This week I am joined again by Jen Kiaba, a second-generation survivor of the Unification Church (the Moonies) and a fellow student on the same psychology of coercive control program I am currently finishing up. We had a great chat this week about cults, the rigors of an academic education and a lot more. Enjoy!

Jamey has a garage gym that has become so much more than that. Deemed "The Church of Jamey", he has started training people and fighters out of it, Peaches being one of those people, and building a really rad community. I can't even begin to say how inspiring it is and I just want to put a light on it and show how Jamey has built this thing and taken his life into his own hands. Let's get to it!!!

Previously on Deadtime Storiez...... Stephanie told us about the Unification Church (aka The Moonies). But what she was saving for this episode was the completely insane sect that branched off from the Moonies: the World Peace and Unification Sanctuary Church - also known as - the Rod of Iron Ministries. And that is because they not only worship God in their church, but also...the AR-15 assault rifle. This church has bullet crowns, gun blessing ceremonies, and openly encourage you to bring your personal AR-15 to service.....I mean, what could be more 'Merican than that? Sarah follows up this cult-filled episode with the leader of the Remnant Fellowship church: Gwen Shamblin Lara. The woman who personifies "the higher the hair, the closer to God", Gwen started her journey as a dietician creating the "Weigh Down Workshop", a faith-based weightloss program (because that won't turn unhealthy fast...) Check out the recently released HBO Documentary "The Way Down: God, Greed, and the Cult of Gwen Shamblin". Both of these cult leaders are quite the personalities, both in what they preach and in their outward appearance. We'll be posting pictures of both on all out social media accounts. *We know that the USA is the "land of the free", and was built on the freedom of religion. BUT, that doesn't mean that all religions are good, or healthy, and some are straight up cults - which is why we talk about them here. We also know that the USA is the land of free speech, so if you have any issues with the topics or opinions raised in this episode please send us an email and we'll be happy to address your concerns*
Cults are closer than you think. They could be serving you sandwiches at a local deli or selling diet books to your mom. This week we talk The Twelve Tribes Community and Gwen Shamblin Lara's Remnant Fellowship. --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/gonnasoundweird/support
I think we can all agree that what we really need in these troubled times are more diploma mills. How else are we gonna get more unlicensed group psychotherapists? THERE IS NO OTHER WAY. The founders of Ganas, which as it happens began as an unaccredited school for group therapy, are entirely with me on this one, and would like to interest you in a completely different, entirely legitimate diploma. But before you accept, two questions: Men, have you ever asked yourself, "Am I denying my sacred manliness by not acting like some horrifying post-pubescent toddler all the fucking time?" Women, have you ever thought, "I sure wish a gross little Boomer twerp from some shithole suburb outside Boston could tell me a lot of dumb fucking garbage about what I'm doing wrong in my relationship!" Boy oh boy, is A. Justin "My real name is Arthur Kasarjian" Sterling the guy you should be burying alive as he kicks his stupid little baby legs in weak protest. Join us, won't you?
World famous mentalist and magician Banachek joins Lola & Meagan to discuss the difference between mentalists, magicians and psychics, how he became involved in a parapsychology research project called Project Alpha, and how you can become emotionally invested in something that you know is an illusion!

Cults are not always sinister. Similarly, cult leaders are not always manipulative sociopaths. Sometimes, all they need is one deluded man. August Engelhardt, born with a silver spoon, was many things, and one of them was delusional, something he shared with other cults and their leaders. You might wonder the peculiarities of Engelhardt's delusion. It is nothing other than the obsessive yet interesting relationship he developed with the fruit with one of the hardest shells. This is a man that decided to give everything up for a life of nudity and a diet consisting of nothing other than coconuts.

Welcome to Book of Lies Podcast. The first part of a much anticipated episode is finally here. This week we go into the upbringing, background and many lies told by the late L. Ron Hubbard. Catch up with your girls, and join us for this episode. visit www.bookofliespodcast.com
There are cults where you skulk around the racist fringes of Southeastern Oklahoma planning terrorist attacks, and cults where the Daughter of God tells you to go out and do crimes so you can all keep staying in luxury hotel suites. Obviously the second kind of cult is way better for everyone, but whatever, we're examining both on today's show! Elohim City's most notable claim to fame is as a stepping stone for Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh, and it's crawling with birds of precisely his feather. Queen Shahima is basically just not into having a day job, and would like to minister to people from really nice hotel suites, and look, all I'm saying is maybe I'd be more open to ministering if I was doing it from the Lieutenant Governor's Suite at the Residence Inn, the really nice one by the highway.
TITLE: Thou Shan't Be Named: “Non-Church Church” SHOWNOTES: Non-Denominational Christianity. Sounds innocent enough, and for many non-denominational churches, it is. But for others, the non-affiliation creates a dangerous pathway to a choose your own adventure “religion.” For Shannon Payton, it was an adventure all right, but not one she necessarily would've chosen…if, of course, given the choice. Shannon has lived more of her life inside the cult than out, but this social media comedian is just starting to scratch the surface of having her voice heard. A voice, of course, that wasn't allowed to be heard for most of her life. And trust us, it's a voice worth hearing. — Follow Shannon: Insta/ TikTok @officialshannypants Listen to our interview on The Daily Zeitgeist Follow us: insta @wasiinacult Email us: Cults@iheartmedia.com Learn more about your ad-choices at https://www.iheartpodcastnetwork.com

Janja Lalich, Ph.D. is an international cult and coercion expert. After hearing her contribution to documentaries and podcasts, I thought her the best first guide into the study of cults. We talked about her bounded choice framework, beautifully laid out in her book Bounded Choice: True Believers and Charismatic Cults. Dr. Lalich is a researcher, author, and educator specializing in cults and extremist groups, with a particular focus on charismatic relationships, political and other social movements, ideology and social control, and issues of gender and sexuality. She has been a consultant to educational, mental health, business, media, and legal professionals, as well as having worked with current members, former members, and families of members of controversial groups. Learn more about her work at http://cultresearch.org/ To purchase Bounded Choice, you can go to Amazon or the University of California Press.

This episode Goddess joins me in a heartfelt discussion of our shared experience of leaving the cult in which we were raised, deconditioning ourselves, and finding our way to our true selves. Goddess (they/them/theirs) is the Proud MoMo of Sun Seed Community; a platform for the practice of collective healing. Creating Goddess' tools of liberation took a whole community of support and they hope their village's stories can resonate with others. They graduated from the Healing Arts Institute of Massage in October of 2018 and continue to explore therapeutic and spiritual practices. You can usually find them in the "pagan" section of the bookstore, sitting in the back of a concert, caressing crystals at your local metaphysical shop, or binge-watching old sci-fi movies while cooking. This episode we discuss:
What was supposed to be a brief trip in another country, quickly turned into something straight out of a horror movie. Otto Warmbier was only 22-years-old when things took a dark turn in an unimaginable way. Join us as we discuss parts of his beautiful life, leading up to how it was tragically cut short. This episode also includes a really creepy listener story. P.S. Happy New Year from Crime, Cults, & Coffee! --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/crime-cults-and-coffee/support

I HIGHLY recommend you check out this podcast from one of my nearest and dearest Ashley & her co-host Cam. If you love Cults...this is literally your new favorite podcast. TSFU the Podcast is a true crime comedy podcast about cults, murder and other generally horrific stuff. TSFU hosts Ashley and Cam tell enthralling stories, using comedy and thorough research to explore what inspires people to do the awful things they do. Nature? Nurture? Society? Let's investigate from our couches together... while we play murder bingo! TSFU Ep. 71- The Family.mp3This week the gals talk about notoriously brutal Australian cult, The Family. Jeepers Creepers!Ash dives into the life of Anne Hamilton-Byrne, and how she eventually became the leader of a yoga/LSD/baby-napping/Children of the Corn cult. Born Evelyn Edwards, Anne grew up poor and spent time in orphanages in rich neighborhoods as a child. Seeing how the upperclass lived, she always knew that she wanted a piece of the pie. When Evelyn's first husband died, she reinvented herself as a glamorous yoga teacher and medium named Anne Hamilton. Preaching a mishmash of Christianity, Eastern mysticism and apocalyptic prophecy, she convinced hundreds that she was Jesus, using large quantities of LSD on her members and herself. One day she had a vision that the world was going to end in some horrific way and that she needed to start a master race of children who would be left to re-educate what's left of the world. So she basically began stealing babies and made them all look alike, with the same clothes, haircuts and bleached blonde hair. Likely going for a Von Trapp family vibe, she gave them more of a Children of the Corn look. And things only get more insane and tragic from there.... it's not just yoga you guys!!Play the new and improved version of "Cult Bingo" with us for a chance to win a FREE month of Patreon!

We've only come to this conclusion 70 to 90 times on the show, but did you know that a lot of cults are basically just outlets for white Boomer men to plaster over their obvious insecurities? You did, huh? Yeah. Well, you're already here, so why not learn about two more of them? Today's white guys are Gabriel of Urantia, who has a “University” in “Arizona,” which may not even be a real state, and John “Tubby” Miller, who I guess decided he actually wanted other people to call him that. “The University of Ascension Science & the Physics of Rebellion” squares off this week against, I swear to god, “The Gentle Wind.”Huhuh. Huhuh. Huhuhuhuhuhuhuhuhuhuhuh. Huhuhuh. Huhuh. Huh.

In 1991, 9 year old Nancy Shoemaker went missing after going to the store to pick up a bottle of 7up for her sick younger brother. The community came out in droves to search for the missing girl. Her skeletal remains were found 30 miles away. Tables are turned when the confessed killer was also linked to another murder hundreds of miles away in San Marcos, Texas.

Reuben Langdon has an unquenchable thirst for answers to life's mysteries, and he's happy to take everyone along on his search! In addition to being an actor and film maker - appearing in such blockbusters as Charlie's Angels, Spiderman 2, and Pirates of the Caribbean as well as video games such as Resident Evil and Devil May Cry - he is the creator of the series Interview with ED (extra dimensionals). Reuben shares about his own experience with ETs and UFOs and offers many nuggets of Truth which have presented in his research and experience. In particular, we get into: - Self-empowerment versus fear-based messaging from alien contact. - Reuben shares his experience with a UFO sighting. - The importance of choice and allowing everyone to be sovereign beings, to discover within themselves the ultimate Truth. - Empowerment in terms of decentralization and not following the masses. - The slippery slope of spiritual teachings become cultish, and how something which could be so empowering can stealthily become a prison. - How is the Universe presenting opportunities to refine ourselves? https://reubenlangdon.com/ https://interviewwithed.org/
A Little Bit Culty – If you think you're too smart to fall for a cult, this episode is your wake-up call. Undue influence can poison what starts out as a ‘good thing' and turn it into a culty shitshow. Just ask today's guest: Gerette Buglion. She was a member of an under-the-radar cult for over 18 years. In this organization, there was no tithing, no rules about where you should live, what brand of deodorant you must use, or what clothes to wear. Instead, far more subtle techniques were used...but they were powerful, and destructive all the same. When Gerette finally emerged from the cult at age 52, she asked herself, “How did I, an educated, caring mother, wife, and business owner become that lost and for that long?” She joins us to discuss her page-turning memoir, and her journey from hopeful therapy client to enthusiastic cult member to an anti-cult crusader. Spoiler alert: You're not too smart to fall for culty shit. More about today's guest: Gerette Buglion, B.A. Elementary Education and Special Education, earned her ‘Master's Degree' in cult awareness education from the school of life. This training occurred during her eighteen-year odyssey with Doug (Fictitious name. Real person) who was the leader of the ‘Center for Transformational Learning' (fictitious name for a real group, also simply CTL). Her memoir of her experience, An Everyday Cult, lifts the nuanced veil of controlling groups through its subtle weaving of personal experience with insight from recognized cultic phenomena. In addition to hosting retreats and her Writing to Reckon workshops, Gerette is a co-founding collaborator of the #igotout movement and igotout.org and co-host of the Everyday Cults, Everyday People podcast.

Of course, it's enticing to be someone who's in the know. It's seductive to think that you might know a truth or truths that the majority do not. Those in the minority group that share those truths have a tight bond as they work together to turn those beliefs into action, often under a strong leader. Join us as we discuss cults.

Cults! Cargo! Colonialism! John Frum is a mythical and beloved figure to many native people of the island of Tanna in Vanuatu, and could, maybe, MAYBE, be part of a vanishingly rare time when the arrival of white people from the United States was an improvement on the squatting of white people from Europe. MAYBE. Our alternative to John Frum is Love Has Won, a cult whose name makes sense if you replace "Love" with "Our Super Drunk Colloidal-Silver Fiend Karen of a Cult Leader" and "Won" with "Been Dead in the Other Room for Several Months and We Put Christmas Lights on Her to Cheer Things Up a Bit PLEASE DON'T CALL THE COPS."

Do you know anything about this group? Specifically, anything that might be helpful in a conversation with them, especially where their theology might differ from the Truth?" Pastor Mike Winger joins the show to help respond to this and other questions. What should we think about the long ending of Mark? We'll talk about that too!

When Mike Flynn posted a video on July 4, 2020 in which his family recited QAnon slogans, it cemented the disgraced former National Security Advisor and U.S. Army lieutenant general as a MAGA patriot super-hero. On September 17, just 14 short months later, Flynn took the stage, bathed in light at the Lord of Hosts Church in Omaha, Nebraska to lead a political prayer that was a fiery angelic call-to-arms. But, oops! It turns out that this prayer traces back to New Age doomsday cult leader, Elizabeth Clare Prophet. Now the Q-faithful have turned on their hero, accusing him of being in league with the Satanic cabal. We'll ask today's guest host, Sean Prophet—who happens to be the eldest son of that cult leader—how he got out, and how we got here.Show NotesThe Radical Secular podcast with Sean ProphetRelevant episodes:9: QAnon and Conspirituality: with Matthew Remski - 08.24.2016: Before Q, There Was CUT: with Joe Szimhart - 10.19.2022: Getting out of Cults and Harmful Religions - Bonus Episode54: Blavatsky, the I Am, and The Summit Lighthouse - 07.19.21Black Sun Journal » Happy Birthday, Mom!: 2006 Article by Sean Prophet on final interaction with Elizabeth Clare ProphetChurch Universal and Triumphant - Nightline - May 17th 1990 CUT/Summit Lighthouse on Oprah 5 with Streiker and Hassan QAnon Fall Out from Mike Flynn using I Am Prayer
