May 22nd: Closing The Gate
About fifteen years ago, the largest mass suicide on American soil was conducted
by the Heaven’s Gate cult in California. While most of the media attention focussed
on the events in Rancho Santa Fe, there were other connected suicides which
happened in cities around the United States. In this episode of Skepticality, Derek
speaks with Deborah Simpson, the sister of one of the Heaven’s Gate group,
Jimmy, who was living in Atlanta, GA at the time. In her new book Closing The
Gate, Simpson shares the deeply personal story of how her brother got involved
with the destructive and manipulative group. It is a rare look into some of the inner
workings and effects that such groups can have on the families of those involved.
