So unique

This podcast is so unique in that it goes in a direction you will never see coming. Amazing story telling & a view into small town life in the south. Loved every moment of this podcast.

Unlike anything I’ve every experienced

I have listen to this podcast over 5 times now. The storytelling is phenomenal and I get something different from the show each time I listen. To understand and be apart of this story in even such a small way, is such an amazing feeling. And that’s what Brain Reed does; makes you feel like you are right there, discovering and dissecting John’s life. Highly, highly recommend the show. It will forever be a podcast that I can turn on when I’m feeling lonely or just need the company of familiar friends.
