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.

Customer Reviews

Production is a bit much

Good narration. It's very good information but the music is jarring; edging towards sensationalist. Audio footage can be long and as such it's easy to lose the narrative line.


When I was 11 years old, my church had a showing of The Guyana Tragedy starring Powers Booth at one of the services and it traumatized me. I remember the news footage of all the bodies and I have this overwhelming need to understand what happened. This podcast has the FBI tapes from Jonestown. It is fascinating and insightful. There is more to this tragedy than meets the eye and this podcast is a must for anyone who wants to know more about the People’s Temple and Jonestown.

A mindbending journey!

Be prepared to bust out the nightlight after listening, because you're going to need it! The feeling behind this podcast is tangible, in the form of the hairs on the back of your neck, as the music and audio clips take this experience from documentary into full-blown audio adventure. From the spiritual to the political, from the blossoming of hopes to the edging miasma of paranoia and fear, no stone is left unturned and what lies beneath them will leave you questioning everything.
