    Started as assignment but will continue by choice!

    I had to listen to an episodic type story podcast for my AP Literature class and I chose this! It was amazing! I’ve only listened to the first two episodes so far but will definitely have to continue to see where it goes. Bringing in the different voices brought the whole plot together and gave a sense of what talking to the different characters was like. I adore John and his abstract ideas and the way he sees the world around him. The chaos that he is and him communicating to the New York Journalist the happening of his town are brilliantly described. I loved listening and can’t wait to listen to the other episodes and find out where this story goes!

    Total let down. This is a story about nothing which took the producers too long to figure out. This belongs on the cutting room floor.

    Seemed intriguing, but no follow through

    I really enjoyed the mystery, storytelling and personality in the first 2 episodes. In the next 3, the plot thickened and I was eager to see where it would lead. The last 2 episodes fell flat. The story line dropped and turned into something else completely. I’m left feeling unsatisfied, and not in a good way.

    The edge of brilliance

    This is one of those rare journeys into a maze of uncomfortable treasures. Forget the predictable and expected direction you think you are following. Listen closely and you will get lost. That’s the beauty of letting go and trusting the narrator. He is introducing a magical world as you walk thru the mind of a genius, who is all too aware of the danger he faces within his own brilliant universe. I needed to get lost by a story. I needed an escape. Recovering from surgery, I was recommended this podcast. I wasn’t aware there could be such tenderness in the exploration of a darkly racist region of the south. This is a richly faceted gemstone hidden under a rock. That’s how it feels. I want to honor the mystery by not going any further. It was a perfect mix of all the sounds you need to listen to the harmony of someone else’s soul.

    Amazing storytelling with a profound look on a life and town

    I can’t say how much this story touched me. It made me feel all the emotions you could imagine. Mostly the reporting of one man’s life and memoir of his relationship to the world made you feel empathy for a stranger that makes you feel like family in the end. After hearing this story I wonder what happened since. One thing is certain, everyone has their “version” of the story of the life of John B. And not any one version is 100% of who the man was. It’s sad but the journalist did a terrific job telling it. I highly recommend it to anyone wanting a new perspective on your own life and relationships.

    A lovely surprise

    I love This American Life, working my way through the archive of shows, listened to all episodes of Serial and Nice White Parents. All are consistently brilliant. I thought S Town would be more incredible investigative journalism and got that but also got the beautiful telling of one person's life story. This is masterful. Thank you.

    So sad but good

    I’m an emotional wreck from this, but it is an interesting story. If you have trouble with a lack of closure I maybe wouldn’t listen. Very good though.

    True artistry

    Brian Reed is a beautiful storyteller and accomplished journalist who doesn’t miss a beat on either side of arguments or the in-between. He finds beauty where there is seemingly none to be found; light in a gray area. I have just finished the series moments ago and am already emotional over it ending. This is a gorgeous and moving tribute to a genius loved and lost.

    Strong show

    This was a really gripping story. My only gripe is that the host doesn’t seem to get that he’s not going to understand people in Woodstock until he can drop his privileged NYC lens. Yes, Tyler thinks what he does is justified because he’s had a VERY different life than Brian Reed. It’s not an excuse, but it IS a reason. I think the show just reveals the ignorance of privilege more than anything else.

    A moving tribute

    I’ve read the arguments from the family of John B. I feel for them - but - this feels to me lik a moving tribute to a complicated man. The writer clearly appreciate and was moved by John B and presents an amazing portrait of a man I’d have loved to have known. None of us are polished. All of us have scars. All of us are complicated.

    Shows what climate alarmism does to people.

    This poor man, while intelligent and interesting was completely misinformed about the reality of climate change, ocean acidification, and shows how climate alarmism is tragically affecting people, of younger and younger ages, to greater effect than actual climate change. Anyone interested in the ACTUAL FACTS of climate change should Read Michael Shellenberger’s book Apocalypse Never. Or listen to the Dan Crenshaw Podcast ( Hold these truths) With the same Author. The media and climate “journalists “ have wildly skewed people perception of the facts. And podcasts like this while interesting l, highlight the dangers of such alarmism.
