"STown" (also written as "S-Town") is a serialized non-fiction podcast produced by the creators of "Serial" and "This American Life". The podcast tells the story of John B. McLemore, an eccentric and reclusive horologist (a person who studies and repairs clocks and watches) from Woodstock, Alabama, who contacts the host, Brian Reed, to investigate a potential murder in his hometown. However, as the story unfolds, it becomes clear that there is much more to McLemore and the town of Woodstock than initially meets the eye. The podcast delves into issues such as social class, mental health, family dynamics, and the complicated legacy of a small southern town. "STown" was released in its entirety on March 28, 2017, and quickly became a cultural phenomenon, garnering critical acclaim and millions of listeners worldwide.
