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.

This sensation is utterly brilliant. I love how, in episode 1, climate change and environmental matters are discussed. These types of things, in the arts, greatly inspire me. Sadly this is a true story and John was a real guy…. listen to the podcast and start getting an idea about “real” America.
It is also a brilliant view of the profound horror and despair people feel about what is happen in the environment, our society, our culture, our world. John shared that until he couldn’t anymore. Much like Michael C Ruppert who took his own life on April 13, 2014. You don’t have to be in a deeply depressed state to feel that way. You simply have to be AWARE.
