    Serial is back. This time the podcast examines the case of a Bowe Bergdahl - the soldier who left his base in Iraq unarmed and was supposedly held prisoner by the Taliban for five years. I'm downloading the first episode but won't be able to listen for a while. Anyone listen yet?

    It will be interesting to see if I still have a red hot hatred for him after listening to the podcast.

    Nope.

    I'm
    Still keeping up with Adnan's case by listens to Undisclosed and the other podcast by that Ruff guy is up next. But I'll dl the second season of serial for when I'm done with these.

    Can anyone explain WHY Jay lied, if he did?

    I'm curious as well. He was young and who knows how fucked in the head one gets out there in the desert during battle? I think his goose is cooked. He ran off to the enemy. Unbelievable. I doubt he can say much as he has pending litigation.
    Who knows? That whole case fucked with my head. In the end, why would anyone else kill that girl? Too much bullshit from Adnan plus a girl only he would have a reason to want to kill ended up dead. The goofy details do nothing to change those facts.

    I think the new boyfriend with the funny name (Rod?) may have done it. She was one clingy chick, all "ooooohhh diary I LOVE HIM!" After only 2 weeks.

    But it all comes down to one thing: why was jay lying? And I think he was. Did you listen to Undisclosed? They are most definitely biased, but it seems very clear the police told Jay what his story was to be. Why?

    To support evidence? And why would Rod kill her after only two weeks? Clingy is one thing, but it takes more than two weeks for murder to be the way out. I haven't listened to Undisclosed. I had enough of that case. I guess the judge reopened the case a few months ago, so I'm sure it isn't the last we've heard of it.

    Yeah Christina Guiterrez messed up Adnan's case badly. Really badly. She was handling 6 capital
    Murder cases at the same time and never even contacted an alibi witness. So I think they got it re-opened due to her overall crappiness

    Yeah I'm going to pass

    After the first season went back and read the actual case and decided that podcast was filled with complete holes and left out a huge amounts of facts that didn't help her agenda.

    Case wasn't reopened, They are allowing Syed to appeal the verdict. Which here in Maryland happens all the time.

    From which part of Maryland do you hail? My friends moved to Hagerstown. We visited them a few years ago. We went and ate at some place in Frederick. I really liked that little town.

    Baltimore County Pikesville area, About 30-40 mins away from Hagerstown and a hour from Frederick. Those are great parts of the state really nice people very laid back area and friendly. Only problem with those areas is your so far away from the city or really anything. And as a sports fan who goes to Ravens & Orioles games that just a hike and a half from Hagerstown or Frederick.

    I liked the hills around Hagerstown. Reminded me of growing up in Colorado. It did feel rather isolated though. I've always lived close to a city, but on the outskirts. In Boulder, we lived in a sub that was surrounded by farmland. But it was only 15 mins to downtown Boulder. In Michigan, I live in the northern suburbs. Everything south of me is suburban city life, but my town is more rural. Lots of horse farms here. 40 mins to downtown Detroit.

    Maryland seems like a tale of two states and is similar to Pennsylvania. The east is densely populated with an East Coast feel while the western part feels entirely different.

    The bottom line from the first season is NO ONE was being completely honest.

    Thanks for the heads up. I recently re-listened to season one and enjoyed it - but I did get pissed that the show (Serial) had little/no consideration for the poor girl who died. Sarah Koenig seemed more interested in trying every way possible to give Anand and out - without paying any respect to the dead girl or her family.

    I will be listening to the new season. Thanks
