Welcome to IndoctriNation: A weekly podcast covering cults, manipulators, and protecting yourself from systems of control.


Mind Control, Hypnosis, & Undue Influence w/ Professor Alan Scheflin, hypnosis expert - S2E8

Recorded at the International Cultic Studies Association conference in Philadelphia: Rachel talks with respected Professor Emeritus Alan Scheflin, a law and philosophy professor and an expert on hypnosis. As an advocate for victims of government repression, Alan took on the world of cults when he saw the parallels with the ways power is abused; from the use of negative reinforcement, to psychedelic drugs. Join us for a discussion on mind control, repression, and how we can take an "activist's joy" from helping those in need.

Stay tuned, Before You Go: Rachel speaks about the limits of the law, and how cults and manipulators use loopholes to get away with abuse- through a harrowing tale of police indifference.
