Which podcasts are you guys listening to?

My mainstays are The Nerdist and Slate's Hang Up and Listen. I listen to WTF, Sklarbro Country, You Made it Weird, The Rich Eisen Podcast from time to time (depending who the guests are).

The most recent one I've been listening to is 'We're Alive: A Story of Survival' which is a zombie/survival story acted out. Pretty cool. I've dabbled in 'Welcome to Night Vale' as well. Another I thought about listening to is 'The Thrilling Adventure Hour,' but I don't know if I have time to start from the beginning on that one.

I'm a fan of NPR. I'll listen to TED Radio hour, All Songs Considered, and This American Life. This Week in Tech is also good.

Hmm, I may be a nerd...

Anybody listen to 'Serial?' It just finished season 1 and sort of became a cultural phenomenon.

I also realize how much my podcast rotation has changed. I dropped Hang up and Listen. Men in Blazers is a go to, the Indoor Kids, Serial, The Short Corner w/ Paul Shirley and Justin Halpern, Nerdist (as always).

A couple weeks ago one of my old college roommates said something about Serial, so I checked it out. It's the only podcast I've ever listened to, and seems really good. I haven't listened to the finale yet today, but I think he's guilty.

I've heard Criminal is good. It's supposed to be similar.

I haven't heard of Criminal, I might have to check it out. Podcasts are by far my favorite media right now. On certain podcasts, you get to hear these long form interviews that have time to breathe. If you are into comedy, music, movies, Nerdist or WTF are the best to go. You can find old episodes of your favorite comedians or actors and just hear them talk candidly and openly about things you'd never hear them talk about elsewhere.

But I digress. I'll be interested to hear your take on the whole thing after you finished the first season of Serial. I've been dying to talk about it with someone else.

I'll probably listen to the last episode tomorrow at work. Didn't get a chance to today, but should be pretty open tomorrow.

Just finished it.

I think it's really hard to be convinced of guilt beyond a reasonable doubt when hearing a story in this format. So, pretty much by default, I'm not sure I could vote guilty if I was using the legal burden.

But, I think he's guilty for 2 reasons:

1. There's something about his demeanor that I just don't trust. That's a kinda thin reason to think somebody is guilty, but the status quo here is that he's been convicted. He reminds me of people I know, even friends, that I get along with, but take things with a grain of salt. I can't put my finger on exactly what it is, but there's something about him that reminds me of people like that. I wish I could be more specific, but not sure how to be. And, while that's thin, it's pretty much a he-said/he-said. When you distrust one of the "he's" it pushes you to the other side. I don't necessarily trust Jay either though, so I dunno.

2. The distrust makes me lean toward thinking he's guilty. What really pushes me more than just kinda leaning that way is something they touched on in the last episode. If he's innocent, he's the unluckiest guy in the world. It's really convenient to not have a memory of the specific time in question, especially when the person pointing the finger at you has at least some corroboration to his story. The butt dial thing is really thin, especially with a 1999 phone. I don't recall butt dialing people until I had a smart phone.

The DNA evidence could be interesting. It seems to maybe open a door for him. I guess it gives me some hope that he's innocent (which I guess I hope is true). But, that seems unlikely to go anywhere. Can't say for certain, but I think he's guilty.

Somebody from Deadspin (or one of their 9 million spinoff sites) doesn't like Serial:
