I don't see any particular spoilers here, just discussion of items that have come out that puzzle us.

I went down the podcast about podcast rabbit hole with the Slate one, which is also well done.  Kosmette has heard the a/v club and said it's not very good.  She has also gotten into the Reddit discussion, not sure I'm ready to deal with those loons

Loons? They pretty much solved the Boston Marathon bombing...

When do you all find time to listen to podcasts?

Had I not had a five hour drive last night, I have no clue when I would get to listen to these.

I listen to them on my drive to work. Smackie's recent pointing out of The Economist in podcast form has, as he predicted, changed my life.

Jay is def the main issue in this case. I just don't believe any of this "inconsistencies." Even that juror thought Jay went to jail - which jesus christ....

I've listened to most of them twice, each time I realize there is something I'm missing.

Julian - this will be perfect for your drive.

This is the reddit thread my friend had said I should read - but Im not ready for that rabbit hole yet. I think I'm going to wait until the entire season is over. http://www.reddit.com/r/serialpodcast/comments/2n3k65/everyone_seems_to_accept_adnans_foggy_memory_when/

I'm on the fence,the lack of physical evidence plus the possibility of additional people concern me.  I also think the next episode involving the lawyer will be very interesting...

Podcast?  No moving pictures with the story equals, yawn. Go back to the stone age, Marconi.

Now I'm getting addicted to Start-up, the guy from This American Life and Planet Money who is striking out with his own company to produce podcasts. It's following his progress to get his company up and running.  It like Serial is very well done..  Of course it will be interesting to see how in the wake of the success of Serial how investors will look at Alex Blumberg's Startup.

This guy is clearly guilty. Jay was clearly an accomplice after-the-fact if not a true co-conspirator.
