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.
