Description

Forty years ago, on Nov. 18, 1978, 914 members of a ‘utopian’ society deep in the Guyana jungle, known as Jonestown, drank a lethal elixir of Flavor-Aid and cyanide. Tim Carter was in the inner circle of its charismatic leader, Jim Jones. He escaped into the jungle. This is his story.

Pretty abysmal

I’ve read and watched extensively about Jonestown and this podcast barely scratches the surface. I find the production potentially insulting to the survivors and victims. What’s with the cheesy song half way through?
The producers neglected to include that there were many guns on Jonestown and the victims were held at gunpoint while drinking poison.
The professor who lost her sisters in the massacre sounds snooty.
A rather sensationalized production.
You are better off using credits on “Seductive Poison” and “The Road to Jonestown” if you want to know more details.

Damn good

Don’t listen to the other reviewer. This is a damn good series on Jonestown. Not super in depth but great as an intro or as another source.

Also for audible members it’s free, so ignore the comment about wasting your credit in other review.
