Hi Weirdos! Welcome to the second installment of our CULTS series! (Check out Episode 17 if you want to hear us discuss what makes up a cult: the leaders, the followers, and what makes a cult different from a religion) Tyler Schuelke, our resident Cult Enthusiast is back with us and this time we're talking about BRAINWASHING.
We discuss the different techniques used to gain a following in a cult and even how those techniques are used in OTHER parts of life; be it relationships, advertising, and even politics.
This episode is actually part one of two, and we are using examples from the brand-spankin' new cult NXIVM (led by Keith Reniere and his protégé Allison Mack)
