What did you guys think of Tyler wanting to speak off record after Brian discussed the consequences of speaking on the record about whether or not he had found any of the supposed gold.  I felt like they were trying to hint that there was something for him to hide.  But, of course they would.

I don't know about the whole thing.  That was part of the brilliance of the series (or listener manipulation, if you prefer) was that nothing was ever as it seemed.  Tyler, the tattoo parlor, John, the cousins... it all seemed ready to go one way then it went another.

Right.  My guess is there wasn't anything to be found.  I think he bragged about having gold, and giving it away when he died, to keep his friends around.  He spent far too much money while basically being unemployed, to have had much of anything to leave.

Probably agree with you.

I haven't listened to S-Town, yet, but I plan to. Thanks for continuing to use the spoiler tag!

I thought that Tyler was probably a worthless guy who did indeed steal a bunch of John's stuff. I mean that solely from the information presented and have no clue as to what actually happened.

At first it was amusing but as it got bigger and bigger it was like, "Hold on a second."

I'd agree with that assessment.

Current favorite podcast is "Hello From the Magic Tavern." It's these 3 guys doing improv, basically. They had me at "guy falls through a portal at a Burger King in Chicago and ends up in the magical land of Foon." It gets crazier from there.

Buttholes. So many buttholes.

I'm digging The Allusionist these days. Typically a half hour or less, it's a succinct, insightful, and often funny exploration of language. In the most recent episode she interviews someone with aphasia. Another recent episode dealt with our vocabulary for sex and all the body parts pertaining thereto.

So of course Welcome to Night Vale is probably my fave podcast. Been into it since early on. It is just so well done. And the live shows...

Alice Isn't Dead is good. Long (creepy) story form podcast. Just finished up season 2.  It is also by the Night Vale Team

Conversations with People Who Hate me, is the newest from the Night Vale team. It is Dylan Maron  speaking with people who have trolled/dragged him online.   Very insightful and well done

Now, some non Night Vale podcasts

The Thrilling Adventure Hour is great. So much talent. Really wish I would have caught onto the show in time to plan a trip to The Largo to see it live.

We Got This with Mark Gagliardi and Hal Lublin is really fun.  They answer questions that you argue about with your friends, like who was the best TV mom, or what is tre best Christmas episode. The guys are in their mid/late 30s and have similar pop culture tastes/backgrounds as me, so I really enjoy these shows

So many others, but I am tired of typing in my phone for now.   I make so many of the mistakes on this stupid tiny keyboard.

"My Dad Wrote a Porno" is hysterical. Start it at the beginning. Three 'comedians' dissect one of their Dad's attempt at writing an erotic fiction novel.

Every episode - except perhaps the second one - has elicited LOUD roars of laughter from me, together with annoyance that I never thought of this idea. The terminology 'Dad' uses makes "50 Shades" seem like bloomin' Shakespeare by comparison. I have a friend listening to this at work on headphones and she is finding it embarrassing how much she is laughing in the office at  it. I hasten to add it is (obviously) NSFW.
