Remember When has always been about the odd tangents, so for our first episode of 2015, we're taking on a new piece of media.
Podcasts have been in a renewed spotlight over the past four months as a result of the success of Serial, a new show from the team behind This American Life. Serial is the documented review of the murder trial against Adnan Syed, accused of murdering his ex-girlfriend in 1999. This investigation is filled with drama, corruption, lies, suspicion, and so many incredible stories that it's hard to believe it's all true.
But this 15 year old murder is not only a true story, but is reported on so fascinatingly and in such minute detail that we've been captivated by Sarah Koenig and the stories she has to share.
Parris and Jay recap their learnings from the Serial podcast, who they think committed the murder, and talk about their stance on Adnan's claimed innocence. We're pretty sure the Mail Kimp girl did it.
Not a fan of Serial? Don't worry, we're not going to leave out without a movie discussion. November and December had some HUGE trailer releases, and we're going to talk about them. We also give you some initial details on our FIRST REMEMBER WHEN MEETUP! Coming to Seattle in December 2015. Know any good movies coming out then?
