In A Win For True Crime Podcasts Everywhere, Adnan Syed Granted New Trial

A Maryland appellate court has affirmed the grant of a new trial for Adnan Syed, who was convicted of strangling his ex-girlfriend Hae Min Lee and sentenced to life in prison in 2000.

Syed and Lee were in high school at the time of the murder, and Syed has been in prison for the past 18 years. He has always proclaimed his innocence.

In its opinion, the appellate court cited a “deficient performance” by Syed’s defense attorney, Christine Gutierrez, now deceased. Gutierrez failed to locate and interview Asia McClain, who may have provided Syed with an alibi for the time of the murder and possibly “raised a reasonable doubt in the mind of at least one juror,” which the court found “prejudiced Syed’s defense.”

The appellate court rejected the trial court’s primary reasoning for granting a new trial,

Podcasts Get the Hollywood Treatment, Complete With Zach Braff

A podcast offers up intellectual property in a particularly appealing format — compared with a book or even a script, it’s a stronger proof of concept of how a show or movie would actually play out. “It’s one step closer to seeing it onscreen,” Mr. Tarses said. “You already know what it sounds like.”

Like many of the properties bending Hollywood’s ear, “StartUp” is a very successful podcast; it’s been downloaded tens of millions of times since its debut in 2014. But podcast listeners still constitute a very different audience than viewers of network sitcoms, with different sensibilities. And the elements that make a podcast spark — internal conflict, patient world building, conversational digressions — don’t translate seamlessly to TV.

“There were things we loved about the podcast, but we had to turn it into an ABC show,” Mr. Braff said.

So the inside

7 True Crime Podcasts You Should Listen to Right Away

2017 was the year of the binge-worthy true crime podcast, but fear not: reporters, investigators and regular folks everywhere are still dishing dirt on the darker side of humanity. Whether you’re into serial murders or small-town kidnappings, these seven podcasts are just the ticket.

1.  “Atlanta Monster”

The 1980 disappearance of Darron Glass from his foster home caused a media circus. What’s more disturbing: he was one of over two dozen young black children who were never seen alive again. Eventually, a suspect was arrested, tried and convicted, but the mystery was far from solved. Is Wayne Williams, an intelligent freelance photographer who is still in prison, guilty or innocent? In “Atlanta Monster,” the producers of “HowStuffWorks” and “Up and Vanished” expose the hidden truths behind one of Atlanta’s darkest secrets. “Up and Vanished”’s Payne Lindsey also hosts “Atlanta Monster,” his signature probing questions and friendly

My Dad Wrote a Porno

Try and listen to this without exploding into laughter – you can’t, it’s impossible. The premise is simple: Jamie Morton reads his father’s erotic novel, Belinda Blinked, aloud while his friends James Cooper and Alice Levine ruthlessly pull it apart (for its bad grammar and its absurdity). Filthily funny and worryingly addictive.

Five true crime podcasts you should have already listened to

Podcasts have been around since… well the invention of the iPod. So while podcasting isn’t a new phenomenon, its commonly accepted that there are two time periods “BS” (before Serial) and “PS” (post-Serial).

Serial broke all podcast records in 2014 and became the first podcast to be downloaded more than 5 million times.

If you haven’t heard of the true crime podcast Serial – stop what you are doing immediately, download all 11 episodes to your device and listen to the best and most beautifully crafted audio you’ll ever hear.

But seriously – Serial launched the ‘true crime’ genre of podcasts and launched hundreds of copycats. Some of the true crime wannabes were criminal, but others were great contenders and worthy opponents

Tuned in to podcasts – University of Wisconsin

Morris pulls from the more than 250,000 podcasts available today, from National Public Radio’s This American Life to the design-focused 99% Invisible to audio fiction like Homecoming. He highlights examples including comedy, true crime, political interviews and dramatic fiction, and set-ups ranging from two buddies around a mic to full-fledged professional productions.

“Students come in with assumptions of what a podcast sounds like,” based on the particular types of podcasts they’ve experienced, he says. “The course opens their ears to other shows.”

Each week, the class heads to a lab to learn a new technical skill, such as how to remove background noise, how to loop a beat of music or where to get sounds effects. All the while, Morris emphasizes that there’s much more to a good podcast than technology.

“I like to remind them that the software is going to change,” says Morris, who produced more than 200 episodes of
