In another event, Sarah Koenig’s Serial podcast portrays society as a system of criminal injustice and biased assumptions when the star of the series, Adnan Syed, becomes convicted of a crime without solid evidence; likewise, in Plato’s “Allegory of the Den,” the prisoners rest chained to their own ignorance with the same unadaptability as those subject to society’s everlasting
