Happy Friday! Take a look at what we're reading, viewing, and gawking at online.

Everyone seems to be obsessed with the new podcast "Serial;" if you've managed to miss it, it's about a teen, Adnan Syed, who was convicted in the 1999 murder of his ex-girlfriend and sentenced to life plus 30 years. After the show's narrator/producer is introduced to the case, she starts to explore the inconsistencies in stories surrounding the murder and problematic timelines that led to Syed's conviction. Many listeners are torn over who they think committed the crime, and the Subreddit is a rabbit hole of clues. You can listen to the eight episodes that have already aired on the podcast's site; new episodes come out every Wednesday. (Serial Podcast)

If you're all caught up on "Serial" and want more, we found this list helpful in finding a new podcast to stream: The 24 Best Podcast Episodes Ever. (Refinery 29)

Also, if you didn't know, we do a radio show with our sister publication the Examiner, you can check it out on BFF.fm on Fridays, 10 a.m.-noon; we talk about current events, stories we're covering, and more. (BFF.fm/SF Media Co)
Since we're on the subject, can you imagine a car without a radio? People weren't too keen on them when they were first introduced. (Mental Floss)

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
