    ENCORE: The Atlanta Child Murders Pt 2

    ENCORE: The Atlanta Child Murders Pt 2

    Wendy & Beth are taking a break this week, so please enjoy this episode from 2020, The Atlanta Child Murders Pt 2 (look for Pt 1 in your feed).
    Today we are talking about the Atlanta Child Murders. Between 1979 and 1981, children and teenagers were disappearing off the streets of Atlanta, later turning up dead, terrifying the entire city. At least 28 people in the Atlanta area, most of them young black boys and teenagers, were kidnapped and murdered.
    This case is complicated. So to do it justice, we felt we had to turn it into a two parter. We encourage you to check out our show notes for additional information about the case.

Lashe123 ,

Perfectly blended

This cast is one of my favorites. They have blended regional history, true crime, and humor all in one place! Wendy and Beth(shout out to Beths sis) understand the importance of sharing these stories in an educational way and don’t let negative Nancys disrupt that. Great job ladies.

Ang11111112345 ,

Not to the point

Sad that it took 30 mins of skipping to finally get to the actual story

mrhoskins ,

Would’ve been good

They talk too much about other issues and don’t start the show. One had an annoying voice like she’s talking through her nose. Good content just too much other stuff going on about race and about their personal lives. Please don’t follow this show. You’ll spend 10-20 mins hearing about how their week went.
