    Escaping NXIVM Introduces: Hollywood Exiles

    Escaping NXIVM Introduces: Hollywood Exiles

    From the BBC World Service and CBC Podcasts comes Hollywood Exiles. Host Oona Chaplin tells the story of the decades-long campaign to root out communism in Hollywood. It’s a campaign that eventually drove her grandfather, Charlie Chaplin, and many others out of tinseltown. Hollywood Exiles is a tale of glamour, duplicity and political intrigue that reverberates to this day. It’s the story of how Tinseltown became an ideological battleground. The toll of the fight was enormous – reputations, careers and families were torn apart by the campaign to drive communists from the movie business.

Fascinating!

A great binge listen!!

Episodes not chronological

The content is great, thank you. A development point, however, is that the episodes are not playing in order. I listen to a lot of podcasts, have the same settings in all of them (starting with the oldest etc) but this podcast appears to be all over the place. Only on this, not in any others I am listening to

Binge worthy but victim blaming

The host sharing all the criticisms of the whistle blower, as well as the interrogation of them in Episode 7 was very hard to listen to.
