Good story but ruined by poor volume control

Worth listing to, however the surges in volume from quiet to loud is very distracting, especially when trying to relax then getting blasted with an unexpected volume surge. It's even worse again when the promotional segments play.
Then at times too quiet.

People making podcasts need to learn to get the audio levels right and consistent. Or hire a professional

That said, it was a very interesting story

Enjoyable somewhat personal account of a cult and its leader

Halfway through. Good listen.

A bad mix of misrepresentated stories - not worth the time

The truth and facts are far more interesting to read! Waste of time.
