Serial is investigating the 1999 murder of a Baltimore area high school student, and here at Slate we are following the story closely, discussing each new episode as it appears. This week, David Haglund and Katy Waldman are joined by Wesley Morris of Grantland to talk about the meaning of psychopathy, the reporting of rumors, and what people should read, watch, or listen to when Season 1 of Serial ends next week. We are also joined by Mark Phillips, who mixes and composes music for Serial.
