Hi there! Welcome to JW Forwardcast; the show that helps former Jehovah's Witnesses (and former members of other high control groups) rebuild their lives and move forward!

The host, Covert Fade, interviews a wide range of former JW's who have successfully moved on from the group to find how they managed to rebuild their lives and overcome the negative and limiting belief and habits that their former religion ground into their brains. We discover what works, what doesn't, and discuss how other exJW's might put this advice to use in their own lives.

Good stuff all round!

For those leaving the JW's and struggling to deal with the feelings of isolation, whether they're DF'd, dissasociated or just faded, this podcast can be a great help. Being out with no one to talk to about your experiece can drive you crazy, just listening to Covert and Alice as they talk about how to move on and be positive going forwarded, will no doubt be a great help to many. Keep up the good work. If you ever want me for an interview and to share my story i'd love to get involved. Find me on Twitter @fondofreality.

Really good podcast with tips tricks and hacks for a good life after the cult.

If you are struggling to make life normal after exiting the Jehovah Witnesses, this podcast helps you to see how your personality and thought processes were hijacked and how to make life better without JW rules.

A fantastic concept to help those struggling to cope with leaving the cult of JWS. Looking forward to future help and advice tat l can use, in my wake up journey. And also help my wife who is just starting to open her eyes. Great work Covert.
