Ep. 36 Tabby Chapman on NXIVM

Listen now on Spotify

In Ep. 36, For 1st Tuesday it's #BackToSchool. Cult awareness is a spotlight during October of Season One. My guests & I will spell out the recruitment dangers for teens, college adolescents, and people in a life transition. In this interview I speak with Tabitha Chapman, one of the victims of Allison Mack (Smallville) in the self-improvement cult NXIVM. She is also in the related documentary Seduced and was involved in Mack's trial. 

In addition Chapman formed in 2022, International Cult Awareness Month, which is now every August. She educates us on that, then tours us through the bold entrapment recruiting she went through directly by Allison Mack in NXIVM & why she went into clinical counseling to help victims of coercion.

For 2nd Tuesday I usually focus on the topic of sexuality in society. I'm going to take a bit more of a generalized approach on the topic of survivors today. How do we head from victim to survivor in recovering from what happened? 

One specialist on this topic is a thinker in his 90's who's had a lot to say as a psychatrist in this area of societal issues: Robert Jay Lifton. I learned of Lifton from a podcast episode of Influence Continuum by Steve Hassan.

The episode is called "Dr. Robert Jay Lifton on current events and the importance of survivors telling their stories".
