When Rabia Chaudry approached a journalist to tell the story of her friend Adnan Syed, all she hoped for was to find new evidence to use in an appeal against his conviction for the murder of Hae Min Lee. What she got was Serial – the podcast that became an international phenomenon.
This is the story of how that show was made, and how Rabia, an immigration lawyer, is using technology to fight injustices in the US legal system, including through her own blockbusting podcast series Undisclosed. She also talks about her work as an executive producer on HBO’s The Case Against Adnan Syed documentary, and reveals her role in a new podcast for Netflix.
