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.

I was hooked the moment I heard the first phone call. If they gave Oscars for Podcasts this would be a winner.

I started listening to this Podcast thinking it was a "True Crime" story. In all honesty, it turned out to be so much more than I ever expected. It made you wish so much more for John's brilliance than where it ended up for him. Thank you so much for sharing the story of John and S Town.
