World Serial crime The creators of the smash hit podcast Serial are releasing a fresh installment of the show, delving not just into a single case but Cleveland’s entire criminal court system.

Murphy told THR that he delivered the good news to Lewinsky at a party. "I told her, 'Nobody should tell your story but you, and it's kind of gross if they do.
