Zach Sherwin’s Serial Rap Sums Up How We’re All Feeling About The Podcast
Rapping comedian Zach Sherwin released a rap about Serial over the show’s theme song yesterday, just in time for the show’s finale on Thursday. (It’s a great idea — the song makes for an awesome beat!) Sherwin addresses most of the conversations that have surrounded the podcast: The exploitation of Hae Min Lee’s death for entertainment, how much more informed host Sarah Koenig has been than the audience and what her strategy has been in releasing the information she has, and the fact that the show has barely touched the issue of race despite the fact that most of the people discussed on the show are people of color from diverse backgrounds. And, of course, the fact that the show is totally engrossing and addictive – goodness knows, listening to it has been one of my white-guilty pleasures for the last three months.
Regarding the note that Sherwin ends on: We really don’t know what’s going to happen during the show on Thursday, and I’m anxious that it’s going to end without a real conclusion. What do you think? Speculate in the comments! [YouTube]
