Ho-No-Hana Sanpogyo targeted desperate people – often housewives with sick husbands and children who were searching for any possible cure to save their loved ones. These needy people would sacrifice their life savings in exchange for the promise that their suffering would end.For every single one of these women, the true suffering was only beginning.All of them believed they were joining a religion led by the third, living saviour after Jesus Christ and the Buddha. They were grateful that this saviour was generous enough to give them his time, his energy, and his powers of healing.By the time they realized they had joined a cult led by a money-hungry businessman, it was already too late.Our Socials:TwitterFacebookInstagramWebsiteOur Guests' Socials:Brian Sheehan/TV Trivia PodcastTwitterFacebookInstagramWebsiteGreg Doiron/A Couple BotsTwitterWebsiteSourcesSources for this episode include The Foot Reading Cult of Japan by Anand N Bosmia, Apran NBosmia, and R S Tubbs, The National Public Radio, The Los Angeles Times, The Japan Times,BBC News, World Magazine, Mainichi Daily News, Pennsylvania State University Sites, andThe Chicago Tribune.

On November 18, 1978, a mass suicide in the jungles of South America shocked the entire world. A total of 909 people were killed on that fateful day, with nearly half of the kids under the age of eighteen. All of them were members of the Peoples Temple, an organization that began as an unconventional church in Indianapolis that sought to serve society’s marginalized before eventually morphing into a cult, thanks to the drug-addled mind of its founder and leader, Reverend Jim Jones. What began as an altruistic path towards an envisioned utopia ended in a harrowing tragedy – one that saw hundreds of people losing their lives at the behest of an unhinged madman who had a limitless appetite for power and control.
