Serial ended with Sarah Koenig to draw a conclusion based on the evidence she presented in the case of Adnan Syed. But developments have kept the case going off the air. All of the very specific court rulings and interviews with people who wouldn’t talk to Koenig seemed to be enough for another podcast altogether. So it’s fitting that another audio team is going to take up the case.
Lawyers for Adnan Syed detailed the merits on which they plan to argue that Adnan Syed deserves a new trial in the killing of Hae Min Lee. As The Guardian points out, it looks like they were avid Serial listeners like the rest of us.
Hmmm. Having to teach the world about, well, the world is a pretty hefty burden. But if Time Magazine thinks Baltimore is up to it, who are we to deny them?
Continuing a trend of turning down Sarah Koenig’s interview requests but talking to The Intercept, the state prosecutor who was charged with the case that was explored by Serial offered his thoughts on the case in an interview that was published this afternoon. Kevin Urick is standing by his work, which lead to Adnan Syed’s conviction for the 1999 murder of Hae Min Lee.
