Ministry of Evil, Part 1: The Cult of Personality

Podcast available now for AMC Premiere subscribers. In the beginning, Tony and Susan Alamo were street-corner hucksters, handing out apocalyptic leaflets to hippies in Hollywood, using the horrors of war and civil unrest in the 1970s as a way to tap into the psyche of the times. Amanda Knox takes a look at the Alamos' fire-and-brimstone evangelism that sucked members into their cult and trapped them there through manipulation and exploitation. Guests include former member Carey Miller, expert and author Debby Schriver, and Ministry of Evil docu-series producers Fenton Bailey, Leslie Mattingly and Eleanor West.
