My name is Riley and I'm a former Jehovah's Witness.

In 2020, I woke up to the fact that the Jehovah's Witnesses are not "the one true religion" as I was raised to believe. In fact, the religion is a high-control group, which causes a lot of harm to current and former members.

In this podcast, I share my experiences being raised as a Jehovah's Witness, discuss JW doctrine, and interview former members.

    ExJW Interview: "Jane Dogwood"

    In this episode, my anonymous guest, "Jane Dogwood", is a former Jehovah's Witness who disassociated from the organisation in the early 90s.

    Jane's waking up happened gradually over a period of years but she had an epiphany after visiting the London Bethel and realising that the religion was really just a publishing company.

    This is her story.

    In this episode, my anonymous guest, "John Birch", is a former Jehovah's Witness who started waking up from his indoctrination on the day of his baptism!
