Rabia is an attorney, author, advocate, and podcaster. If you’re an avid podcast listener, you’ve likely heard her on 2014’s “Serial.” Rabia was Adnan Syed’s childhood friend, and “Serial” centered on his story. Rabia wrote a New York Times best-selling book about the case, Adnan’s Story: The Search for Truth and Justice After Serial.
Rabia shared that before “Serial,” she was constantly writing, worked as a columnist for TIME Magazine, a fellow in international security, and spent 13 years doing federal immigration and civil rights law among other jobs. Rabia’s podcasting resume also includes “Nighty Night with Rabia Chaudry,” “Hidden Djinn,” and “Undisclosed.”
Ellyn is from the Broadway world and shares that she is on this podcast because “Serial” paved the way for the true crime genre. Ellyn praised how Rabia changed how people view true crime by introducing Adnan’s case to Sarah Koenig when she was a producer on “This American Life.” Sarah then extensively investigated the story and created “Serial.”
A recent episode of “Rabia and Ellyn Solve the Case” covered Laci Peterson’s murder in 2002 and her husband Scott’s conviction in 2004. Rabia and Ellyn dove into the facts on the episode, and we learn that at the time of her death, Laci was pregnant. Scott received a life sentence without parole after sitting on death row for almost 20 years. Due to juror misconduct, the California Supreme Court dropped his death penalty and there were case updates as late as August 2022.
