good lord, this is unlistenable. a libturd redneck with a a conspiracy complex. this is exactly why Donald Trump won in 2016 and will win again in 2020. this is probably the dumbest podcast I've ever heard.

OMG! I agree that this would make the BEST movie. I know real people like the citizens in this town. It's somewhat typical of a small southern town. Maybe one or two of the folks are a little extreme, but not much! Excellent job, and I really hope someone makes the movie (but not with Galifianakis as the star).

I dont understand, I guess, why YOU Brian.. didn't speak up to Rita about John and Tyler's relationship. and how much John loved Tyler and his brother. John would have wanted Rita and her husband and everyone else to know. Wouldnt as smart as John was... know if Tyler was a bad person. He wasnt, and no one defends their relationship. I just can't quit thinking about how heart broken Tyler must be through all this.. maybe that's why the police aren't helping Rita.. because they all know the truth. Brian, as someone who spent time with John and knew his love for Tyler... you should have defending their relationship a long time ago. I love this podcast, but I find that very disappointed

March 14, 2019 and I have NEVER in my life heard such a story so heart grabbing and interested as this. I have never become so invested in a story in my life. I miss John li ke he was my friend. His self education is mind boggling. He would have been wonderful for the world to know him like we learn about him. God Rest his soul safely and securely. I dont know why I've never heard about this story before. Brian Reed you gotta do more sir.

I listened to this podcast in a day! When I got home from my commute, I couldn't stop. The only podcast I have done since was Serial S1. This was brilliant! I laughed, cried, felt anger and doubt. 👏

Being a small town Alabama native, I can see clearly everything that John is telling Brian about his Shit-town hometown. From the trailer he lived in with his momma to the F150 truck John drove...plus the menagerie of dogs he had. It's said, "you can never go home again"... I call bullshit on this! I felt as though John was describing my own Shit-town hometown!! RIP John B.
