I just started listening to this podcast which is available on Apple iTunes and Stitcher. It's a multi-episode podcast about the Heaven's Gate cult. It's pretty detailed and the host Glynn Washington was raised in a Doomsday Christian type cult and that was part of the reason he was interested in the Heaven's Gate story.
Cleopatra7 posted a topic in CultsI had known that the Heaven's Gate Website was still up in all its late 1990s tackiness, but I had always assumed that it was just another relic of the Geocities age: http://www.heavensgate.com/ However, as it turns out, the website is very much alive, and if you send emails, you can get replies, and you can buy Heaven's Gate books and VHS tapes: http://gizmodo.com/the-online-legacy-of-a-suicide-cult-and-the-webmasters-1617403237 It's interesting that the Kings haven't updated the aesthetics of the website or migrated the files from 3.5 floppy discs. I guess they want to honor the intentions of their "classmates" by keeping everything in the format they originally received it.
