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


The 'Gateway Group' w/ Lucas Catton ex-Narconon President - S5E11pt1

Lucas Catton is a former Scientologist who got recruited through their Narconon Rehabilitation Program at a place formerly known as Chilocco in Oklahoma.

Lucas was appointed President of that Narconon program, through which he met some of Scientology's heavy hitters including the leader David Miscavige. He had no connections to Scientology before he was sent to their facility which incorporated Scientology philosophy as the basis of their drug treatment techniques.

Check out his book, Reconnection, about rebuilding his life after disconnecting Scientology:

Stay tuned, Before You Go: The story of a girl who was mistakenly treated for learning disabilities and a lesson in diagnosing an issue before fully understanding the symptoms.
Rachel also addresses some of the feedback she received from last week's episode on conspiracy theories.
