"S-Town is potentially the most compelling story I have ever been told. This is definitely a one-day binge podcast. "

"This podcast tried to benefit from the popularity of Serial. I liked Serial, so I listened to S-Town. But somehow the scuttlebutt of a small town—and the ramblings of one eccentric man living in it—just weren't that compelling to me. It comes down to the social ramifications of the two podcasts. Serial focused on one case, but was ultimately about the flaws in our justice system. S-Town focused on one case, but there were no reflected issues in larger society to lend that case any deeper meaning."

"I really enjoyed this one. The protagonist is definitely a character. I can't decide though whether the podcast is responsible journalism or exploration. "

"S-Town is what reality TV wants to be. Nothing is scripted, and the story keeps you on your toes the entire time. About half-way through the series something happens that makes you consider what you're listening to in a different light, because the characters you've been hearing talk are real people. And real people die. Great podcast, highly recommended (especially for binge listening on a road trip."

"Look into the life of an interesting person living in a flyover state. You have to be invested in his story to like it."

"This is the most beautiful and haunting story I have ever heard. Does feel a little bit unresolved, but I was riveted from start to finish."

"Thoroughly engaging"

"SPOILERS: This podcast is a complete bait and switch. If you are interested in a deep dive into the strange life of a disturbed but brilliant southern man, then go ahead and listen. If you were looking for an investigation into murder and cover-up, you will be sorely disappointed by the end of the second episode. The producers of the TAL should be ashamed of themselves for how they exploited the main character of this story."

"Just a cash grab from serial"

"This was like that book you just can't put down but for your ears. Truly compelling"

"I have conflicting emotions about this podcast. It's certainly unconventional and doesn't follow the narrative one would expect....which is good. However I felt uncomfortable with how they essentially pillaged this guys life and broadcast it to the world. Ethically this makes me uncomfortable. A very entertaining listen, but ultimately peters out without delivering much and is ethically suspicious from a journalistic standpoint. "

"I'd rate it 4.5 if I could - almost perfect show. "

"A journalist's wacky journey of (self?) discovery that left me in awe of all the different types of people (good, bad, smart, depressed, determined, loyal, conniving) walking this earth. "

"Don't expect podcast business as usual. This is a new form / medium altogether, and it works. "
