The 1960s' darkest moment


Larry Brand, creator Hollywood and Crime’s “Young Charlie” podcast, explores the moment the free love movement of the 1960s shattered in two with the coinciding Manson murders.

On “Salon Talks” Brand uses what he calls the decade’s darkest moment to talk about the cosmic irony that came to define the decade of free love. Brand sees the juxtaposition as a cultural reminder to the peace generation that felt superior to the conformity of their parents’ era. Looking back, what parallels does he draw to today? Check out the full episode to hear more about Manson’s childhood and the inspiration behind the hit “Young Charlie” podcast.
