Yes, you read that right. Podcasts are making a comeback, thanks to Serial. Or maybe podcasts are finally becoming mainstream, thanks to Serial. I’m not sure. All I know is that I’ve never opened the default podcast app on my iPhone until last night, and I’ve already listened to well over three hours of content. All because of Serial.
If you’re unfamiliar, Serial is the story of a real-life murder of a Maryland high school student that happened over 15 years ago. It’s told week by week by reporter Sarah Koenig and it’s utterly fascinating. Not convinced? Just check out what journalists at The New York Times or Rolling Stone or The New Yorker are saying.
