CTB Podcast

Undisclosed
Description: When Serial ended its first season in late 2014, a lot of questions remained about the 1999 murder of Woodlawn High School senior Hae Min Lee and the subsequent conviction of her ex-boyfriend, Adnan Syed. Hosted by Rabia Chaudry (yes, the Rabia who first brought the case to Serial host Sarah Koenig’s attention), this podcast continues the investigation with help from law school professor Colin Miller and D.C.-based attorney Susan Simpson.
