About the podcast

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.

Thought it was boring and yeah idk, thought it was something else, I’m more to other kinds of true crime podcast and those who are more investigative.. I felt like this was more a life story of a clock maker 🤨 Of course there were bits of true crime, but for me it’s not true crime in the sense of how I think true crime should be. I don’t think this rating makes sense but I also don’t think the podcast makes sense.

Loved this, it actually made me cry! I went in expecting true crime, but got something slightly different - the Tiger King of podcasts?

Fall short of its older sister Serial. However still quite an intriguing true crime story.

Funny and compelling story. Colorful characters. Worth a listen.

Doesn’t have the narrative mystery of Serial and falls far short of that benchmark. Expect less of a story and more of a depiction of identity and isolation in rural Alabama. Tbh it feels a bit exploitative and voyeurisic by the end.

What happens next? Where is this story going? Some interesting turns and twists. A peephole into small-town America and all that comes with it.

I loved this podcast and was the first I heard from Serial. When listening to S-town you’re left with this constant feeling of not really knowing where the hell you’re going and what’s gonna happen next. It also gives a really interesting view into rural 🇺🇸 which is just a peculiar place! Great show

Such a great addictive story about an eccentric man that lives in rural America. Cannot put it down after about episode #4. Only giving a 9 as I feel like it went a bit more personal than he may have wanted.
