Atlanta Monster

4.5/5

Critic Rating

From the producers of Up and Vanished, Tenderfoot TV and HowStuffWorks present, 'Atlanta Monster.' This true crime podcast tells the story of one of the city’s darkest secrets, The Atlanta Child Murders. Nearly 40 years after these horrific crimes, many questions still remain. Host Payne Lindsey aims to find truth and provide closure, reexamining the disappearance and murder of over 25 African American children and young adults.


Critic Reviews

Score: 4.5

Nicholas Quah • Vulture Jan 19, 2018

"...he podcast is at its most interesting when it’s explicitly a show about race in the city of Atlanta. The show also excels when it’s operating as a document of people remembering the past. The interviews make for a vivid, wonderful Greek chorus, corroborating but also occasionally debating the horrors in question. The narration has the tendency to be more than a little heavy-handed — I’d prefer much less hand-holding — and the show is far too committed to the blaring use of synth-heavy, Stranger Things–inspired music cues that are frankly distracting."
