I loved S-Town, the new podcast by the folks from Serial and This American Life.
What a fabulous 7 episode storytelling experience.
My experience of listening to S-Town was so very very very close to listening to a novel via audiobook.
I shared my love of All The Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr on E.E.E. Volume 5
. Reading that book took me to a different world. There were multiple stories, that were interweaved together, that spanned many years. Such an incredible novel!
I was immersed in the characters and their world.
S-Town did that for me. The depth of everything was so much! The way so many themes were layered into this story of humanity was incredible.
I could dive deep into each episode and have conversations about human nature, life, death, meaning, joy, pain, and everything in between.
Just lovely. For me, it was a deeply human experience. I enjoyed it greatly.
