Keep listening - starts good and gets better

Might be the best podcast I’ve ever listened to. If you think you know what this podcast will be like from reading the description, do yourself a favor and keep an open mind as you listen. It’s not easy to get through some of the earlier episodes bc they are so raw and despairing in a way. But as it goes on you’ll be drawn into Stoney’s life/family, in a way you never expected. Try to put down your stereotypes about the South and let yourself be touched by this story.
To the folks who gave negative reviews: this is real life. Even killers are real people with sons they love. Their lives are complicated just like ours. Billy Sunday Birt did unspeakably horrible things and the podcast doesn’t sugarcoat them or excuse them, not in the least. It just shows him as a real person.

I’m from Douglasville, GA

So cool to hear some history about my town, my friends’ towns, and all the rivers and roads I could picture as they were described. As a person from a large family (folks from my town know the Danley’s—my mom’s side), I could feel this story deeply as one of a family. So nice. Thank you so much for this series.

So good

This is hands down one of the best podcasts I have ever listened to. Too 5 easy. It’s a work of art. My ears were glued to every word Stoney was saying. This is an incredible true story. I highly recommend this to anyone who wants to learn about “The Dixie Maffia” and Billy Sunday Birt.
