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.

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.

I am seven minutes in to this and the I like this dude. "We got Jeebus, because Jeebus is comin and global warming is a hoax and....". He has no filter and clearly more frustrated with his local idiocy. My man lol.
