S-Town is a podcast hosted by Brian Reed from Serial Productions, a New York Times company. The story follows 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 love true crime podcasts, and that’s what I was expecting when I started this one. It wasn’t one, it was so much more. I found it strangely intriguing and could not stop listening. The decent into the mind of John, the life, the conversations and the aftermath. It’s depressing. I thought about it long after, and to be honest I still think about it. I don’t know really why, to say I liked it seems weird. It was very well done. "
"It's a great story, but it isn't so much a true crime pocast as it is more a strange, dark slice of life podcast. If I had walked in knowing that I would have liked it more and not have spent the entire time waiting for the true crime aspect to progress. So, keep that in mind before you start. 🙂"
