Anyone here listened to the Shittown podcast from This American Life?
I have finished the first two and I don't know that it is worth going on.→
[More:] I have read a lot of praise for it and people have called it a true crime story but before the end of the first episode it became clear this is not about a murder but about one man's mental health.
After the second episode I find I am not liking host Brian Reed's presentation much and and it seems this will be a dissection of a troubled man's life and death.
That is not in itself bad but I feel like John McLemore reached out to a broadcaster as a lifeline and I can see this getting very exploitive very quickly.
My dislike of the host might not change but I can live with that. I don't however, want to spend another 5 hours on exploitation.
