Serial podcast returns minus Mail Chimp!


    Suddenly last week a new episode of the Serial podcast showed up on my ITunes podcast list.  I followed the Serial podcast last year and found the in depth look at one story, played out over a series of weeks, an enjoyable way to look at one story.  That podcast created a new form of journalism.
     This Serial podcast follows the story of Bowe Bergdahl who was captured by the Taliban 5 years ago and released earlier this year.  The question about why he left his platoon has had many theories.  In the podcast Bergdahl gives his own explanation.

     As the title of this podcast indicates this series doesn't have the Mail Chimp sponsorship.  With the number of downloads of the last Serial story being so successful I am sure they had many new sponsors wanting to sponsor the new series.  CVS apparently won out.

P.S. 1
    One way to get a Wikipedia page.

P.S. 2
   Update! Mail Chimp was back on episode 2.
