Circuit Judge Donald L. McMillan Jr. has signed an order setting an Oct. 16 trial date for 26-year-old Tyler Goodson of Woodstock.  At this same hearing Judge McMillan also also set Sept. 19 as the date to hear a request by Goodson’s attorneys to move the trial out of Bibb County.

This request is being made due to the significant popularity of the internet podcast “S-Town”.  According to Podtrac.com,  which provides the podcast industry’s only ranking of top publishers, now ranks the “S-Town” podcast as having received 58 million streams and downloads since it was first released less than five months ago.

At the Sept. 19 hearing, Goodson’s attorneys are expected to request the move of the trial to another county due to the immense popularity of the podcast.  It will be the basis for a claim that the “S-Town” podcast’s popularity makes it impossible for Goodson to receive a fair trial in Bibb County.

Being the most popular podcast in history has made the Town Of Woodstock in north Bibb County, arguably the most famous small town in the United States.   Community leaders in Woodstock, or “S-Town” as it was called in the podcast, have wisely seized upon this unsolicited popularity with a music festival called Woodstock MUSIC Festival.   It is set for Saturday, September 23rd, 2017 and it looks as though many people may once again find themselves traveling to a place called Woodstock for a music FREE music festival!

 Well, at least 58 million people know where it is!

I wonder if I should bring a change of cloths.  {:-{)}
