love it

Gripping and superbly researched cautionary tales

The three podcasts on Kenja and Koresheanity and 'The family' are three of best I have heard on any subject. This podcast is not just a thorough repackaging of existing sources on the subject (although it is that) it is also a part of the process of recording and creating the history of an incredibly important topic - from which we can learn a lot about how and why exploited individuals and extreme organisations follow the paths they do.

Looking forward to future episodes!
