Welcome back to Death by Champagne, the podcast here to keep you up at night! This week Mack starts us off with our very first cult! She covers Victor Barnard, the leader of the River Road Fellowship; his rise to cult leadership, his disgusting sex crimes, and his downfall. Liv takes us to London for a really recent Buzzfeed Investigates topic covering the dangers of GHB in the gay community. How predators are using GHB, the very heartbreaking death of Gerhard Venter, and what his husband Ashley Chaplain is doing to find answers and closure.
This episode contains foul language, topics regarding murder, really graphic details regarding rape, child rape, and discussions about date rape drugs. We’ll do our best to stay on track, but the bottles are popped!
