Good story, great storyteller

What makes this story so riveting is Glynn Washington’s expressive telling of it. His pacing is terrific, and he has so much empathy for everyone involved in these very real events. Highly recommended.

Great storytelling (without fiction to guide it)

Interesting story about the events that happened. I ended up looking deeper into this cult after the pod was over. It gave me a really good look into the people effected and how they were encapsulated by promises.

Great deep dive

... into the world of cults. I learned new details about this case I hadn’t heard before. Very engaging and I love the narrator.
