RATING
The host handled the topic with a perspective I haven't seen before. It's easy to label the followers of cults as insane or deluded, that they're an other. The stories, interviews and recordings featured in the podcast reveal how human they were, and tells their story with compassion and empathy.
The subject matter was interesting - about a cult that caused many to lose their lives, and those effected by it. It just felt so inconsistent; a total slog in some places, sad and interesting in others. Felt like it could have been cut in half and that would have produced a better listen.
This is about the people involved in this heartbreaking story and the people who were affected by it. Excellent storytelling. Highly recommended.
Really interesting look into the history of the Heaven's Gate cult. Interesting insight into the nature of cults in general, too.
