Episode 244 LIVE: The Manson Family

On this grimly groovy installment, Tom and Jenny travel back to the heady, hippie-filled days of 1969, when a psychopathic ex-con by the name of Charles Manson orchestrated the savage murders of several innocent people, including up and coming actress Sharon Tate. Manson’s brainwashed followers, known as the Family, had perhaps come to believe in their leader’s bizarre predictions about Helter Skelter, a coming race war that would ostensibly result in Manson and his followers running the world. Or maybe there were even more complicated motives involving money, drug dealing, and petty revenge. Put on your love beads and tune in, turn on, drop out as we talk about the infamous Manson Family and the Tate-LaBianca murders on a LIVE episode 244.

Episode Fifty-Six: Anton LaVey and the Church of Satan

Anton LaVey, infamous founder of the Church of Satan and a consummate showman, brought his particular brand of philosophical occult belief to wider acceptance in the 1960s. In its heyday, the Church of Satan boasted some notable Hollywood names and respected writers among its membership, though after the Manson Family murders of 1969, Satanism began to lose some of its rebellious allure. On this episode of 13 O’Clock, Tom and Jenny delve into the lingering legend of Anton LaVey, separating the truth from the fiction and discussing his influence on American culture throughout the 60s to the present day. Raise a horned hand in salute to episode 56.

By the way, sorry about some of the weird sound anomalies we got on this episode…must be the devil or Anton LaVey’s ghost fucking with my audio. Or hurricane voodoo. 😦
