Kahan Dhillon, a young Sikh, Indian-American real estate developer from Fairfax County, mysteriously shows up in Baltimore touting a $10 billion citywide redevelopment plan. Although he represents himself as a civic leader and savior for a city in need of change, something seems awry. Is Kahan Dhillon a legitimate developer looking to do good for Charm City?

Part verite documentary, part character study, and part investigative expose, Season 1 of Town of the Big House tracks the year and a half Producer Richard Yeagley covered the story, interacting with and immersing himself into the life of the enigmatic developer.

Hoping for a Sequel

When I finished all the episodes of this podcast I was yearning for more. Eloquent and decisive, this podcast gives a glimpse into the actions of a curious character. A man who appears quite harmless but there is a secret lurking beneath. It left me thinking, it left me more intrigued than when I started and I hope there will be updates coming soon! Because this story isn't over.

GREAT listen.

Loved this podcast. Truly a binge-listen. The coverage of the main subject is fantastic and really gets you thinking. Excellent study of people in general...no matter who/what Kayan is, the lengths he is willing to go for his cause are staggering. Great story and superb reporting.
