Charles Manson died Sunday at the age of 83, 48 years after he masterminded a string of murders that horrified the nation. But at 14, Dianne Lake had a very different take on Manson -- she was in love with him and was the youngest member of the Manson family, as his followers were known. Lake joins us to discuss her relationship with Manson, what life was like inside the cult and her new memoir, "Member of the Family."

Guests:
Dianne Lake,
co-author with Deborah Herman of "Member of the Family: My Story of Charles Manson, Life Inside His Cult, and the Darkness that Ended the Sixties"
