JOHN DESPISES HIS ALABAMA TOWN AND DECIDES TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT. HE ASKS a reporter 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, sparking a nasty feud, a hunt for hidden treasure, and an unearthing of the mysteries of one man’s life.

Anyone else checked this podcast out? Apparently it's reached 40 million downloads already. I think the less you know about it the better until you have listened to the first two.

I'm not quite sure why it's so compelling, I've just binged the whole thing in one day. I think it's partly because it's real not fiction and so much was actually recorded so you hear the actual conversations from the people involved.

I recommend it and it's free.
