Sam (Bobbi Salvör Menuez) is a silent young woman living in a group home. She shuns human contact and retreats in a world of her own - until her caregiver Lydia (Liza Thorn) suddenly goes missing.

[37 mins. 56 secs.] The prolific documentary filmmaker Sam Pollard returns to the podcast for his 4th visit with the new HBO docu-series "Atlanta's Missing and Murdered: The Lost Children". Between 1979 to 1981, at least 30 African-American children and young adults disappeared or were murdered in Atlanta. Although 23-year-old Wayne Williams was prosecuted for two of the crimes, the rest of the cases were ultimately closed following his conviction in 1982. Forty years later, with the official re-opening of the case by Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms, this five-part docuseries tells the inside story of the shocking tragedy, shedding new light on the horrific killings through exclusive archival footage, unseen court documents and interviews with those closest to the children and investigation.
