Amazing story-telling

Amazing story-telling, once you start you can not stop listening. I applaud the creators for an excellent job on both, Serial and S-town.

Great and surprising

I expected this to be a crime podcast, something like Serial, but it really does go in directions you don't see coming. A wonderful portrait of an extraordinary person.
