Ep. 100 Heaven’s Gate: The Elephant Walk

July 15, 2019

This is one important Monday for us. We're dropping our 100th episode, starting our series on one of the most infamous cults in history, and launching our Patreon! But let's take it slow and start with this week's episode. Join us as Mando takes Paige and Andrea through the life and times of Marshall Herff Applewhite and his platonic partner, Bonnie Nettles. To find out how the group became what it did we have to start at the very beginning and look at the backgrounds of this cult's founders. Before they were "Ti and Do" they were two kids from Texas just trying to do The Elephant Walk and look to the stars!

Also, we're going to be completely honest with you, the last 8 minutes are entirely about Australian spiders and it's both hilarious and terrifying to anyone who hates spiders. (Not allegedly. Definitely.) So, get your flamethrowers ready. We're headed to Australia, baby.
