so i have been hearing about this podcast,serial, for months now from friends. i'm embarrassed that it's taken me this long to listen to the first podcast. the act of listening to was very traditional, in the sense that, it was me on the couch with my phone plugged into some speakers. it's funny how less than a century ago the radio was the only broadcast entertainment in a household. like folks back then, i quickly became engrossed by sarah koenig's voice laying out a murder case from 1999. i desperately wanted to binge cast (not sure that's a word) but sleep was calling.
