Atlanta Monster Podcast

Overall I think this was a good podcast. I first heard about the Atlanta Child Murders from the CNN special with Soledad O’Brien in 2010. This podcast and the HBO special uncovered a lot of information that I did not know about Wayne Williams and the whole case. I think is is really heartbreaking that the murders did not really get the proper attention until a lot of children were already killed. It also was clear that many of the families never received closure because Atlanta simply needed this to go away because it was bad for business. I like that the podcast lets the viewer decide for the self innocence or guilt. While I do not believe that Wayne killed all of these kids and the fiber evidence was shaky, I do not believe he is innocent. He at least killed the adult victims he was charged for. Looking forward to listening to the next season of the monster series.

Great Podcast

Never knew the whole story about the Atlanta murder. Good investigating and story telling...love the 80s music to the intro.

Rip to your headphones and speakers

Good podcast. Won’t listen to anymore though because of the terrible volume control when ads play.
