Ep. 100- Jim Jones (NOT the rapper)

On this very special week, we decided to do a cult! And not just any cult, but Jim Jones' cult called the People's Temple. Now, we're sure you have heard all about Jim Jones and the Jonestown Massacre but if you haven't... well, he was a cult leader who was responsible for over 900 deaths that took place in Jonestown, Guyana on November 18th, 1978.

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.
