    Dr. Geraldine Downey, professor at Columbia University, enlightens us about all things cultish. Then we meet a defector from the Red Bull cult. Sacred cow? Anyone? Cough. In the next installment of our serial saga we ask some more questions about Rick Dupuy. We talk to Sam Ajamian, a former member of the Children of God, and a friend of Rick's if he is, in fact, a conman.   Hosted by Tina Dupuy

    Nate Phelps is the son of late pastor Fred Phelps of the Westboro Baptist Church (also known as the "God Hates Fags" protesters...and also known as The Most Hated Family in America). What's it like to grow up in the Westboro Baptist Church? And more importantly, what's it like to leave? The story we're taking an entire season to tell is about Rick Dupuy, one of the top leaders of the group the Children of God. Hosted by Tina Dupuy Note: If you're seeing this as a new episode, it's not. We were made aware of some audio issues so we tried to fix them. Same episode though. Sorry for the tease, devotees!
