What a Creep
Season 5, Episode 5
Reverend Jim Jones “The People’s Temple”
Margo leads the discussion this week talking about a cult Creep–the Reverend Jim Jones who caused the deaths of over 900 people in Jonestown, Guyana in 1978. Jim began his career as a pastor from Indiana who believed in social justice. He eventually morphed into a despot who caused the ruin of countless lives and is the origin story for the expression “drank the Kool-Aid.”
Then Sonia talks about a person related to the Jonestown event who is NOT a Creep.
