011 SOMETHING CAN’T BE EVERYTHING

A story of consciousness, love, and magick in vintage Hollywood.

Robin Baker dreamed of becoming a Hollywood starlet. As a teenager in the 60s, she became a Whisky a Go Go dancer, socializing with famous actors and musicians. After meeting and marrying Jim Baker, a World War II veteran, restaurant owner, and spiritual leader in Los Angeles, Robin’s life took a different path. With her husband, she established the Source Family, a commune with over 140 members. But when Jim changed his name to Father YoHoWha and adopted strange rules for the commune, Robin’s role in the family changed forever.

ABOUT

Everything is Stories

EVERYTHING IS STORIES

An ongoing audio survey of individuals who have experienced transcendence and/or power of the will. No story will be considered too troubled, no atmosphere too strange.

Needed: tales from the underground, the underdog, the outlaw, and the outcast. Genuine characters of all kinds welcome.

Everything is Stories explores unconventional narratives of the past and present to preserve the eccentric, the authentic, and the personal.

Produced by Garrett Crowe, Mike Martinez, and Tyler Wray.
