The Best Podcasts To Kill Time Before Serial 2

We won't bother trying to tell you how great Serial was.

Everyone in the office probably told you about the horizon-shifting podcast when it aired back in October 2014. Even Keith from accounts, and he never likes anything.

If the title of this list has caught your attention, you're probably nibbling at your earphones in anticipation of the second series of Serial, set to arrive later this year.

Rather than have you hit replay on the original show for the umpteeth time, podcast hub Acast's director of content Adam Martin has assembled seven exceptional podcasts that'll itch your audio narrative scratch.

Plug in, hit play and find a new obsession.
