Hundreds of millions of people tuned into Serial season one back in 2014. Sarah Koenig told us all about the story of 18-year-old high school senior Hae Min Lee who disappeared on January 13th, 1999. Hae's body was later found in Leakin Park, and not too long after the discovery of her body, police zeroed in on their prime suspect: Adnan Syed. Sarah took us all through 12 episodes of "Did he or didn't he?" and many of us ended the season with more questions than answers. But did you know that Serial was just the beginning and there was so much that Sarah never covered? If you listened to Serial season one, you must listen to this single episode that sums up the top four points Serial didn't tell you, but you need to know before you decide whether or not you think Adnan is guilty. We won't be re-covering the Serial story - we jump in assuming you already know it. So, if you haven't listened yet, check out the first season of Serial.

Hello everyone and welcome to a very special episode of Crime Junkie. I am your host Ashley Flowers.


And I'm Britt. And today we're setting out to make a podcast episode that I have been wishing


existed for years. A single episode that can sizely gives a high-level overview of all of the facts


you can't get on Adnan Sciad's case just from listening to serial. Like many people, my first


introduction into the podcast world was with serial in 2014. Yeah, you're welcome. I was actually


the one who got you into it. Yeah, it was the best gift you ever gave me. Serial season one is


like the reigning king of True Crime podcast. The story telling was just absolutely phenomenal and it


drew me in in a way that no other podcast has been able to do since. And I know other people felt


the same way because the podcast has gotten hundreds of millions of downloads. The first season is


set in Baltimore, Maryland. And it tells the story of a young high school senior named Hayman Lee


who was murdered in 1999. But the focus of the story is really on her ex-boyfriend Adnan Sciad


who was later convicted of her murder. The host of serial Sarah Canig tries to make a determination


for herself and for the listeners is Adnan a cold-blooded killer who has his friends and families


fooled or is he innocent of Hay's murder. I'm not going to recount all 12 episodes of serial season one.


That's been done by so many other podcasts and there's no way I could tell the story better


than Sarah did herself. Plus, I don't want to rob you of the experience. I think it's important


that you take the roller coaster ride that we were all on back in 2014. So if you've been living


under a rock, hit pause on our episode now and go listen to season one of serial. Then come back


here and I'll tell you what serial left out. But for everyone who's caught up, here we go.


This was an amazing topic to debate with people back in 2014. Did he or didn't he? And it's


something that Brit you and I even debated back then. And I had strong questions coming out of


serial that made me think maybe he did. I kept coming back to Jay. Why would Jay implicate himself
