    This podcast is not our norm, but if you’d like to hear how Becky’s latest series about a religious cult came about, take a listen. We talk about controlling groups around the world. Neither of us is an expert on the topic, yet we’ve learned from our research and hope to help listeners avoid high-demand groups. At the end, Becky reads from the first book in the series, "Shattered Dream."
