Do you ever notice how most radio station websites and apps are unusable? There's something called User Experience Design and User Interface Design (UX / UI Design) that would help with this. I was excited to learn that Ray has taken this route while doing radio on the side. More radio people should be the ones behind fixing these awful platforms.

Serial is a podcast from Serial Productions, a New York Times company, hosted by Sarah Koenig. Serial unfolds one story - a true story - over the course of a whole season. The show follows the plot and characters wherever they lead, through many surprising twists and turns. Sarah won't know what happens at the end of the story until she gets there, not long before you get there with her. Each week she'll bring you the latest chapter, so it's important to listen in, starting with Episode 1. New episodes are released on Thursday mornings.
