    Bonus Episode 29 - Another View of Jonestown pt. 3, or, Brigades of Armed Men, Red or Otherwise, feat. Marcus

    (Part 3 of 3)

    Today I'm joined by Marcus from 'the Return of the Repressed' podcast to discuss Jim Jones and Jonestown. We discuss further the People's Temple connections to Synanon and related groups, sus Indiana, the Jonestown Red Brigades, Jim Jones' schizophrenic positions on geopolitics, Guyanese politics, normie ass takes on cults, and a few interesting tangents. To finish, we discuss alternate theories to the Jonestown mass casualty event, the ever-important question, "where did the money go?", and our lack of clear conclusions.

    Check out Marcus's podcast, the Return of the Repressed!

    (Part 2 of 3)

    Today I'm joined by Marcus from 'the Return of the Repressed' podcast to discuss Jim Jones and Jonestown. Marcus walks us through Jim Jones's early career, his psychiatric history, Guyanese history and anthropology, the Ukiah era, welfare scams, drug rehabs, several more interesting topics, and my personal favorite: the very curious crossover between Jones's ministry, the Mendocino State Hospital, Emmanuel Swedenborg, and Herb Mullin. Oh, and the first school shooter in the US.

    Bonus Episode 27 - Another View of Jonestown pt. 1, or, When Group Therapy Goes Wrong, feat. Marcus

    (Part 1 of 3)

    Today I'm joined by Marcus from 'the Return of the Repressed' podcast to discuss Jim Jones and Jonestown. We discuss the 'known unknowns' with regards to Jonestown. Marcus walks us through the many early reactions to Jonestown which seem to nail it on the head, including those near to Representative Leo Ryan. We talk about the 'mystery tape'. Then, we lay the groundwork for understanding Jonestown by delving into the religious background of the Jones church including the Branhamites, the Latter Rain movement, and the curious crossover between these religious groups and cults across the world, especially in Africa.

    Unlocked from the Patreon: 

    Today's the third of four horror movies for CrackpotoberFest 2022 - Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myers (1995) aka Halloween 6. I'm joined by Blauer (@blauer_geist) to discuss the film. Blauer helps me walk us through the plot to Halloween 6, the cult of Thorn, and especially contextualizes the film within the Halloween franchise as a whole. Then, I discuss the Matamoros cult in relation to the film, and hopefully point out some things which go under-discussed when Matamoros comes up.
