Season two of the highly popular podcast Serial has kicked off and is now available on iTunes. The second season of Serial, which focuses on telling an engrossing true story over the course of several episodes, centers on the story of Army Private First Class (PFC) Bowe Bergdahl, who opted to leave his Afghanistan base in 2009 before being captured by the Taliban and subsequently released as part of a prisoner swap in 2014.

To tell Bergdahl's story, Serial draws heavily from several phone interviews that The Hurt Locker and Zero Dark Thirty screenwriter Mark Boal held with Bergdahl. Given that Bergdahl has remained relatively quiet since his return in 2014, Serial season 2 should be pretty interesting. If you're eager to check out the first episode, you can grab it on iTunes now from the link below.
