Stranger Things, Serial Update(s)& Omar on The Night Of

Well, it took more than one try, but the Crime Writers are getting it done with a well-rehearsed discussion on Netflix's newest breakout hit, "Stranger Things." It's like Stephen King and Steven Spielberg had a baby that was eight-episodes long. (Almost) no spoilers...except that it's freakin' awesome.

We also debut a brand new segment: the TRUE CRIME ROUND-UP!

We've got the latest on the Adnan Syed appeal and the Bowe Bergdahl court martial.

The panel's sharp eyes turn back to HBO's "The Night Of." What was a straight murder mystery is now part prison story, part crime procedural. Half way through, is it losing focus or hitting its stride.

ALSO: Watch for details on the first Crime Writers On live podcast. (Click here for a sort-of RSVP!)

We'll wrap up our summer book club with an audience-participation discussion on Laura Lippman's Wilde Lake. We'll be at the the Hatbox Theater in Concord, NH September 12th. FREE ADMISSION. Surprises galore!
