Yes, I was up early this morning and I've already heard the first episode of Serial (Season 2) twice.
Yes, it's great -- it's hard to remember exactly how excited I was about the first episode of the first season, but right now I feel like I like this season more.
And yes, there will be lesson plans published, and hopefully soon. The vocab lessons are prepared, the quick-write prompts are ready, and there are plans for exercises on connotation and narrative form. I'll announce as soon as they're ready!
