Great episode, i had never heard of this incident until i listened to this. You two should do an episode on the Waco Siege at some point too.

Very interesting story. I was born in Philly and my parents lived there and remember this happening. I find it a little unnerving though that Josh and Chuck seemed like they weren't trying to offend anyone even though this group clearly exploited and abused children
