Understanding Trump Phenomena

Fabulous podcast esp Episode The Talk. Understanding how a cult manipulates information to gain control of its members and then the discussion explaining effective strategies to help people leave the cult/deprogramming is very interesting in light of our political climate. Gives a whole new understanding on ways to help people who, even when faced with the truth - continue to believe the “con man”. Very very thought provoking .

What our world needs!

I love this. Have you ever learned something and thought how did I not know this sooner? Why doesn’t everyone know this or have this help? This podcast is like people sharing those kinds of stories and it’s stuff that can help me have a better life and be a better member of our world.
