So great

I love this podcast. I didn’t know what I was getting into but I’m so glad I got to know John B and his S-town. It’s an amazing story, told with empathy and kindness.
You guys make the best podcasts. Keep making them!

Can’t top it

By far, this was my most enjoyable podcast to listen to. I don’t think I’ll find one like it ever again. Must try!
