Hello, listeners. Perhaps you've been listening to our new spinoff show Serial, which tells one story over the course of a multiple-episode season. If you have, and you'd like to hear a second season, you can help make that possible. This first season has been an experiment, funded by This American Life. But for the show to continue, it has to be financially sustainable on its own. So if you're liking Serial and want it to stay in production, please donate. We're only asking for one week. If we make enough to cover Season Two, we'll use the money on Season Three or some other project we invent.
