Courtesy of the wits at Funny or Die, this parody of both the style and the substance of "Serial" captures listener unease over how the story will resolve itself (or won't resolve itself, if many listeners' fears are realized).

"Saturday Night Live" alum Michaela Watkins puts herself in the shoes (and voice) of series host Sarah Koenig, wrestling with her own doubts over who killed Hae Min Lee, as well as with the expectations of sponsors and fans, who desperately want to see the real-life murder mystery solved.

You can check it out here, then check out the "Serial" finale tomorrow to see if all our (and perhaps Koenig's) worst fears are realized.

"Serial" – the most popular podcast of all time, with more than 5 million downloads – deals with the 1999 killing of Baltimore high school student Lee and the case against Lee's former boyfriend, Adnan Syed, who was convicted of first-degree murder. The series is the work of Koenig, a former Baltimore Sun reporter who's now a producer for NPR's "This American Life."
