UPC: Episode 015: “Patty, Get your Gun: The Story of a Kidnapped and Brainwashed American Heiress”


In this shocking episode of Unpopular Culture, Michael dives deep into a disturbing case of Stockholm Syndrome (or so it seems). Patty Hearst was an American heiress born in the 1950’s, whose actions following her own kidnapping left most of America confused and horrified. Many did not believe her eventual claims of being brainwashed and tortured for almost 60 days by the SLA, because of the videos released of her spewing her captor’s propaganda messages like“Death to America” and even ROBBING A BANK with her captors in 1974 in the Sunset District of San Francisco.

In this episode: licensed psychotherapist, Michael Drane, discuss how being brainwashed works, and how to avoid letting it turn you into a blindly-obedient minion.
