“Serial” fans hankering for more details about the Adnan Syed case are in luck: On April 13th, Rabia Chaudry, the lawyer who first brought Syed’s case to Sarah Koenig, is launching a podcast of her own, called “Undisclosed: The State v. Adnan Syed” which will chronicle the new evidence and information that has emerged in “Serial”’s wake.

“The remarkable success of the podcast ‘Serial’, which brought to light the many questions that remained unresolved in this case, also left many questions unanswered,” says the description on the podcast's website. With the help of lawyers Susan Simpson and Colin Miller, Chaudry will examine and explore the case in greater detail, from an investigatory perspective instead of a narrative one."

The podcast will be sponsored by the crowdfunded Adnan Syed Legal Trust, which has already raised over $92,000 to support Syed's case. In February, Maryland’s Court of Special Appeals granted Syed leave to appeal his murder conviction, on the basis that he was granted ineffective counsel by his original lawyer Cristina Gutierrez.
