Porkins Policy Radio ep. 28 California Cults with Aaron Franz

From Scientology to the Peoples Temple, the state of California is awash in prominent and powerful cults.  Our good friend Aaron Franz joins us to discuss this bizarre phenomenon.  We discuss several high-profile cults in the state and how they have influenced the people and culture of California.  Aaron and I break down Scientology and explore how a cult whose membership is made up mostly of high profile celebrities has become a powerful culture creator within society.   Aaron explains how groups such as The Process Church and The Summit Lighthouse use occult teachings within their cult when indoctrinating their members.  We also discuss how this is really the corruption of the occult for nefarious purposes.  Aaron and I also go into Jim Jones and The Peoples’ Temple, discussing how one cult leader was able to change the face of politics in San Fransisco.  We end by talking about yoga and veganism, and how both of these fads are also not only misunderstood, but are being used in a negative way.  This was an especially fun episode to record and is also filled with quite a bit of humor.

NOTE: My apologies for the audio issues through out the episode.  We had some internet connection problems.
