The Date and Serial

I’m completely enthralled by a web series called The Date. Filmed in Toronto, the series of short web videos follows a couple from their first meeting through subsequent anniversaries and the eventual (and so realistic that it was almost uncomfortable to watch) dissolution of their relationship.

You can check out the trailer below and the full series here.

Also, I am borderline obsessed with the Serial podcast from This American Life. If you haven’t heard about it, the podcast – the brainchild of the incomparable Sarah Koenig – delves into a 15 year old murder case that ended with Adnan Syed in prison for the murder of his ex-girlfriend Hae Min Lee. I find myself trying to find ways to bring it up in conversation with people all the time. I’ve had heated debates on whether Adnan is guilty or not, and if not then who killed Hae Min Lee? In particular, I have some very strong opinions on another ‘player’ in the case named Jay. Here’s a handy ‘Who, What, When‘ of the investigation, if you’re so inclined.
