    THE OPPORTUNIST IS AVAILABLE NOW

    THE OPPORTUNIST IS AVAILABLE NOW

    The Opportunist tells true stories of regular people who turn sinister simply by being opportunistic. How does an everyday person turn into a thief, a cult leader, or a scammer? Instead of portraying criminals as distinctly “other,” we explore our similarities and reveal the dark potential lurking inside of all of us. The Opportunist will launch with an episodic series on Sherry Shriner, a midwest mom and life-long church goer turned internet cult leader. The series follows Sherry as she gains thousands of followers online by promoting her own religion (a blend of biblical doomsday predictions and popular alien/reptilian conspiracy theories) and profits on selling spiritual weapons that defeat aliens and demons. As she rises to the status of infallible goddess, she leaves a trail of death and destruction in her wake. We speak with family & friends of deceased cult members, prosecutors, police officers, a high profile cult expert and more. Through thought-provoking interviews and investigative reporting, The Opportunist invites the listener along with us on a thrilling journey of discovery.

Good stuff!

Great music in the background. Stories are intriguing and makes for compelling listening.

A better Lore

New to this podcast. I appreciate its professional production qualities, and the choice of stories delivered so eloquently by the (British) host. Similarities will be compared to the Lore podcast, but I'd say Unexplained is more straightforward and easy to understand.

One of the best true storytelling I’ve heard

This podcast makes me want to go back to school to study Library Science or History. Thank you. You make wonderful research. Music is great too.
