Season 2 of the Serial podcast is back. It was released Beyonce-style yesterday, revealing a new episode without warning.
And boy are we happy about it.
Sarah Koenig's voice is as mysterious and soothing as she retells the story of a complex exchange that involved five Taliban prisoners and an army sergeant.
The season is uncovering bits and pieces of mysterious disappearance of U.S. Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, and his recapture from the Taliban.
The first episodes (I promise no spoilers) essentially follows his "desertion" story. The first time the army sergeant disappeared was when he deserted his post in eastern Afghanistan.
