At the end of Sarah Koenig’s 12-episode “Serial” podcast, I, for one, was left completely agnostic as to Adnan Syed’s guilt and the fairness of his trial (which got him a life sentence for the 1999 murder of his ex-girlfriend Hae Min Lee). Since then, several bloggers (including the brilliant Susan Simpson) have gone through the evidence in much greater detail. Every day, the state’s case looks worse than it did the day before, and the call of “justice for Adnan” gets louder.

The Docket, on MSNBC’s online streaming channel The Shift,  held an hour-long panel discussion on the cellphone tower evidence on Friday. The prosecutor in the case, Kevin Urick, canceled his appearance, leaving host Seema Iyer miffed and leaving the panel loaded with nothing but people slamming the state’s case.

If you like a technical discussion of 1999-era cell phone technology, here are Parts 1 and 2.
