To Be Suspected
New information is coming in about what maybe didn’t happen on January 13, 1999. And while Adnan’s memory of that day is foggy at best, he does remember what happened next: being questioned, being arrested and, a little more than a year later, being sentenced to life in prison.

When we started the first season of Serial, it was as an experiment and largely funded by This American Life. But now we’d like to make Serial a show that can stand on its own. To do that, we need your help — underwriting announcements from MailChimp and others don't fully cover the costs of production. We want to continue doing in-depth reporting, following stories wherever they take us. If you like the show, and you want another season — a different story — please donate. And: we’re only asking this once. We won’t pester you with splash pages after this week. If you want to help us make a second season of Serial, act now. Thanks for your support.
PS: You can also donate via text. Just text the word Serial to the number 25383.
That'll add a $10 donation to your phone bill. Message and data rates may apply.
Serial is a podcast where we unfold one nonfiction story, week by week, over the course of a season. We'll stay with each story for as long as it takes to get to the bottom of it.
We'll release new episodes every Thursday morning. Listeners can subscribe for free to the Serial podcast on iTunes and other audio platforms, and can also listen here on this site. Serial, like This American Life, is a production of WBEZ Chicago, which also produces these podcasts.
