The case made famous by Serial is once again the focus of the team behind the podcast.
Adnan Syed is back in court to argue that he deserves a new trial in connection with Hae-Min Lee’s murder. With the big event that she helped bring to prominence, Sarah Koenig is back in Baltimore to follow the court proceedings. According to a newsletter, Serial is turning away from its current coverage of Bowe Bergdahl for Season 2 to return to the subject that got us all obsessed with the podcast in Season 1.
Koenig is filing audio updates about each day of the three-day hearing at the Serial website. She describes a “surreal” feeling when Serial was a topic of discussion in court.
At the three-day hearing, Syed’s legal team is arguing that he deserved a new trial because of the discovery of potential alibi witness Asia McClain, inadequate representation from his attorney Cristina Gutierrez, and cell phone records that were unclear.
