Ever since Serial came along in 2014 and awakened the world to the wonders of podcasting, true crime fans have been looking for a way to recreate that high. The story of high school senior Hae Min Lee’s murder and the conviction of her ex-boyfriend, Adnan Sayed has since received a TON of press and has been turned into both a book and an HBO documentary.

Featured Workspace is a regular Lifehacker feature where we highlight the desktop setups where people work, play, relax and get stuff done. Over the past few years, we've looked at more workstations, battlestations and office spaces and gaming dens than we can count. Here are some of our personal favourites.
I have 470 podcast episodes in my queue right now, after some paring down. There’s just too much good stuff to listen to: fiction, chat shows, history lessons, interviews, reported documentaries, weird semi-fiction. Of the hundreds of podcast episodes I listened to this year, these are the 15 that taught or entertained me the most.
We have a roundup of our favourite TwoCents articles of 2018, but when it comes to money, there’s so much more to understand beyond the practical “how tos.” The ins and outs of predatory lenders and how they prey on people, what the weight of student loan debt can do to a family and a frank conversation about why the American Dream doesn’t really exist anymore are all topics worth engaging.
I took over the reigns of 'Ask Lifehacker' during my very first month at Lifehacker, and I’ve had a blast coming up with answers — occasional guesses, but mostly well-researched opinions — for your many tech questions.
This year in How I Work, we interviewed over 50 developers, designers, writers, podcasters, actors, and other successful people in business, non-profits, tech, the arts, and entertainment, discussing their work habits and career paths. Every one is excellent—we reach out to our favourite people and sift through hundreds of applications a year to choose our guests—but these are some of the greatest profiles of the year, and some of their best quotes.
As the year draws to a close and January 1 begins to loom in a slightly ominous fashion, you may find yourself examining the food choices you made in 2018. Obviously you should regret nothing, but if all this reflection leads to hankering for a salad or two, we have quite a few resources to make sure it’s the best salad possible (including a bacon fat vinaigrette).
This year we challenged ourselves to blaze new trails in lifting, cardio, yoga and more. Along the way we upgraded just about every aspect of our fitness, from achieving near-transcendence on a running path to working around that one arsehole at the gym.
Here are our best fitness posts of 2018.
Every week on Lifehacker, we interview a successful person about their career and their work habits, in a column called How I Work. And every week we ask them, “What’s the best advice you’ve ever received?” Here are the best answers our guests gave us in 2018.
Trust us, we did not enjoy telling you that steaming your vagina could burn you. Nor did we really want to write any of the posts below. But we live in the real world, where people consider doing harmful things to themselves and others.
Like putting two spaces after a period. Here are the posts that we wish we hadn’t had to write.
Lifehacker readers are nothing if not practical. According to our traffic logs, in 2018 you wanted faster wifi, cheaper flights, and a guide to staying anonymous when you win the lottery. All stuff that people need to live a happy and productive life. Check out our stories on these topics and more in our ten most popular posts of the year.
