My name is Paul, and I’m addicted to the Investigation Discovery cable channel.
“ID”—for those not in the know—is Discovery Communications’ 24/7 collection of original and curated true-crime mysteries. Recently, my ID addiction led to the discovery of “Serial,” a new true-crime show that investigates a 15-year-old murder case. The show isn’t on TV. In fact, it’s not on radio or YouTube, either. It’s actually in a trendy digital format that’s risen in popularity by 25 percent from 2013-2014, according to Edison Research.
