Abe Partridge is known for his Alabama Astronaut podcast
, where he explores songs that were undocumented at churches in Appalachia. It finds him chatting with Pentecostal preachers and looking into the practice of snake handling.
He's also a musician and songwriter, and in 2022 released the EP Alabama Skies with the track "403d Freakout." He told Songfacts the story behind the song: "'Abe Partridge's 403d Freakout' was a song I wrote in about 20 minutes. It took me two weeks to make it rhyme, and then it took me about six months to learn it. I just sat and wrote a couple pages of thoughts as they came to me. It was my attempt at describing my thoughts chronologically as they sometimes occur in my head, before I filter them. It is those thoughts that I often have if I allow myself to mentally wander."
