Here’s your ‘Serial’ theorizing Thanksgiving fix
In-depth ‘Serial’ post pokes major holes in Jay’s story.
If you’re listening to Serial, you might be bemoaning the lack of a new episode this Thanksgiving. But the absence of a new pod does not mean your Serial supply need run dry. Enthusiasts all over the Web are cooking up theories and analyzing timelines. One fan, Susan Simpson, has gone the extra mile and done call-by-call, in-depth analysis of the various accounts given by Jay, Adnan, Jenn, Nisha, and Cathy, replete with graphics to help you visualize the supposed location of the calls.
Simpson details the accounts given and the locations indicated by the cell-phone towers that “pinged” for each call. She then summarizes what the cell phone records show regarding the actual credibility of each story in neat, simple English.
Simpson, a lawyer who focuses primarily on the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and white collar defense, makes no claim to have cracked the case. But she sure has poked some gaping holes in Jay’s story. So if you’re hankering for more Serial this holiday and you want to get into the nitty gritty details with some fine clean writing, give Simpson’s analysis a read.
