Serial, the hugely popular podcast hosted by Sarah Koenig, has prompted much discussion and debate about the murder case of Hae Min Lee and conviction of Adnan Syed, who is currently serving a life sentence. Here at Idea Channel, besides our fascination with the case, the podcast caused us to start thinking about objectivism. There is a widely held expectation that the law and journalism must be objective. But is that really possible? And does Serial show us that impossibility? Watch the episode to find out more, and tell us what you think!
