Historically, cult leaders haven't fared too well in the eyes of well, pretty much everyone.  This show's subject, Jim Jones, may top the list of cult leaders that made a name for themselves for all the wrong reasons.  The infamous Jonestown massacre was one of the worst human tragedies in United States history.  What drove Jones to control those around him?  How was he able to get his foot in the door and begin the brainwashing of thousands of people?  What's up with those dark sunglasses?  We'll dive into these questions and more in this cult-classic episode of AHC Podcast.
