Podcast Party: Undisclosed The State v. Adnan Syed

Screen Shot 2015-10-02 at 6.51.51 PMPreface #1: If you haven’t listened to the podcast Serial, stop right here and start listening!

Preface #2: I think Adnan is innocent. Or I at least believe there is not enough evidence to put him away.

Okay, so half the world was obsessed with Serial when it debuted almost exactly a year ago. I personally listened to the podcast this summer not knowing that it had been a huge thing a few months before. I thought I was discovering this new cool thing but everyone was like “no Alysse, you’re like 6 months behind” #whatever.

When the podcast ended I was like “Wait what?! We don’t find out if he is innocent for sure?!” I wanted more answers, and Undisclosed, a new podcast is giving me just that!Screen Shot 2015-07-26 at 6.51.45 PM

Undisclosed is a podcast hosted by a small group of lawyers, one of which is a family friend of the Syed family (so yes, there is bias). Together they walk through some updates in Adnan’s case, but mostly focus on smaller details Serial does not touch on. Basically, they are just spelling out all the things the police investigators should have done, but didn’t. It is not as aesthetically pleasing as Serial, but I would not look at it as a continuation or a “2nd Serial”. They are not trying to be like Serial, they know they are not pro’s, they just want to share what they have discovered.

What do you think of Serial? His case? And my personal favorite, what do you think Jay’s problem is?!
