Pure Murders and Mysteries podcast: Episode 7, “Bohemian Grove”
This week, we’re tackling the super-secret society of Bohemian Grove. Set amongst the Redwoods every summer, some of the world’s wealthiest and most influential men gather for two weeks of carefree partying and decades-old rituals.
But thanks to its secretive nature, the society had been riddled with conspiracy theories linking it to murder, the occult, prostitution, and illegal logging (just to name a few).
Notable political members of the club have been the Bush’s, Ronald Reagan, Nixon, and Kissinger. But if you’re hoping to become a member yourself, you’ll need $25,00 up front and a lot of patience, because the waiting list is decades long.
Brad, Lindi, and Jasmine discuss the follow in “Bohemian Grove”:
- The truth and origin of Bohemian Grove
- Some of the group’s most notable members
- The controversial opening ceremony—the Cremation of Care
- The conspiracies about murder, the occult, and illegal logging that plague the society
- A discussion on what really goes on there
