    S-Town podcast

    AKA the new Serial
    I listened to part 1 today in my car. At first I had my doubts, but now I'm hooked. I'm almost looking forward to driving to Kansas next week so I can binge the rest of it.

    Ok I'm finished. Not sure what I think, except I love the graphics designed for S-town and I'd like to buy a mug with it.

    Mostly I felt bad for John B. and certainly a bit of a vouyeir (sp?). I can't decide to John would have been happy to have his story out there...or pissed. I think it spoke volumes about some of the smaller southern towns.

    Still thinking...

    ps- I love that he refers to a Rose For Emily. One of my favorite short stories. EVAH.

    S-Town podcast

    I'm originally from another small town a little over an hour away. About ten minutes in I started worrying what was going to happen to John after the locals heard the broadcast. (I mean, he went ALL-IN..) Which should have clued me in right there.

    Who the hell does it THAT way, though? Jesus.

    But given all that, I'm pretty sure he wanted other people to hear.
