Third Coast Presents: S-Town Hall, a public chat about the new podcast we’re all listening to. With S-Town just passing 40 million downloads – a record breaking statistic for podcasts everywhere – we know there are some people who have listened that NEED to talk about how they feel about it. When did you fall in love with John, did you at all? What are your lingering questions after finishing? If you haven’t finished, is there a reason why? How do you feel about Brian Reed? We want to know and Third Coast is here to moderate.
Informally dubbed “the Sundance of radio,” Third Coast International Audio Festival has been curating great audio documentaries since 2000. But it’s rare to hear the kind of buzz that surrounds S-Town, a new podcast from the makers of This American Life & Serial.
S-Town is a new podcast from Serial and This American Life, hosted by Brian Reed, about a man named John who despises his Alabama town and decides to do something about it. He asks Brian to investigate the son of a wealthy family who’s allegedly been bragging that he got away with murder. But then someone else ends up dead, and the search for the truth leads to a nasty feud, a hunt for hidden treasure, and an unearthing of the mysteries of one man’s life.
So, join us for an evening of conversation, feelings, snacks & drinks.
This event if free & open to the public.
