2/26/18 Surviving Branch Davidian David Thibodeau recalls the Waco Massacre 25 years later

Scott interviews surviving Branch Davidian David Thibodeau on the 25 year anniversary of the Waco Massacre and the new TV miniseries partly based on Thibodeau’s book, “A Place Called Waco.” Thibodeau discusses the merits of the television show, gives his personal history of how he joined the Branch Davidians, and explains how David Koresh attracted people from all over the world with his biblical teachings. Thibodeau describes the day of the raid and how the crucial pieces of evidence that corroborate the Davidians’ stories were “lost.” Scott then prompts Thibodeau: “Tell me about the fire.” Thibodeau concludes with what he’s learned from his experience, reflections, and review of the evidence that’s been uncovered in the years since the tragedy.

David Thibodeau is a surviving member of the Branch Davidians and the author of A Place Called Waco. A new television miniseries, Waco is based in part on Thibodeau’s book.
