What Audience Members are Saying...

“I expected a crime show similar to Serial but what emerged was a mini bio about one of the most fascinating characters I have ever encountered.”
“Only on the third episode and it’s already made me laugh, left me in shock, and brought me to tears.”
“Change the names of the people and places in this story and it could easily be my hometown in East Texas. I’m fascinated with every person in this story... I would listen to a daily podcast about these people’s lives.”
“I often feel kind of dirty after I binge-consume any media, but after spending my day immersed in Woodstock, AL, I feel like I just finished a classic novel. The combination of reporting, storytelling, production, and scoring of this peaceful was artful. The story is very much secondary to the character sketch, and it’s not fast paced, but really... it’s perfect.”
