Warm Up: Waco
All Things Waco
Sharing thoughts on the new Waco mini-series on Netflix. Plus the 2 books and several podcasts I listened to about it.
The TV series is available on Netflix now.
Podcasts covering it on one episode: Crime Writers On – discussed and reviewed the mini-series.
The Time Suck podcast covers different topics each episode. The host did one episode about Waco and it’s pretty thorough and lengthy.
Before watching the series I wasn’t familiar with Waco. I associated it with a cult, but had no idea what actually happened so it was shocking.
The Waco Doc – Wow. Shocking.
Stalling for Time – Good book, but only one part about Waco.
Waco book – I had so many questions for the Waco survivor. I think he still thinks the cult leader is God?
Main Event starts at 21:17
