"A good story sucks you in and makes you re-evaluate your own life, your own attitudes and your own preconceptions... B. Reed.

John B. McLemore, thank you for allowing us to hear your story, which after all, is the real treasure. Rest in love.

RIP to a kindred spirit.

What an amazing man you were!! I hope you Rest In Peace and know that there are millions of people who have heard your genius and wished you were still around ❤

Dear John B.
'Tedious and Brief' much too brief. Your words and thoughts of the world have touched me. Listening to your voice, I feel your presence and hope you have found peace. Though I'm sure you're still looking down on us shaking your head at the stupidity of the world. I wish I could walk through the maze with you and talk about about climate change for hours- feeling inspired that somebody actually cared for the disintegration of the planet. xoxo
Love from Chicago

I only wish you could how much of the world you opened with your voice, your story, your presence. Thank you for sharing who you were and casting a line into an ocean that you knew was there but could not see. You have hooked many souls, of which miss you even without meeting you, and deeply wish you were still here.
May you rest easy with the whole that is the universe.


I was so deeply touched by your story in a way that I did not expect. Life is but a vapor and I personally needed the reminder to use my remaining hours prudently.

Dear John,

I listened to S town recently and found myself completely captivated by your story. What an amazing human being you were. So, so smart and passionate. I wish you could see how much public adoration you have and how much we all who have listened to your story, feel connected to you. Rest easy friend.

John, your life was very inspirational to many a people as you had predicted. I've found myself listening to your story for a third time and just wish your time with us hadn't been so tedious and brief. What a burden you must have carried and unfortunate you weren't able to continue with your life goals. Rest In Peace, your worries are over and ours have just begun...
