January 1, 2020

[Storytime was the original name of the Podcast, before the Change]

Ordis & Nick talk about, The Branch Davidians a religious cult founded in 1959 by Ben Roden as an offshoot of the Davidian Seventh-Day Adventist Church, which had been established by Victor Houteff in the 1930s. His ideas were rejected by Adventist leaders, and in 1935, Houteff, also known as David Koresh, and his followers settled near Waco and began preparing for the Second Coming. Houteff's group eventually moved to a farm near Waco, Texas, but by 1962 Roden and his followers had taken possession of the settlement, which was known as Mt. Carmel.
