Show Notes

Hey, friend,

Thank you for joining me for Running Scared with Coach Christine. I'm a Level 2 RRCA and Galloway certified coach,  but more importantly, I'm someone that knows it's so much easier to get out for your run or walk when you have something to look forward to that helps with motivation.

So if you are like me and are a runner or walker that enjoys hearing a true crime case or spooky tale, then welcome! You have found your corner of the internet.

Friend, please know that today will be a good long spoiler alert so if you have NOT listened to Serial and want to experience it for the first time before hearing opinions and a summary of it, please head over to the podcast that changed the name of the "true crime podcast" genre here.

This true crime coach cast is an interval workout, playing with different segments of varying speeds and durations, but with a heavy emphasis on  conversation, endurance-building blocks. However, this workout is just like Serial, it will have you guessing "What's next?" and you will only learn about the durations and push paces as we go into them together.

We will be using RPE found here >>

The award-winning podcast, Serial,  didn't just change the game of podcasting, it spawned an entire genre of true crime and gave long-form journalism and compelling story-telling a new outlet. Serial has quite a bit in common with my guest for today, Ashley Cisneros Mejia is an award-winning entrepreneur and journalist that is well-versed  on compelling storytelling and she was also my go-to girl when I HAD to talk to someone about Serial.

Ashley of Talk Freelance to Me,  joins me today to help recap the podcast and the case of Hae Min Lee along with the new developments of Adnan Syed who until last week was the convicted killer of Hae.

We discuss several resources and media that we personally consumed as we went down the rabbit hole of all things Serial and you can find them below.

Rabia Chaudry's Undisclosed podcast

HBO's The Case Against Adnan series

Adnan's Story: The Search for Truth and Justice after Serial written by Rabia Chaudry

And, most importantly, if you enjoyed hearing from Ashley and want to learn more about her, freelancing, or you just wanna hit her up to talk about all things Serial, connect with her on Instagram here
