Amazing pod cast thank you so much for this great one.

I loved this series. I found myself expressing my feelings out loud in a car by myself - “no, he didn’t!” And “oh, boy” and more! John was quirky but the kind of interesting we all need to be challenged by in our everyday lives. Excellent work.

Brian Reed did an amazing job painting the picture of this story and how it played out. I could not stop listening.

One of the first, of maaany, podcasts I’ve listened and still the best. This story is beautifully told and takes you completely into the story.

Simply Outstanding. Thank you.
JennKate77 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/20/19
Thank you for doing this podcast! Macklemore became the man I annoyingly loved. With all the twists and turns the plot takes, I couldn’t turn it off. This is a surprisingly inspiring tale propelled by a grim end. It has all the feels!

I could not stop listening! And it has stayed with me.. This show was groundbreaking to me. I told my friend to listen and she did and liked it also and she said that the voice actors were really good. I told her.. no that was actually the people of the story in the story!!!! Really top notch!

One of the few podcasts I really looked forward to listening to every time I got in my car (only time I can listen) Love the narrator and the story was brilliantly portrayed. I even cried.

This podcast makes you believe it’s a true crime podcast but don’t be fooled. It’s a waste of time and never delivered on any of the build up.

The best podcast I’ve ever heard. Completely enthralled in this. I hope this becomes a movie. More people need to know about John B McLemore.
ibgabby via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/14/19
Truly, this podcast, and the ‘original mystery clock’ that is John B McLemore, is beyond description. I’ve driven ‘the long way home’ for days to absorb all that I could of Brian Reed’s incredible podcast. Laughed out loud, moved to tears, succumbed to deep and ponderous thought. Thank you John...Read full review »

I wish he knew then what we know now. Fabulously sadly wonderful
chelle6424 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 08/12/19
I spent an entire Saturday binging this podcast. Absolutely brilliant storytelling and reporting following a long, weird winding path of a genius eccentric. Thank you for pulling back the curtains to show us a piece of Americana, childhood trauma, isolation and love in rural Alabama.
shelnal via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/11/19
This was one of the best podcasts I have ever listen to! Halfway through you are asking yourself “Where are we going with this?” And then, boom! Wow... sad story but one that keeps you listening. Loved it.
BayAreaGirl59 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/10/19
This was the very first podcast I ever listened to and not only did I love it once, I’ve loved it three times so far haha. I binged it and couldn’t wait to hear the next episode. I wish y’all would do a follow up so we can see what those folks are doing now and how things changed since John’s...Read full review »

I didn’t want it to end ...
Gina Bob via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/10/19
I’ve listened to this podcast three times, and I will undoubtedly listen many more. The storytelling is phenomenal, definitely, but more than anything John B. is so fantastically fascinating you can’t help becoming completely engrossed in his magnanimous brilliance and eccentricities. Well worth...Read full review »

Really well done podcast. I’ve listened to the entire thing twice and always can’t wait for the next episode.
ThadiusPDX via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/08/19
So good!!! Really reminded me of a new play I loved listening to on audible called ‘Down With My Demons’
Hetty_Stanley via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 08/07/19
This is THE BEST podcast I’ve listened to. It’s a fantastic story, so interesting, well told and so sad but so great at the same time.
izzygmc via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 08/07/19
I had never listened to a podcast and this was my first. The story is told incredibly well and there are lessons to be learned if you really pay attention. I will likely listen to it again.
eab4253 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/07/19
By far the best podcast I’ve listened to.
Cvado via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/07/19
Hands down my favorite podcast of all time. The twists and turns along with the raw emotion makes this podcast a great listen for everyone. If I could give it more than 5 stars - I would!
nsteelman via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/06/19
This podcast ends up being something different than you thought you were getting into, but you won’t be mad about it. If a podcast could win an Oscar I’d be rooting for S-Town.
Wild_Dasia via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/04/19
What a great story!! First episode i wasn't sure if I was going to like this one, but the twist the story took hooked me. I found this so interesting to listen to while I was driving. Great job. And thank you
shann999! via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/03/19
The subject matter in and of itself is enough to keep you tuned in and captivated but the manner in which the story is unfolded is a reason to listen as well. Remarkable story with people that will leave their imprint on you whether you want that or not.
Groupon Empress via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/02/19
This is my all time favorite podcast. S-Town is a woven story of honor, honesty, trust, betrayal, mystery, greed....you name it. My only wish is that I could un-hear it so I could listen from the beginning.
Ranay D. via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/02/19
The twists and turns make for a great listen! I started and finished in a day!!
Katheine A via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/01/19
This was one of the first podcasts I ever listened to, and it was truly an amazing journey. I’ve listened to it 3 times and never gets old. It has all the highs, lows, and all the feels! Thank you!
ATL Sports Lover via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/31/19
I wish I knew John B. What a brilliant, articulate and portentous person.
eeniles via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 07/31/19
For me, this podcast set the bar. Every time I look for a new show to listen to I always have this one in the back of my mind. I love the way this story is presented to me. Any other podcast that has come after has a very high bar to get over because of this podcast.
rylergrey via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/31/19
Wow
These creators are amazing. I’ve listened to the full series of Serial and thought I’d give this a go. I wasn’t disappointed. I was wrapped up in the story, felt like I knew the “characters” and felt emotions while listening because I felt like I was there. The writing is amazing. The narrator is...Read full review »

I don’t typically listen to podcasts like this and more murder podcasts but from the very first episode I fell in love with John B and was heartbroken to hear that he committed suicide. Very well narrated and I can’t recommend listening to this enough.
BThompson2915 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/29/19
This is my favorite podcast of all time.
Jude the dude1234567890 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/29/19
Listened to all 7 hours in a day. Fell in love with John...Started out as one thing and ended up as a whole other thing. Can’t recommend enough!!
RwillA25 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/27/19
S Town is a fantastic podcast—I hated for it to end. Incredible storytelling by Brian Reed.
mepriesterwu via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/26/19
Sad that John B committed suiside. Such a brilliant misunderstood man. What a great story and true friends that cared about him and not him money. Enjoying this podcast!
Chel85 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/26/19
This very well could be the greatest podcast ever made. Find out for yourself if you haven’t given it a listen yet.
Ken_Donald via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/26/19
Finally listened to this after my friend repeatedly asked if I had listened yet. I found this podcast to be fantastic. Found myself laughing, crying or just smiling so many times while listening. I was so into the story, by the second to last episode I woke up at 5 a.m. one morning to listen,...Read full review »

Emotions everywhere. Thank you John B.

I’m a huge fan of podcasts, I’ve listened to dozens on a variety of topics. No doubt about it, this is the greatest podcast ever produced. End of story.

Such an interesting story
Mitch Lennon via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 07/24/19
I listen to mostly true crime podcasts, and many times when i think an investigative reporting podcast is veering away from the true-crime aspects of the story I become disinterested. That was definitely NOT the case, however, with this podcast. Absolutely amazing; a very compelling story would...Read full review »

I’m really glad I came across this podcast in my search for a new series. It made me laugh and it made me cry; such a great story. Unexpected and highly recommended.
MandaDe via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/23/19
So glad I stumbled upon this. I’m from Mississippi so I can relate to a lot of this
Inkie03 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/21/19
Interesting, but the journalists pronounced sentences, where most of the time his voice goes up at the end of a sentence, is not pleasant.
Brammetje de Jong via Apple Podcasts · Netherlands · 07/21/19
Captivating and completely engaging. Very well put together and has you wanting more. Hoping a movie will be made.

Nat G G via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 07/20/19
I gave up on this too soon at first having a feeling it was a wild goose chase. But it was a beautiful life story. The website should have images though as I found myself looking for more visuals! It was great, good job team! And you know what, this podcast was a lovely funeral for Jon B for all...Read full review »
