“Serial” is a podcasting phenomenon. It has made people more excited about real crime stories than they have been since CNN played the phrase “if it doesn’t fit, you must acquit” on a continuous loop. If you haven’t been listening to Sarah Koenig tell the story of Adnan Syed, you should probably start. In the meantime though, you can follow a different story about a different cereal.
Kyle Scheele put together his own saga, trying to piece together what happened during one fateful breakfast. He hits all the “Serial” details, right down to the MailChimp opening, which is now probably the most famous ad in the history of podcasting. Listen to it on long train rides, at your desk while you pretend to work or wherever you usually take in your podcasts.
