There’s a Serial listening party at Westport Flea Market tonight

Pretty much the only thing motivating us to go to the gym these days is listening to Serial, the offshoot podcast of This American Life that tells one story over the course of multiple episodes; it’s like a nonfiction, audio version of a premium cable-TV drama. This inaugural season, which takes a closer look at the 1999 murder of a Baltimore high school student, has been an unprecedented podcast hit. You should probably just get onboard right now; catch up here.

If you’re all current, you might consider attending the listening party that KCUR is hosting at Westport Flea Market tonight, for the penultimate 11th episode. Get there at 6 p.m. for some mingling and food-eating and beverage-drinking (reminder: the Flea is cash only). After that, everyone will listen to the episode. Then, because the topic of this season is a possible wrongful conviction, Tricia Bushnell, legal director of the Midwest Innocence Project, will lead a discussion about Serial and exonerating innocent people, and who knows what else.  

It’s free, but you should RSVP and possibly get there early if you want to save a seat. RSVP here
