Description The riveting, seven-part podcast S-Town broke new ground, merging techniques from literature and journalism to create a new kind of storytelling. Host and co-creator Brian Reed (also the senior producer of This American Life) and executive producer Julie Snyder (also producer of the podcast Serial) discuss the genesis and process of creating S-Town, with audio outtakes and reporting details not divulged in the final version. Produced by Serial and This American Life, S-Town broke broadcast records by achieving 40 million downloads in its first month alone. Rigorously reported and entirely true, it was the first podcast that felt like a masterful novel.
