Deep and unexpected

I almost stopped listening to this podcast half way through the first episode. Thank goodness I didn’t. Maybe one of the best stories I have ever heard. So artfully told. Deep and unexpected. Really incredible and fascinating, I loved it.

Not at all what I was expecting!

I listened to S Town after bingeing all of Serial. It was not at all what I expected but wow was it ever addictive. I got pulled right into John B’s life - what a shame he ended it. I cried during the episode Brian found out, absolutely heartbreaking what mental illness does. He was absolutely brilliant and could’ve easily had a podcast of his own! RIP John B.
