Ep. 67- Marcus Wesson

What do you get when you mix religion, power, and a 5'9 man with dreads? You get Marcus Wesson, a religious man turned cult leader, who produced his cult from within and turning his family into victims. To end this episode on a light note, we include a segment that we did with Peter from Podstalgic so we hope you enjoy that.

Ep. 58- Shoko Asahara

Shoko Asahara founded the cult, Aum Shinrikyo, after studying multiple religions and meditative practices, taking exactly what he needed from each in order to manipulate the masses. With as many as 40,000 members worldwide, including doctors, scientists, and other intellectuals, the cult managed to develop extremely deadly chemical weapons that they would later use on innocent civilians.

Ep. 34- The Kanungu Massacre

This week is about Joseph Kibweteere, who was a Ugandan cult leader. Joseph came from a Catholic background, had run for political office in '80 and had a positive image in the community... until he met a woman named Credonia in 1989. Joseph, Credonia, and a few other fellow cult leaders formed a group called the Movement for the Restoration of the Ten Commandments. Listen as we talk about all of the crazy things that were going on in this cult and what led up to 1000 cult members deaths. Also, stay tuned until the end if you want to hear all about our vacation in London and Germany. (Pictured from left to right is Ursala, Credonia, Joseph, Father Kataribaabo)
