From the people that created the Serial phenomenon, S-Town debuted in May 2017, reinventing the true crime podcast by weaving a story that hooked people like a novel that can’t be put down. Narrated by Brian Reed, producer of This American Life, S-Town smashed download records for a podcast, getting over 16M downloads in its first week and 40M+ in its first month. Like Serial, it begins with the investigation of a murder in a small town. But S-Town goes beyond the crime to paint an unfinished portrait of a man and the sleepy Alabama town he inhabits. Vulture named it the top podcast of 2017, and fans can’t wait to see where Brian and his team will take them next.
