S-Town is a podcast hosted by Brian Reed from Serial Productions, a New York Times company. The story follows 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 when someone else ends up dead, 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.
“If you keep your mouth shut, you’ll be surprised what you can learn.”
“Has anybody called you?”
“Tedious and brief.”
“If anybody could find it, it would be me.”
“Nobody’ll ever change my mind about it.”
“Since everyone around here thinks I’m a queer anyway.”
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.
