Nothing else quite like it.
Hello! My name is Ken. As a fellow podcaster, I know how important reviews can be to creators like us. That’s why, in the spirit of the season, I’ve decided to give your podcast 5 stars. If you’re also feeling in a giving mood, feel free to review mine as well! It’s called PRRP, which stands for Podcast Reviews Reviews Podcast. (It’s a podcast that reviews the reviews of its podcast.) Happy holidays!
Ok, I loved this podcast. It was weird, wacky and unbelievable in places, but it gripped me and I binged it in no time. Worth a listen, for sure.
A Fascinating story is full of interesting characters. Loved it!
This is as close to a real life novel as a podcast gets. Full of symbolism, poetry, and incredibly complex characters. Still I struggled to stay interested and finish it. If it wasn't so hyped, I'm not sure I would've stuck with it.
I've been wanting to listen to this podcast for a while now and finally had the chance. It's hard to see what it's going to become based on how it starts, but after sticking with it I enjoyed the ride it took me on, through Shit Town and its inhabitants, and the ups and downs in the life of the main subject. Definitely worth a listen!
Entirely gripping. Great character development. Crazy that this story is true.
I had no clue this story was true as I listened, I just thought it was just great story telling and voice acting like the many audio dramas I listen to. Imagine my surprise when I was looking in to the story and the first article to pull up would be one saying the podcast was being sued for exploitation.
Amazingly interesting personalities. This podcast is like a good book that with characters and a setting that seem almost surreally weird.
Excellent writing and production.
This was one of the most captivating podcasts I've listened to in a while. Couldn't stop listening to is.
Finally gave this one a whirl after office chatter reached a fever pitch. Felt so bad for John and his town sounds all too familiar. I love the South but sometimes y'all! ?
I wish I could discover it all over again. One of the best audio experiences of all time. Nuts. Gut wrenching. Human. Revealing. Sad. Beautiful. Enough about me, the podcast is great - set aside time to leave your body and enter an amazing journey to the heart of John. This is epic, listen or die never having really taken in a true gasp of shock.
Compelling. Heartbreaking. The one podcast who's story I almost know by heart. This podcast isn't for those who like to multitask since it requires your attention.
Damn fine storytelling.
I couldn't make it though this podcast. It felt invasive and unethical, and I'm not at all surprised to find out that this podcast is being sued for exploitation. The reporting is voyeuristic and irresponsible, especially when it comes to the potential outing (or direct outing) of queer individuals. In one instance, a conversation that John explicitly asked to be kept off the record is revealed by Brain Reed. I didn't find this show entertaining, interesting, or enjoyable. I mostly just found it unredeemable.
S-Town is epic. No matter where I was listening I was transported to Alabama amongst the tree's and the s**t. Could not stop listening to this twisted tale. Highly recommend to anyone. Enjoy.
This show was fantastic to me. I loved the southern-ness of it and was able to really visualize it. While I was sad to see the story take the turn that it did, I'm glad we were able to hear the story. A must listen.
This podcast is amazing! It unravelled in a way that kept me hanging on throughout. And the twist is, it wasn’t meant to. Literally. Give it a crack it’s great.
The people are real and John B was a fascinating person. So smart and conflicted just listen you will love it.
