Episode 07: The Opposite of the Prosecution
Adnan told Sarah about a case in Virginia that had striking similarities to his own: one key witness, incriminating cell phone records, young people, drugs - and a defendant who has always maintained his innocence. Sarah called up one of the defense attorneys on that case to see if she could offer any insight into Adnan’s case, and got much more than she bargained for.

How are we supposed to make sense of Jay?

Serial > Episode 06: The Case Against Adnan Syed
