Fantastic

Absolutely fantastic, the best podcast I’ve ever listened to, and I’ve listened to a lot! Intriguing story and one that I’m so glad was shared. I’ve thought about it often since finishing the series

Disappointing

Started well but chapter 5 and the examination of lgbt life in the south was where the series went South. Told from a straight male perspective via one interview. The series didn’t know where to go after that and meandered through sexuality, racism and stereotype. No twists and boring end, it’s just a bunch of views on one mans life. Many people take their own life would they want the hows and why’s serialised in a podcast told by a liberal elite. No interview with the mother whose perspective in all of this was not even mentioned. Disappointing
