Description

S-Town is a new podcast from Serial and This American Life, hosted by Brian Reed, about a man named John who despises his Alabama town and decides to do something about it. He asks Brian to investigate the son of a wealthy family who's allegedly been bragging that he got away with murder. But when someone else ends up dead, the search for the truth leads to a nasty feud, a hunt for hidden treasure, and an unearthing of the mysteries of one man's life.

this has been an amazing journey, it totally went somewhere different from what I was expecting from the first episode! I loved every minute of it, would have loved to sit and talk with John

I didn't think I would enjoy this because I wanted something dark and dangerous but then I got my heart broken. Therefore, it became medicine to my soul and helped me heal. Thank you John 🤗

I felt every inch of this podcast on so many levels. I'm from a small rural town in Alabama, I feel outcasted from every social circle I should be apart of, I take on the neglect and ignorance of the world as my own, I suffer from depression and Love is elusive and unattainable it seems...even in a relationship. I have begun to understand my illness a little more through listen to this podcast. Thanks for sharing John B's story and life with us.

Kendall was salty and bitter that John spoke about his family via the podcast soooo he bought the land where John's house used to sit on purpose. Retaliation of a bitter old man indeed.

I know that this podcast is in hot debate but has anyone considered that by telling John's story, the podcast IS exposing Shit Town and is giving soul to the human condition in a way that exposes that John's Shit Town, just as John said, embodied all that is wrong with our society? It seems like something that John would support - showing the truth of his Shit Town to show the truth of society's ignored dimensions.

Well Johns story is extraordinary. He had quite the life. Shit Town does sound like a pretty shitty place.

I wish John had known the impact he had on the lives around him, how he had saved Michael Fuller. Perhaps it would have held back some of John's demons inside.

You can hear the emotion in Brian's voice as he narrates John's funeral. It sounds like he really truly cares and is empathetic.

John was a character, but I like him. Its hard not to like him. He seems like he was a good man, chasing himself in a circle in his head.

Also, this town seriously does sound like a shit town. A racist, ignorant, loud mouthed shit town, at least, parts of it.
