tom barret I disagree. I kept wondering which cult it was, how he got out, etc. Telling this added to the story for me.

tom barret i disagree, I think the presenter's personal experience with a cult really helps to humanize the people involved.

I can't believe they hid her mothers death, and then not even stay to explain.

intergalactic nonsense.. the perfect description for the gullibility of some people. It's baffling how anyone could fall for this. Granted aliens are more likely than gods

Really enjoyed the podcast but I wish it would have moved a little quicker. A lot of filler and musical interludes. Besides that great job.

So amazing. Thank you to everyone on the team to make this happen, and to everyone who spoke about Heaven's Gate. I've heard about this group from many podcasts, and so many of them gloss over the beliefs of Heaven's Gate, over who the Class really was. They deserve to be remembered as people who found their place and did everything they could to keep it. They have truly reached the Next Level.

Sadie Gruber I was making a crude joke first of all, but it was funny to me that you said they reached the next level. I think we all know they got it way wrong, same with koresh, Berg, etc. but hey at least they died happy and believing in something.

Matt Sutch They had a true belief. It's no stranger for them to take their lives than for any other martyr from any other religion. Applewhite believed it as well, unlike many other cult leaders. I don't deny the pain they caused in doing so.
