    Gatekeeping and Imposter Syndrome

    Gatekeeping and Imposter Syndrome

    Welcome to the un-cult-ured podcast!Have you ever felt like your blossoming interest in a new fandom has been burnt to a crisp by the veterans of that community? An unfortunate thing that occurs among veteran fans of a piece of art is a tendency to “gatekeep” newer members, almost as a means of hazing to ensure that only “true fans” of the series survive. This can give rise to “nerd imposter syndrome” where you feel unworthy to become a fan of a new piece of culture. This can be especially true for former members of cults and high control groups, where you were severely restricted in the kinds of entertainment you could watch.Join Germ, Patricia, Covert Fade, and Jordan for this episode where we do a deep dive into the culture of gatekeeping and how to combat nerd imposter syndrome.Check out our discord!

Former JW in the house

Great job y’all. I’m a former JW having toiled away in the ORG from 1976 to 2008. My youth was spent being a JW in the 80s when the ORG hated on Smurfs and video games, tentatively lauded and then scolded Michael Jackson for making Thriller, not being able to tell anyone about the movies we watched like Ghostbusters, Indiana Jones and The Adventure Du Jour so it’s interesting and cathartic hearing your anecdotes from the same time period. I’m interested in hearing more about your personal experiences growing up as a JW and taking apart their various bizarre beliefs and world views. Hearing the experiences of the group have been cathartic and entertaining. Thank you for your work. - Lawrence Hollie formerly of the Waltham/Watertown MA congregation of Jehocah’s Witnesses (I also attended the Cambridge, Milford, Maynard and Lexington congregations at one time or another. It depended on who I was dating or was trying to date)

Finally a family ❤️

I’m so grateful this podcast was created. Being born and raised a fourth generation Witness and leaving the cult 2 years ago it’s amazing to hear people that finally understand me. I only know two other exWitnesses in my area and just listening to this podcast just opens up a whole new world. I can’t say how many times I laughed at how similar everyone’s experience is to mine. It’s great to know that there are exJws out there. Thank you so much!
