On this episode, we speak with author, podcaster, and musician Adam Gorightly about his book The Shadow Over Santa Susana: Black Magic, Mind Control, and the Manson Family Mythos, one of my favorites. We talk about many different facets of that fascinating American cultural phenomenon, the Manson Family, and its possible connection to intelligence agencies, various other cults, and American culture at large. It was a ton of fun to speak with Adam, and we really thank him for taking the time to come on the show with us. Enjoy!

      nonsense. find “charles manson superstar” and watch it. once you get your head round how he talks after years of chemical koshes, he actually makes a lot of sense. the fascination lies in the way the manson family story is emblematic of the fall from innocence that characterised the shift from late 60s hippy culture to the cynicism of the 70s.
