Episode 31 – Dianne Lake

It was fifty years ago, that Charles Manson assembled a group of young followers and set up a commune

in Southern California. Mirroring the energy of the era, Manson an ex-convict became an aspiring

musician who began preaching messages of peace and love. His charisma made it possible for him to

attract young followers into his inner circle. But no one could have predicted that some of his peace-

loving followers would turn into America’s most horrifying group of cold-blood killers.
