So my wife has been listening to this podcast called S-Town. At first I thought it was just something she found, but evidently it's very popular. As a matter of fact, it's the number one podcast on iTunes. So what is this S-Town? Here's what I was able to find out about it:
S-Town is a new podcast from Serial and This American Life, hosted by Brian Reed, about a man named John who despises his Alabama town and decides to do something about it. He asks Brian to investigate the son of a wealthy family who’s allegedly been bragging that he got away with murder. But then someone else ends up dead, and the search for the truth leads to a nasty feud, a hunt for hidden treasure, and an unearthing of the mysteries of one man’s life.
Brian, a longtime This American Life producer, started reporting this story more than three years ago, when he got an email from John with the subject line “John B McLemore lives in Sh**town Alabama.”
S-Town is part of Serial Productions, a production company from Serial and This American Life.
