In 1997 the largest mass suicide on US soil happened as the Hale-Bopp Comet passed over earth. The tragedy was a result of the belief that evil space aliens were holding humans back from reaching their true potential, deeply held by the religious organization Heaven's Gate, founded in 1974 by leaders Ti and Do. One of the earliest members, Sharon Welsh just happened to be the aunt of my friend and fellow podcaster, Leslie Fear. So I asked Leslie if she would come help me tell the story of Heaven's Gate, using her never been told insider perspective.

Spencer Schneider spent 23 years of his life in an elite Manhattan secret society, hidden in plain sight, and operating under everyone's noses called "School". The founder, an eccentric washed up actress named Sharon Gans was obsessed with the private lives of her followers, abusing them for her own sick satisfaction.

It's been mentioned in many Amway episodes, but it's entire weight was largely unknown. So when fan of the show, and American Historian Sean Munger reached out with an episode idea, I was game. And after Paul talked so much about the tools in Britt World Wide, this episode seemed the perfect follow up! If you were ever curious about the cult of the motivational tapes, and the showdown with Amway that ensued, you gotta listen to this episode.

I had no idea how bad Rank Makers was until I spoke to Julie Anderson. That chat lead me down a path uncovering shocking behavior and even scarier experiences from even more people, including Jennifer Rajala. It wasn't until I put out a call to action asking for testimonials that Ray's victims poured forth. I had so many submissions, I decided to organize them by the BITE Model, juxtaposing them with Ray's own thoughts and opinions.

It was just a quick google to fact check something during a chat, but the rabbit hole it led me down made my head spin. I thought I was investigating the origin story of a course scam and I somehow STILL ended up in pyramid schemes, murder plots, Ponzi schemes and surprisingly, a first - CIA espionage. This is the first half of two unlikely stories with a common thread. Stay tuned for next Wednesday for the second half!

Episode 129 : Andrea

2022-10-2301:15:08

This episode is sponsored by Nobody Should Believe Me, a groundbreaking new podcast by Andrea Dunlop about Munchausen by Proxy told from the perspective of those whose lives were turned upside down by it. Listen wherever you listen to podcasts! Happy October! All month long we will be sharing MLM Horror stories, from creepy cults to literal murder. Join us every Sunday with bonus episodes on Wednesday! ๏ปฟHave an MLM CULT STORY to share? Email me! | Send a voice message! | These stories will be used in anthology episodes in November for Commercial Cult Awareness Month with IGotOut.org! We've all heard a story about an MLM funneling someone into a course scam, but what happens when the course scam funnels you into an MLM? For Andrea, all she wanted to do was help people, so why not supplement her college degree with some self guided, self-help courses and become a certified life coach? But from day one, everything seemed strange, and instead of trusting her gut, she trusted handsome young men in fancy suits. It wasn't until she ended up in the ER that she "woke up" and saw the scam for what it really was. *Next Wednesday's episode starts a strange 2-part Rabbit Hole into Thomas Willhite.

After interviewing and chatting with several people who slid down that pipeline, I knew we had to dedicate an episode to the terrifying cult movement creeping out of the darkest corners of the web and into your social feeds with little difficulty.

Happy October! All month long we will be sharing MLM Horror stories, from creepy cults to literal murder. Join us every Sunday with bonus episodes on Wednesday! *CW - This episode features discussions about mental illness and toxic diet culture. We talk about mental health, disordered eating, binge eating disorder, and fatphobia. Please use discretion when listening.* Ella Kruczynska just wanted to document her health and weight loss journey on Instagram and maybe help a few people along the way. At first she was happy to find a community where she felt valued and welcomed, but when she was inundated with the same messages from different women proclaiming how amazing she was, how great she looked and how their miracle products could help her even more, she got suspicious. Ella didn't know what an MLM was, or why she needed these expensive shakes, but it wasn't until she couldn't take the harassment any longer that she looked deeper and started connecting the dots.

The woman is angry she paid 10k to be a "certified life coach". She could have paid the same amount to be a certified cats' aura reader or a certified karma cleanser. She is mad her ridiculous "degree" had a ridiculous curriculum? Well lady, maybe go to an actual school and study some actual science?

I really enjoy learning about MLMs, it scratches an itch I've had in wanting to understand something I grew up surrounded by in Utah. The Dream, is still my favorite podcast about the subject to date, and it has been hard finding podcasts about MLMs that are its equal in content, research, organization, and quality. This podcast feels like it could be a really good resource but the host often interrupts her guests so the episodes are often too long with her doing most of the talking instead of the people she interviewed. (IDK, what's the point in having guests if you're not going to let them talk.) A lot of her interruptions seem like she just really wants her guest, and the audience to *know* she's done her research and she wants to beat the guest to the punch of sharing relevant information.

I love this podcast but she really needs to work on not interrupting her guests so much during their story because she wants to tell her own story. Just wait until they finish speaking at least.
