he is saying. Did he allow himself to go to far with possibly admiring them? Love some serial such great unbiased reporting. We need more of this!

Jessie is responsible for his terrible choices. Coming to see his son high, going to court high, you can't blame that on institutional racism (which I don't deny exists), that is a fault of character. Wanna get high? Suffer the consequences that has on character. Play stupid games win stupid prizes. You can feel the cast cringe as they realize what a piece of shit they picked to serve as their everyman (Jessie) It's a shame too, I was totally rooting for him until this episode

Never realised what a joke the US justice system is. Good luck to you all. I'm tuning out.

jay damn well set Adnan up. I think it's weird how oddly specific he was when describing what happened that day. I think Jay had a thing for Hae and he made advances and she rejected him. He got pissed and strangled her.

Halfway through the series. So far I've got a strong impression that laws, verdicts and sentences are pretty much made up on the spot in Cleveland. How does anyone trust the criminal justice 'system' at all? 'Plea bargains' FFS! Makes me proud of what we have in the UK which isn't a phrase I use every day.

I laughed out loud at how she described drug court. My ex did drug court. it is NOT all rainbows and butterflies! Guys, just dont do drugs. Most people ended up getting out because of time served in the end. They couldn't handle drug court. I never saw it as an environment of support for people trying to get better. it was more like, youve been here for 3 months and you got sick and took cough syrup, what were you thinking, that's a violation, that'll be 30 days in jail and you're starting over from the beginning of the program when you get out. People would be in drug court for years trying to finish what should've been a 9 month program. Eventually all that time in jail over violations added up to the time they would've served without drug court and they were released. No one got better.

I don't get the charge of racism as the cause of the misbehavior of East Cleveland's police department. A black EC cop beats up a Black EC citizen and it is because of racism? Why?

Mh You can be racist against your own race. Racism is defined as people in positions of power asserting violence or using bias to disadvantage someone. You can both be racist and subject to others racism. It is not a novel concept.

I'm 28 and I can't remember everything I did the week prior on pretty much any given day lol. Human memory is associative; unless something traumatic or otherwise significant, our memory isn't likely to remember minute details.
