Description

Hosted by Tyler Measom and Liz Iacuzzi, Was I In A Cult? is a documentary-style podcast showcasing individuals who have been in, and most importantly, successfully left a cult. Told first-hand by the experiencer themself, these are raw, riveting and inspirational tales of what it means to be a survivor. Using levity and info-tainment, the show humanizes the cultic experience and may leave some of our listeners asking themselves…“Wait…Was I In A Cult?” If you or someone you know has been in a cult and want to share your story, contact us at CULTS@iHeartMedia.com. We'd love to hear from you.

With rockstar aspirations, Daniel O’Brien wasn’t looking for anything but a good time. But when heartbreak rocked his world, he tripped into something that lifted his spirits and rallied his hopes - the Jehovah’s Witnesses.  Before he knew it, Daniel had traded his guitar for a green Bible and found himself rapidly rising through the ranks of the religion. A wife, and two kids later, he was a fully indoctrinated, high ranking Elder in the church. But when Daniel realizes that he’s part of a life much different than the one he originally signed up for, he knows that he must leave.  The only problem is… he can’t. ___ If you, or anyone you know has ever been in a cult, please email us at CULTS@iheartmedia.com, we’d love to hear from you.

WOMEN ONLY SECRET SOCIETY (NXIVM) PT 1: "The Magic Sauce"
3413
When the LA party scene didn’t fit Jessica’s lifestyle anymore, she replaced martinis and after-hour clubs with green juices and tonic bars. But the reemergence of a childhood trauma forced her to examine her inner self.  One day, a friend told her about a class that could improve her life even more. That class turned out to be part of a larger entity. A self-empowerment company that purported to help you become the master of your own life.  A little group called… NXIVM.
