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


Emotional Vampires - Narcissists and Cult Leaders in Relationships w/ Dan Shaw, ex-Siddha - S3E7pt1

Part 1 of a 2 Part interview, Rachel speaks with her colleague: New York based author, social worker, psychoanalyst and cult survivor Dan Shaw. After leaving the Siddha Yoga cult in the 90s, Dan received his Masters and rededicated his life to helping those who had been traumatized and subjugated by narcissist partners, cult leaders included.

He tours, lectures, and speaks at conferences around the world and you can check out his website at

Stay tuned, Before You Go: Rachel talks about why narcissists have to use subjugating techniques to maintain their control-- being treated like a pet, rather than a partner.
