Office Cults - the Story of Keith Raniere and NXIVM
Show Notes

Have you ever been a part of an organization that seemed more like a cult than a regular workplace?

In this episode, I discuss the famed sex cult NXIVM and its leader, Keith Raniere. I also look into one of his followers, Sarah Edmondston. Bringing it to an everyday situation, when an organization turns into a cult, it begins to be more about serving the leader, than serving the purpose for which it was started.
