139: Sarah Edmondson - What do you learn from whistleblowing a sex cult?

Sarah Edmondson is an actress who appeared on the popular CBC teen soap series, "Edgemont," SyFy’s "Andromeda," "Continuum," and "Stargate SG-1", USA Network’s "Dead Zone" and Lifetime Television’s "Killer Hair" and "Hostile Makeover." As a voice-over artist, Sarah has created original voices for Cartoon Network’s "Max Steel," and "Transformers Cybertron," Discovery Kids "Class of the Titans," Hasbro’s "My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic," and Netflix’s "Dinotrux." Sarah has also voiced characters for popular international children’s series, including The Rose in France Télévisions "Le Petit Prince" and Thea Stilton for Italy’s Rai 2’s "Geronimo Stilton." 

Sarah was seen in various Hallmark movies, including AT HOME IN MITFORD, alongside award-winning actress Andie MacDowell. She played supporting roles in Hallmark’s WEDDING OF DREAMS, starring Debbie Gibson, and Season Two of CBS's "Salvation." Just before the birth of her second child, she appeared in Hallmark’s WELCOME TO CHRISTMAS.

In 2005, Sarah joined NXIVM, a personal and professional development company. Over her 12-year tenure, she went from student to coach and eventually operated her own NXIVM center in Vancouver. In 2019, Sarah published Scarred: The True Story of How I Escaped NXIVM, the Cult that Bound My Life, with Kristine Gasbarre. In this tell-all memoir, she shares her story from the moment she takes her first seminar to her harrowing fight to get out of NXIVM, collaborate with the FBI, help others, and heal.

Sarah’s full story is featured in“The Vow,” the critically acclaimed HBO documentary series on NXIVM. Now with the launch of her own podcast, “A Little Bit Culty,” co-hosted by her husband and fellow NXIVM whistleblower Anthony “Nippy” Ames, she aims to help people understand, heal from, and avoid abusive situations, one little red flag at a time.
