Charles Manson NOW (2011) - Excellent book and excellent guest Marlin Marynick

True Crime Uncensored with Burl Barer & Mark Boyer

From 2011: When we think of Charles Manson, the picture of him with his wild eyes is the image most often called to mind. That was, however, not only several years ago, it was several decades ago. Manson is still a paranoid schizophrenic who receives no mental health medication or treatment in prison, and has spent most of his years in solitary confinement, which doesn't bother him -- he's used to it. Marlin Marynick, a nice chap from Regina (that's in Canada),  somehow captured Charlie's attention.and not in a bad way. The result: a new book CHARLES MANSON NOW.  The book is excellent, and Marlin was a fun guest on the radio show I do with Don Woldman.
