This season of Serial is the most important season.  I hope everyone listens to it.  Stuff I wish everyone could know about the US "justice" system.

I'll have to give that a shot. The failings of the US criminal justice system is a topic I'm drawn to, like these docs:

Murder on a Sunday Morning
Strong Island
The Staircase
After Innocence
Gideon's Army
13th
The Thin Blue Line
The Central Park Five
Into the Abyss
Switchboard

Yes ! Just listened to the first two, it feels like a lost season of The Wire (I always thought a deeper exploration of the justice system was the one thing that show didn't get to and probably would have if given enough seasons). Maybe that's overhyping it, but I agree it has the potential to be Serial's best season, evne if it has no chance of being as iconic as season 1.


Side note for listeners of U Talkin' U 2 To Me/REM Re:Me => Paul Scheer and Amy Nicholson's new-ish podcast which is called Unspooled and has them go through the AFI 100 is basically a straight-faced version of I Love Films. If you listen to it that way, it's very funny (otherwise it's quite uninteresting I'm afraid).

I like Unspooled, especially some of the interviews they do.  I wish Amy would keep The Canon going, though.

The interviews can be pretty interesting, true.

This season of Serial has been insane. They keep topping themselves with every episode.

I was trying to reduce my Podcast dependency and use that time to read and some self-studying, but now I have to listen to this. Season 1 was great but I didn't get into season 2 and was holding off on season 3

Snapping ? What does that mean ?
