This is Stown for snooze town. I Am Soooo Struggling To Get Through This! Who cares. It is so boring!

This really is a prime example of bait and switch. They lured listeners in with the promised of investigative reporting and switched to a platform in which to deliver a peek into the tortured life of a mildly interesting suicidal redneck. At best, it is one man’s tribute to a professional source turned friend; And at worst, it was a lame attempt to regain use of literally hours of useless recordings. It is an insight into a world that does not elevate man but reduces him. The only saving grace is that, in true journalism style, the narrator strives to remain neutral. I introduced S-Town to my friends by saying I just wasted hours of my life that I’ll never get back.

I disagree. Time well spent. Keeps me thinking for hours after each episode. Leaves a lasting impression. A lot of people do not hear stories similar to this one especially in that part of the country.

This is pretty much100% spot on. They kept introducing things that went nowhere. Totally not what was advertised.

Wow, I couldn’t disagree more. I found it to be a fascinating character study of a brilliant, eccentric, and strangely noble man, John B., as well as a look into a rural southern experience. I’ve spent a great deal of time thinking about all of it and will probably listen again.
