What a Creep: Reverend Jim Jones What a Creep: Reverend Jim Jones "The Jonestown Massacre" (Season 5, Episode 5)

What a Creep

Margo leads the discussion this week talking about a cult Creep--the Reverend Jim Jones who caused the deaths of over 900 people in Jonestown, Guyana in 1978. Jim began his career as a pastor from Indiana who believed in social justice. He eventually morphed into a despot who caused the ruin of countless lives and is the origin story for the expression “drank the Kool-Aid.”

What a Creep: What a Creep: "The Houston Astros" (Season 5, Episode 4)

What a Creep

Here’s the pitch: In the 2017 season, the Houston Astros used TV cameras to steal signs from opposing team’s catchers, and communicate the signs to their hitters in real-time by banging on a trash can. It sounds kinda stupid, but it’s a big deal. The Houston Astros won the World Series in 2017, due in no small part to their cheating.

Margo & Sonia are going back in time to talk about an old-school Hollywood Creep--Louis B. Mayer. He harassed women, ruined careers, helped to cover up crimes, and refused to say anything against Hitler in 1939. But wow--his motion pictures were great!

If you don’t know the name Gary Glitter, you’ve definitely heard his songs. His most popular songs are “Rock and Roll (Parts 1 and 2),” and they are used at sporting events and featured in movies all the time. It was most recently featured in the staircase dancing scene in “Joker.” He is a convicted pedophile and is in jail where deserves to be.

Margo tells the story this week and then Sonia talks about a billion who is (most likely) not a Creep. Enjoy!

Our Creep this week is one of the most successful entrepreneurs in the history of sports.  Vince McMahon is the Chairman and CEO of the WWE as well as the founder of the soon-to-be relaunched XFL. Vince is unique and one of the most recognizable CEOs in the media. He is also a total creep, asshole, and weirdo--one of the most despised people in the history of wrestling—which is saying something!
