    Who Was Historical Cult Leader Jim Jones | Episode 112

    Who Was Historical Cult Leader Jim Jones?

    Jim Jones is the perfect example of how a leader doesn't have a merit floor. He was one of the most persuasive and skilled narcissists as a cult leader that we have seen for a long time.

    Jim Jones, byname of James Warren Jones, was an American cult leader who promised his followers a utopia in the jungles of South America after proclaiming himself the messiah of the Peoples Temple, a San Francisco-based evangelist group. He ultimately led his followers into a mass suicide, which left more than 900 dead and came to be known as the Jonestown Massacre on November 18, 1978, represented the largest number of American civilian casualties in a single non-natural event.

    Historical Leader Score: 9.75 Out Of 30

Simulacrum of existing podcast prepared by BBC4 on the Dutch East India Co

I’ve been researching the Dutch East India Company, so my review is on this podcast alone, not the overall podcast.

There’s a BBC4 podcast on this topic which is by far more informed by experts on the topic.

I thank these guys for contributing but really they are saying the same information, missing the subtleties (it wasn’t a real monopoly an oligopoly) and therefore produce a dilutive piece of work.
