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.

Wow I'm so sad to hear John killed himself. What a interesting, brilliant, caring man- if only this show came out earlier- it probably would have given him a renewed sense of purpose or satisfaction to know he was loved by so many... RIP John B

Nope! Too voyeuristic and it felt like it was exploiting rather than expounding. Rather than finding it entertaining and gripping, I found myself both feeling sorry for all the characters and actually waiting for something to happen. Pretty disappointing and now apparently the show is getting sued for not only being voyeuristic but it was released without the consent of the main character's family. So, if you like mindless shows like the Kardashians, then this is your thing. You want something more cerebral that doesn't glorify hate, dysfunction and narcissism and actually entertains you, then move on to any other audio drama out there.

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.
