“S-Town”, developed by “This American Life” and “Serial” creators, broke download records and made podcast history. StackPath provides the CDN (content delivery network) that ensures a flawless download and streaming experience for the record-breaking listening audience. S-Town has gained popularity faster than any podcast before it. In a little over a week, it’s attracted 1.8 million subscribers and rivaled the subscription base of its predecessors.
In fewer than four days from its March 28, 2017 release date, S-Town was downloaded more than 10 million times. In the days that followed, it was downloaded another 6 million times, totaling 16 million downloads in the first week of release. The series creators are no strangers to blockbuster podcasts; S-Town’s predecessor, Serial, has had more 260 million episode downloads since its 2014 debut. The team began using Highwinds CDN (now owned and operated by StackPath) in 2014 to support the growing demand for This American Life; it has remained an integral part of the delivery infrastructure for the subsequent Serial and S-Town projects.
