From the creators of The American Life and hosted by Sarah Koenig, the popular podcast Serial began last year. Telling a true story surrounding a murder case that was reopened many years later, each engaging episode took listeners through quite a journey.
In the middle of the night, Pfc. Bowe Bergdahl grabs a notebook, snacks, water, some cash. Then he quietly slips off a remote U.S. Army outpost in eastern Afghanistan and into the dark, open desert. About 20 minutes later, it occurs to him: he’s in over his head.

The Serial website goes a little further with its description of the entire second season:
For this season, Sarah Koenig teams up with filmmaker Mark Boal and Page 1 to find out why one idiosyncratic guy decided to walk away, into Afghanistan, and how the consequences of that decision have spun out wider and wider. It’s a story that has played out in unexpected ways from the start. And it’s a story that’s still going on.
You can still listen to the season one episodes of Serial, with 12 total available. And, for those of you who already have and are ready for another compelling true story, head over to iTunes to check out the first episode of season two.
