A NEW WAY TO TELL A STORY
S-Town's rich and thoughtful story telling has captured the attention of audiences from around the world. Join the host and co-creator, Brian Reed, for an in-depth discussion about the groundbreaking podcast on Friday 29th September at Dublin’s Bord Gais Energy Theatre.
The whole world became invested in the story of a small town Alabama resident by the name of John B. McLemore when the groundbreaking podcast S-Town was released earlier this year.
Brian Reed, host and co-creator of S-Town, originally set out to find a new story for This American Life. Instead, he spent three years investigating the life and tribulations of McLemore before releasing S-Town to the world, capturing audiences with the twists and turns of life in Bibb County, Alabama and presenting an audio story akin to great literature.
Now Reed takes to the stage to unpack what happened behind the microphone, exploring your unanswered questions and unravelling the story and process behind the rich and thoughtful storytelling of S-Town. Hear more about Brian's experiences with John, find out what's happened since Brian left Bibb County and turned the microphone off, and learn the consequences of the podcast being released to the world.
Part conversation, part Q and A, you'll have the opportunity to ask Brian your burning questions and find out more about the intriguing world of S-Town.
