On November 18 1978 Jim Jones and the Peoples Temple died in Jonestown in what is considered to be the largest mass suicide in modern history. Locked deep within an FBI vault, the tapes chronicling the history of Peoples Temple were finally made public after 20 years. From Jim Jones shady beginnings as a faith healer to that final tragic night that his loyal followers drank the Koolaide. Join us as we piece together the history of Peoples Temple and try to understand what led to their demise.

Excellent detailing of the Jonestown community and its downfall.
Eerie to hear actual recordings from the past. It was overall well done and getting to experiences the real voices of those involved was pretty surreal. I couldn't finish though, as I feel like, with a lot of podcasts, it just suffers from being way too stretched out. Also, the host's voice is the most monotone, boring thing I've ever heard. Made it sound like Charlie Brown's teacher. Certainly didn't help with the attention span.
