NXIVM (pronounced "Nexium") calls itself a humanitarian community. Experts call it a cult. Uncover: Escaping NXIVM is an investigative podcast series about the group, its leader Keith Raniere and one woman's journey to get out. From CBC Podcasts and CBC News.
Introducing: Evil by Design
More than 80 women from around the world have accused the fast-fashion mogul Peter Nygard of rape, sexual assault, and human trafficking in incidents across four decades and at least four countries. He denies it all, and claims his accusers are lying as part of a vast conspiracy. Nygard had built a sprawling international retail empire over the past 50 years — but now, his professional achievements are being overshadowed by a sinister personal life, earning him the moniker, ‘Canada’s Jeffrey Epstein’. Evil by Design is a new podcast that asks the key questions: Who are the women and men who have stepped forward? Which systems failed them? And how did Nygard get away with it for so long?

The rise and fall of NXIVM's Keith Raniere
In a U.S. federal courtroom Tuesday, Keith Raniere was sentenced to 120 years—having been convicted of a slew of crimes related to his alleged sex cult NXIVM. During the trial and sentencing, victims told of how the self-professed empowerment "vanguard" had turned some of his followers into sex slaves and branded them with his initials. Front Burner's Jayme Poisson discusses with Uncover: NXIVM host Josh Bloch.

Most coherent, best researched and narrated podcast on NXIVM. Thanks!!
Binged in three days. Excellent research and interviews! I recommend this to true crime lovers!
Good but no hard hitting
I loved this but I think the journalist went way to easy on his friend, Sarah. There are so many questions that were left unanswered, especially after the interview with the defense attorney. I do not think Sarah was in a cult and I do not think she has any legal standing. She bought into some crap and is embarrassed. She tried to take the clients with her when she left. Then she played victim.
