One of my Favorites George Stroumboulopoulos " The Hour"

While watching “The Hour” a few weeks ago I heard Stephan Jones being interviewed by George Stroumboulopoulos. I am amazed at how resilient Stephen is, having lived through the Jones Town massacre as the son of the late cult leader Jim Jones. At the end of his interview he said, although not verbatim “that religion is for those who are afraid to go into hell; spirituality is for those who have lived there and survived!” Anyone with a curiosity about Stephan Jones the son of a horrific man can go to here and watch the interview. During the seventies I was immersed in books about cults, today I find it interesting to hear Stephan’s adult perspective of his experience as the son of a cult leader! There is a fairly recent documentary circulating called “Don’t Drink the Kool-aid”!

George Stroumboulopoulos hosts “The Hour” foraging interesting bits of information from his remarkable interviews by asking the tough questions. I find myself anticipating his nightly program! Not shy of controversy his blog carries some interesting information! For a Canadian perspective on world events and celebrity check out some past interviews on youTube!

Wow. That's really interesting. The Jones Town Massacre is such a strong memory for me and I remember reading a book about it as a teenager. It's really scary to think what fear can lead us to do. I'll be sure to watch that interview here in a bit. Thanks for sharing it.
