“The Prologue” on Points South, a Podcast from Oxford American

Production of twenty-four podcast segments and four video short films on the culture of the American South.

“The Prologue” is a series of feature-length segments deeply reported and researched to air within Points South, an hourlong podcast from the Oxford American. Points South reflects the richness and diversity of the Oxford American magazine and its affiliated programming. Over the organization’s twenty-five-plus years, the South’s most important and promising writers, scholars, poets, and artists have told their stories in the magazine’s pages and at its events. In twenty-four segments over three years, “The Prologue” seeks to unearth Southern stories and experiences at their roots, tracing the importance of places, moments, and people to their reverberations in the present.
