Are you in a political cult? (This is how you know for sure.)

Oh boy, oh boy, ohhhh boy... Today I spoke with Radhia Gleis, author of "The Followers: “Holy Hell” and the Disciples of Narcissistic Leaders" and wow, our time together flew by. We began talking about her experience inside of a cult, the psychology of becoming a cult follower and how sex and religion are typically integrated. From there, we delved into the hyper-polarized world of politics today where she makes some interesting comparisons. While I think we were on opposite sides of the political spectrum, I found her quite fascinating and I think you will too. Tune in now for a very riveting account of a fascinating life.
