When all seven chapters of S-Town were released in one mighty swoop on March 28 this year, podcasting entered a new realm. Ten million episodes were downloaded in four days, obliterating records.

And now, series creator Brian Reed is coming to Australia to talk about how he did it. At an evening titled 'Mysteries, Mazes and the Making of S-Town', he'll be chatting about telling stories, combining reporting with literariness, leaving things unsaid and, of course, John B. McLemore, the podcast's eccentric, obsessive, unforgettable protagonist.

Along the way, you're likely to hear him touching on all the big themes that found their way into S-Town: greed, poverty, mental health issues and prejudice. And, if you've been plagued by questions of journalistic ethics, this would be the time to dig them out.

The only catch? Tickets are already selling fast. So, you'd better be quick.
