Welcome to my blog. I write about fitting in, sticking out, and missing the motherland as a serial foreigner.

The Jay interview

Jay (of Serial (in)fame) gave an interview! He said he would do it, and then he did it!

I read it. And...I'm disappointed. If he's lying again, telling yet another untrue version of the events of 13 January 1999, then I'm so tired of it and I learned nothing new. If, on the other hand, he's telling the truth, it's a truth that is no longer believable.

At this point, I'm waiting for the DNA to come back. In fact, if you're interested in the Innocent Project's progress on the case, with lots of details that did not make it into the final episode of Serial, you can listen to a podcast here.

(Also, how weird is it that Jay looks almost exactly as I imagined him? Do you ever do that with people on the radio - imagine how they look? I do, and I got Jay just right.)
