Serial: “S-Town”

I just started a new season of the Podcast called Serial.

S-Town is a new podcast from Serial and This American Life, hosted by Brian Reed, about a man named John who despises his Alabama town and decides to do something about it. He asks Brian to investigate the son of a wealthy family who’s allegedly been bragging that he got away with murder. But then someone else ends up dead, and the search for the truth leads to a nasty feud, a hunt for hidden treasure, and an unearthing of the mysteries of one man’s life.

I was hooked from the first episode. Listening to John talk about what is going on in his rural Alabama town and within his own mind (which is fascinating to) is riveting. Maybe it’s the southern drawl, the inner workings of a southern white man or the fantastic narration either way, listen to this podcast.

This is the third season of Serial. I recommend the first two seasons as well though they are a bit different from this one.
