Huge thanks to the folks behind the Alternative Considerations of Jonestown Project. This podcast wouldn’t have been possible without their indispensable hard work recording, organizing, and transcribing the Peoples Temple tapes and other source materials. For further information about Jonestown, you can’t do better than their website. I did my best to tell the story here as I understand it, but if you ask me the work they’re doing will lead to a fundamental future reassessment of what happened.
