The second season of 'Serial' is here

The podcast will cover the abduction of soldier Bowe Bergdahl in Afganistan in 2009.

Serial began life as an understated NPR show about an obscure murder case and quickly became the hottest podcast in the world. After almost a year of silence, Sarah Koenig is back with a brand-new run of episodes. This time around, the show will focus on the abduction of soldier Bowe Bergdahl in 2009 and his subsequent return as part of a prisoner exchange. At the time of publication, the sheer volume of demand for the first episode -- DUSTWUN -- has forced the Serial website to fall over. If, however, you're a Pandora subscriber you should be able to access it there thanks to an exclusive deal that was signed back in November.
