Ep. 309 The Covenant, the Sword and the Arm of the Lord Part 2 - Episode 107 Remastered

In this remastered conversation, I speak with former co-leader of the Covenant, the Sword and the Arm of the Lord (CSA). Unfortunately, I found out recently that Kerry passed away last year. It was a very quiet event, with no mention of it in the anti-cult community. This deeply saddened me as Kerry spent so much of his life attempting to reconcile for his earlier years, take accountability for his actions and teach the world how hate can manifest and become deadly, just like it does in today's far-right and extremist hate groups. Kerry was unabashedly honest about his crimes, his moral injuries and his attempts to teach love instead of hate. His book series "Tabernacle of Hate" will be a legacy of Kerry's later years as a writer and motivational speaker against hate. Thank you Kerry for your time, your wisdom, your honesty and your years spent teaching us. COLD TAPES - https://coldtapes.com/?utm_source=Cult%20Vault&utm_medium=Podcast&utm_campaign=Editorial Get in Touch or Support:Patreon - patreon.com/thecultvaultCrimecon UK 2024 - https://www.crimecon.co.uk - use code CULT for 10% off tickets!Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/cultvaultpod/Twitter: https://twitter.com/CultVaultPodReddit: https://www.reddit.com/user/Cult-VaultGmail: [email protected]

Ep. 280 When Therapy Becomes Abusive Miniseries Part 3

For this instalment, I sat down to talk with Linda Pevac/Emma Stevens about her experiences being indoctrinated by her own next-door-neighbour and therapist. When Emma was at her lowest, and seeking therapy recommendations from her neighbourly psychologist, she had no idea what would happen next. A slow and methodical abuse of power led to Emma's imprisonment physically, psychologically and financially at the hands of a person who had been trained to do good, but used her knowledge of the mind to do the complete opposite. Emma' memoir "A Fire is Coming" is a timely, heartbreaking expose on the darkest sides of therapy.

Ep. 249 Apawcalypse Now - Freedom Fire Ministries & Eva's Eden Miniseries Part 3

In this episode I chat with Desi about their experiences growing up in Freedom Fire Ministries. Desi describes life inside the high-control group with a matriarchal, authoritarian leader. Though leaving would mean strained contact with parents, and family members relocating to other parts of the country, Desi has managed to carve out an independent life and speak eloquently and introspectively about their time within Freedom Fire Ministries. Oh! and there is also a segment about the notorious "Cat Cult" Eva's Eden - a nonprofit cat rescue organisation fronted by the same leader!

Ep. 245 Saving My Child From Liana Shanti Part 3

In this heartfelt episode I sit down to chat with Nirvana. Nirvana was on call with me from the garden area of a psychiatric hospital that her child has been admitted to, following the fallout of their involvement with online guru and alleged cult leader Liana Shanti. During our conversation, Nirvana offers some insight into making impossible decisions in impossible situations and how she navigated a situation that was meticulously designed to isolate her child from her family, widen the divide between loved ones and strengthen allegiances to the leader all at the same time. I hope any loved ones with people inside destructive and toxic groups can take strength from Nirvana's story and know that you are not alone.Thank you Nirvana.

Ep. 241 Mentally Diseased Miniseries Part 3 - Interview with Author Micah Losh

In this miniseries I talk with Micah Losh, author of the recently published memoir Mentally Diseased. During Micah's childhood in the Jehovah's Witnesses, he lost his father. This eternal spiritual relationship was then held hostage, with Micah being told that the only way to be reunited is to fully submit to the teachings of the Watchtower Organisation. Slipping into a deep depression, Micah received little to no support, and was actually blamed instead for his suffering, told it was his reluctance to conform to the JW's fully that caused this ill-mental health. This is Micah's troubling journey through a toxic religious group that almost claimed Micah's life. TW - talk of suicide.

As former members of the cult, our guests share their harrowing experiences, detailing the physical, emotional and sexual abuse, as well as the indoctrination tactics used by the group's leaders. But the voices of these 2 survivors are not just victims - they have become advocates for cult education and awareness. Jemima and Whisper are now the hosts of their own podcast, where they provide a platform for other survivors to share their stories and discuss the continuing relevance of cults in society today.Throughout this engaging and thought-provoking conversation, we explore the challenges of leaving a cult, the importance of support and community in recovery, and the power of speaking out against abuse and manipulation.Join us for this powerful conversation with two inspiring women who are working to create a safer, more informed world - TW, sensitive content ahead.Butterflies and Bravery - https://www.butterfliesandbravery.comPodcast Promotion - The Truth that Heals on Apple PodcastsCrimecon tickets available here - www.crimecon.co.ukGet in Touch or Support:Patreon - patreon.com/thecultvaultCult Vault Shop - cultvaultpodcast.com/shopCrimecon UK 2022 - https://www.crimecon.co.uk/Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/cultvaultpod/Twitter: https://twitter.com/CultVaultPodReddit: https://www.reddit.com/user/Cult-VaultGmail: [email protected]
