If you're into podcasts, or you're a sucker for an extremely interesting true story, you've probably joined millions of listeners in answering the question: "Did Adnan Syed actually kill Hae Lee?" This Thursday, December 11 (and December 18) at 5:30pm, meet up with your fellow murder mystery sleuths for a Serial listening party at Videology, including a drink special of $5 Old Fashioneds and a slideshow inspired by the show.

Season one of the epically popular Serial, ranked number one on iTunes for several weeks and hosted by This American Life's Sarah Koenig, follows the 1999 investigation in Baltimore of the murder of high school student Hae Min Lee. The plotline focuses around her ex-boyfriend, Adnan Syed, who was convicted of first-degree murder in her killing, and is still in prison today. But should he actually be there? That is the question.

The most recent episode explored Syed's defense lawyer, the once highly acclaimed Maria Cristina Gutierrez, who was dissbarred just one year after losing Syed's case. Thursday's episode, "Rumors," is sure to have us on the edge of our seats until the final episode airs on December 18. But don't worry, fans of the macabre—there will officially be a season two!
