(Newser) Serial is taking on the criminal courts. Breaking from its format for the first two seasons of focusing on a single story, the investigative podcast will follow several cases from inside the Cleveland criminal court system for its third season, per Entertainment Weekly. Some stories will be wrapped up in one episode while others will span multiple episodes. "For the past year I've had this urgent feeling of wanting to kind of hold open the courthouse door, and wave people inside. Because things are happening—shocking things, fascinating things—in plain sight," says host Sarah Koenig, who joins reporter Emmanuel Dzotsi on the trip inside courtrooms, judges' chambers, and attorneys' offices. The first two of 10 expected episodes are out Sept. 20, per Variety. (Read more Serial stories.)
