“It’s Baltimore, 2022. Adnan Syed has spent the last 23 years incarcerated, serving a life sentence for the murder of Hae Min Lee, a crime he says he didn’t commit. He has exhausted every legal avenue for relief, including a petition to the United States Supreme Court. But then, a prosecutor in the Baltimore State’s Attorney’s office stumbles upon two handwritten notes in Adnan’s case file, and that changes everything.”
The description for the first episode back in 2014 began, “It’s Baltimore, 1999”. It’s an amazing thing that this story has been unfolding for so long, and a podcast has let us feel like we’re part of it. It all came back today with the simple, haunting intro music that I forgot I loved. As I said yesterday, the fact that the podcast can add another episode almost eight years after its last (now just previous, I guess) episode is incredible. I hope we get more, once Adnan is willing and able.
