Mahtava matka

Loistava tarina, joka muuttuu ja muotoutuu läpi usean tyylin, dekkarista hahmotutkielmaan ja vie mukanaan niin sulavasti, että unohtaa kuuntelevansa podcastia ja näkee s-townin maailman omin silmin. S-town on kasvanut yhdeksi lempi tarinoistani ikinä, missään muodossa.

A Narrative Blend

A masterfully crafted, addictive podcast that blurs the line between fiction and non-fiction. The story, though addressed from the perspective of a reporter and loaded with facts, takes on a life of its own through John B. - the things he says and does and owns like straight out of a literary novel. S-Town is hands down the most exciting podcast I've come across all year.

Todella palkitsevaa kuunneltavaa

Alku vaatii hieman omistautumista, mutta sisältö imaisee pian mukaansa. Mielettömän kauniisti kerrottu pala maailmasta.
