Trying to find new work-time listening

Music isn't doing it for me anymore, so I've been trying out other things. I started off with We're Alive: A Story of Survival, which I DNF'ed a while back. I like full-cast audio dramas, I like zombie stories, but just about all the characters in this series annoy me. I made it as far as maybe disc 4 last time, but I don't know that I'll even make it through disc 1 now.

 

So, I'm giving something else a shot. A former high school friend of mine, who's now an attorney, recommended Serial. It's a nonfiction podcast about a murder in Baltimore in 1999. Is anyone else familiar with it? So far it's working better for me than We're Alive.
