Waco: The Branch Davidian Cult and the Siege at Mount Carmel | 165

It’s back into the world of cults this week as we take on Waco part Deux, the return of the Vernon Wayne Howell aka David Koresh,the septuagenarian buggering wannabe rock-star turned sinful messiah. We are focusing on the siege that ended in the death of 76 people, including several children. Was it mishandled? Who is to blame? What happened to the survivors? Janet Reno didn’t return our calls, But Kevin Crispin and JTR Brown sure did, so they are back to help us break this all down.
