    It's the podcast EVERYONE'S TALKING ABOUT don't you know

    Real life murder conviction reexamined by a very soothing reporter week by week, revealing the evidence gradually. Really quite FAB.

    Adnan in me now. I'll settle for Jay.

    I downloaded the first episode today but haven't gotten around to wistening to it. It is literally the podcast no one will shut up about.

    This is very addictive, I finished the first seven episodes in the last 24 hours. Only one more before I get caught up.

    So what do you think dub, did he do it?

    I'm now convinced they Adnan and Jay did it together, which makes Adnan's continuous denials disturbing.

    Because he keeps saying he didn't do it yet fails to explain any of his actions on the day other than being stoned. Jay has to be implicated because he knew where her car was. So I think they both killed her and then Jay went to the police first.

    I am HOOKED on this. I've spent all week catching up, and will listen to this week's episode today. I don't know what I'll do now I have to wait a week between each one.

    I just DO NOT KNOW. As of right now I think I'm leaning towards that he DIDN'T do it. Because the state's case just falls apart when you try to follow their timeline. But now that bitch has turned up saying Hae MIGHT have been at the game after her time of death...WHO KNOWS?

    I don't trust those witnesses who came out after the show started.

    On the other hand the lawyer seems to be a bit of a cliché, I can imagine her being played by Drea De Matteo with a cigarette in her hand, a power suit and a cough.

    The lawyer is fabulous :D That voice! Imagine having to listen to it day in day out at court. Through TWO trials!

    I mean obviously all murder cases are interesting, but I've found myself less than gripped so far. If I sit through another 10 episodes and it turns out the ex-boyfriend with the ridiculously shaky alibi actually did do it after all I'm going to feel a little aggrieved.

    Maybe I need to start listening to it on public transport or something.

    A solid "it turns out" ending is unlikely. If you're not gripped by now, I really don't see it happening at all.

    Did anyone else feel sorry for the two sets of jurors?

    I can't imagine putting up with Christina's voice for weeks on end. Was it affected by illness (the MS?) or did she always speak like that in court?

    Reddit chatter suggests the MS played a part. But yeah, she really was quite unbearable to listen to RIP

    I fear next week's character assassination of Adnan will only make me more :horny:

    Last episode next week. Not expecting anything earth-shattering, although there were some quotes teased in early episodes that we haven't heard yet. And there's still that hearing thing to come in Jan.

    I did not expect her to say next week is the final episode. I also don't think we'll get much, it's a shame they were never able to talk to Jay.

    :D!

    I can't believe it's over now. This was the first one I had to wait for and it was torturous. I wonder how long it will take them to make series 2.

    I'm not fully caught up yet, but I tend to belive that it wasn't premeditated murder, but he did kill her and he called Jay to help cover it up. I think he asked her for a lift home (despite going to track) so he could confront her about her new relationship, but didn't intend on going straight in for the kill. I'd imagine they argued and he killed her in the heat of the moment.

    He never sounds even remotely convincing when expressing his innoncence.

    Well that was a nice way to tie it up, I guess we'll find out more in the coming year if they get that DNA testing. Otherwise the more plausible reality is that Jay and Adnan did it and Jay got away because he ratted him.
