Welcome to IndoctriNation: A weekly podcast covering cults, manipulators, and protecting yourself from systems of control.
I wanted to start a show that gives survivors a chance to tell their stories and for experts to teach us what they know. My goal for IndoctriNation is to empower our listeners to protect themselves and those they love from predators, toxic personalities, and destructive organizations.
I'm Rachel Bernstein, LMFT. I've been working with victims of cults and emotional abusers for 27 years. Given the right set of circumstances, it's all too easy for anyone to fall prey to sociopaths and manipulators.
