Diffused Congruence Podcast: Serial 's Rabia Chaudry

Since its launch last October, the Serial podcast has taken the country by storm.

Reporter Sarah Koenig's gripping investigation into the 1999 murder of high schooler Hae Min Lee, and the subsequent conviction of her ex-boyfriend Adnan Syed for the killing -- a crime for which he maintains his innocence to this day -- has set records and spurred conversation with how it combines the intrigue of a weekly procedural with broader questions about cultural assimilation and the peculiarities of the legal system.

For this episode, Parvez and I are joined by Rabia Chaudry, an attorney and civil rights activist who is a family friend of Syed's and first brought this case to Koenig's attention. Listen in to hear Rabia discuss her history with Adnan, her thoughts on what she's heard on the show thus far, and the other work she's engaged in.
