Serial, a weekly podcast from the creators of This American Life, began with its first episode in early October, but it wasn’t until several weeks into the show’s run that its popularity began to really pick up. The show follows one murder case over the course of the season, which is, so far, 10 episodes in the making about the murder of Hae Min Lee, a high school girl killed in 1999. Her ex-boyfriend, Adnan Syed, was charged and is currently serving his life sentence.
After a break at Thanksgiving (new episodes come out on Thursdays), the much-anticipated 10th episode of Serial became available today. It’s being called one of the most popular podcasts ever.
