    Pleasantly surprised

    I started this at the same time I was watching the show Reacher, which takes place in a small, corrupt southern town. I was ready to be doubly dismayed by the small-minds in power, ruling with racism, misogyny, and xenophobia. I was confused but also delighted when I realized that this wasn’t so much a dive into shameless corruption by “God-fearing Christians,” but much more of a character study of one unique, bizarre, fascinating person, and the people involved in his life, and death. Brian Reed has such an amazing capacity to *not* show bias or judgement- his openness comes across in his words, tone, and apparently in his face and demeanor. People trusted a reporter from New York, and genuinely opened up to him. I’m finished it and I miss it already.

    ALL of the episodes were riveting! What a strange, sad, idiosyncratic, funny and insightful character. But the Final Episode absolutely STUNNED me!! I reflected on this podcast for weeks, months afterwards. Americans are indeed a very unique lot.

    Lack of effort

    There seems to be an issue with researching stories. Time and time again they portray opinions as fact.

    Thank you, I cried.

    Waow. Where do I start. Well written, amazingly produced. I broke down crying and I ran to twitter and google to look it up, hoping it were fiction, it wasn’t and I just sobbed! I recommend this to everyone out there. This is worth every single second. Poignant, stunning, and simply brilliant. THANK YOU!

    This was a wonderful, captivating podcast. These characters came to life under the skillful professionalism of the host. John B. Tyler. Rita. Uncle Jimmy. So vivid. The podcast delved into the productive use of one’s time on this earth. I consider those 7 hours I listened to be time very well spent. Thank you.

    Such a great podcast

    This was the first podcast I had ever listened to. It’s sad that John B. never realized how much he touched peoples lives.

    Heart breaking

    Listened much later than the world. Found it after having enjoyed Trojan Horse affair so much. I didn't know what to expect, the first episode was a bit dense -so much information coming in -but I loved it so much I finished within 3 days. I wept, hand to heart, laughed and a bit of shock too. The spiderweb of connections one individual life has and exploring the impact of one person on their lives was touching and also so sad. It was a beautifully told story, well explored and well respected.

    Second listen, just as good.

    I’ve listened to this story twice now. It’s so complex, interesting and slightly tragic. I love the storytelling.

    Compelling Story with a Twist

    After listening The Trojan Horse Affair I wanted to see what else Brian Reed has done and found this. For me the first episode was not easy to get through with John B rambling on, then by episode 2 I was eager to see how the story unraveled. I found myself very engaged with the people in the story, thinking about them and caring about them. I credit this to how Brian is with these people. The story was very alive with details and emotion, I was a bit sad to come to the end.
