Patty Hearst: Brainwashing, Cyanide Bullets, and an Heiress-Turned-Terrorist 

BADLANDS

Before Patty Hearst appeared as an actress in John Waters' movies, she captivated America on the silver screen as a hostage terrorized by the Symbionese Liberation Army. When the newspaper heiress was kidnapped by the radical organization in 1974, the country sympathized with her plight. But after just a few months, the SLA’s guns weren’t pointing at Patty anymore; suddenly, Patty was firing her own weapons during fistfights and bank robberies as a member of the same terrorist group that once kept her locked in a closet. In court, Patty claimed she was brainwashed and that she played along for her own safety. It’s true that Patty Hearst gave the performance of a lifetime — but we still don’t know which part of her life was the performance.This episode contains themes that may be disturbing to some listeners, including graphic depictions of violence.Follow Badlands wherever you get your podcasts to hear new episodes of Hollywoodland each Wednesday.

Episode 85: Patty Hearst Part 2

Not Today

We start off part 2 where we left off, at the beginning of what was the longest shootout in LAPD history. The SLA are cornered, and Patty is still at large with Bill and Emily Harris. Unsurprisingly, the shooutout does not end well for the SLA, but Bill, Emily, and Patty continue to escape capture for over a year after this. This party crosses state lines, and by party I mean domestic terrorism. It culminates in their most grotesque forms of "activism" with a new cast of characters. Will anyone be held accountable?

Patty Hearst, the granddaughter of media magnate William Randolph Hearst, is kidnapped by the Symbionese Liberation Army, a revolutionary marxist "army". She was used in order to force her family to donate food to those in need. It was a story like no other at the time, and to make it even more sensational, Patty seemed to begin taking the side of her captors?

They just need to take a risk and put Patty on the stand.
