Serial podcast back in the news

OJ Simpson trial for podcasts – Serial – is back in the news with its ongoing phony story. Presumably there is some kind of promotion for another serial like crime podcast – and part of hoax management.

A Maryland appeals court on Thursday upheld a ruling granting a new trial to a man whose conviction in the murder of his high school sweetheart became the subject of the popular podcast “Serial.” Adnan Syed was convicted in 2000 of killing Hae Min Lee and burying her body in a shallow grave in a Baltimore park. He was 17 at the time. Syed’s story was widely publicized in the 2014 “Serial” podcast, which cast doubt on his guilt and inspired armchair investigators to unearth new information.
