Friends in Juggalo Places

Hosted by  • 

If you’ve heard anything about juggalos, you may have heard that they paint their faces like clowns – or maybe, that they don’t get how magnets work. From the outside, the rabid fans of Insane Clown Posse seem incomprehensible. But once you get to know them, the logic of juggalo culture starts to reveal itself. Producer Carla Green took a bus trip across the country with a juggalo – and learned some things about the people who sometimes call themselves the most hated family in the world.
