    #135 The Conspiracy Vault - The Death of Kurt Cobain

    #135 The Conspiracy Vault - The Death of Kurt Cobain

    In this conspiracy episode I take a brief look at the early life and career of Kurt Cobain - frontman of the history making grunge rock band Nirvana. Many conspiracies surround the death of Cobain with a large number of people remaining in the mindset that Cobain did not complete suicide and that Courtney Love was responsible for arranging his murder and making it look like a suicide.

    #132 BONUS EPISODE - Troubled Teen Industry - Stone Mountain & Three Springs

    In this episode I speak with Andrew who talks us through his experiences being pulled through the Troubled Teen Industry from the young age of 11 onwards. Not only was Andrew subjected to "scared straight" programmes and tactics, he was sent through 2 wilderness programmes that respectively had abuse and manipulation running through both.

    #130 Troubled Teen Industry - The Élan School

    Rachel sits down with me to talk me through her experiences in The Élan School. A difficult story with an inspiring conclusion. But another heartbreaking account of the institutionalised abuse experienced by so many young adults and children who are subjected to these programmes.

Fantastic Interviews

Learned about Cult Vault because Kacey made a post on our subreddit (exiglesianicristo) looking to interview users their experience in said cult.

Few weeks later, the Iglesias Ni Cristo episodes comes out and I absolutely enjoyed listening to each episode! Kacey is such a professional host! Looking forward to future episodes!

VictoriaPandora ,

Very informative also fun!

2020 played out a lot like that series ‘The Leftovers’, and that’s when I started looking for active cults. Since we were locked down I knew all the action was probably online. I was not disappointed.
I’m trying to figure out of just WHICH of those ‘leftover’ cult leader archetypes OWEN BENJAMIN is.
That’s how I found this most EXCELLENT podcast!! Great work!

In-depth gossip in lieu of research

Disappointing lack of curiosity and fundamental interest in research.
