ARTISTFIRST.COM Interview on August 2, 2011

I had a great interview with Tony Kay on artistfirst.com yesterday. It was an unusual interview for me because he didn’t just talk about the specific details about November 18, 1978. He actually asked me about who I am, what I was thinking, what I had experienced before joining Peoples Temple. Sometimes after interviews, I feel very drained. My whole point of talking about my experience is to humanize the experience, kind of read between the lines of the media reports, and talk about others who had made the same decision to join. So, interviews can get away from me and focus on the part already publicized – how mentally ill Jim was, or how we all were. It was a thoughtful interview and I appreciated both Tony Kay and the 89 of you who wrote emails. As always, I love questions. So, keep them coming!
