Speaking of Serial
This is a podcast about a podcast. Listen along with us as reporters from Boise State Public Radio and the Idaho Statesman sit down to talk about Serial, the wildly popular This American Life podcast, which focused its second season on a story many of you in Idaho are already familiar with: the story of Army Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl.
Bergdahl (a native of Hailey, Idaho) walked away from his unit in Afghanistan in 2009 and was captured, marking five birthdays in captivity before his release. Now, He faces a full military court-martial.
In our episodes we discuss Bergdahl's case, Serial's reporting and what happens when an Idahoan becomes the center of international news.
