S-Town is hard to describe. It’s a podcast that starts as a traditional investigation into corruption and wrongdoing in rural Alabama. Winner of the TC/RHDF 2017 Directors' Choice Award.

Over the course of its seven chapters it becomes something much newer and stranger: a literary profile of one man’s life. We're featuring an excerpt from Chapter 1.

S-Town was produced by Brian Reed and Julie Snyder with editorial advisors Ira Glass, Sarah Koenig and Neil Drumming.
