The terrifying reality of the American legal system.

I have just finished listening to the third season of Serial and found myself shocked, angered and terrified on the day to day running of Clevelands police farce, court and prison systems. Broken is an understatement and it resonates throughout this podcast as you hear story after story of often the poorest people in society treated horrendously by the law enforcement community who hand down un deserved beatings, which go un punished, Judges that dish out sentences that vastly out-way the crime and a system that protects and rewards brutality on and off the street by its police force. And to hear the system believes its one of the best in the world is hilarious! Great listening, even though it’s completely disturbing.

Don’t bother

12 hours of my life I’ll never get back. Season 1 goes absolutely nowhere. Nothing happens. Complete garbage.

Disappointment

What an enormous disappointment this podcast was. I had heard so much about Serial and I was looking forward to it. It goes round the houses for 13 episodes and lands nowhere. We don't even have a proper final interaction between the subject and the journalist. It just fizzled out. Don't waste your time...
