s2 e12 — KALOMT’E K’ABEL and SUSAN ATKINS: the Mayan queen and the Manson girl Notorious Women

    • Comedy

This week, Lavetta covers the remarkable and little known Mayan Queen, Kalomt’e K’abel; and Miriam covers the bonkers story of “Manson Girl” Susan Atkins.
----- 
In this episode, Lavetta introduces Kalomt’e K’abel (Mesoamerican, 7th century–702 or 711), the queen of the Wak Kingdom during the Mayan civilization. Lady K'abel was given a higher rank and status than her spouse, and together they ruled El Perú, a vassal town of Calakmul, and she led armies against the city of Tikal. Her tomb was discovered in 2012. Next, Miriam introduces murderer Susan Atkins (American, 1948–2009), a member of the Charles Manson Family who was involved in the Tate-LaBianca murders, and convicted for her participation in eight of nine Manson killings. The hosts discuss Atkins' life and actions, her disruptive behavior in court, her lack of remorse, and her death, and they compare Atkins' choices to those of Linda Kasabian (who received immunity for her testimony as a key witness in the Manson trials) and emphasize the importance of making different choices. They also reflect on the cultural shifts of the 1960s and the influence of Hollywood.
