Atheists on Air: Beyond the Trailer Park Ep. 170: "Jilly Juice:" The New "Poop Cult"
Oct 1, 2018 7:30pm EDT

This week, are going to look at a cult leader who espouses some very dangerous wellness advice - Jillian Epperly and her poop cult. While recently many vloggers, bloggers, and even Dr. Phil have focused on the dangers of the salt content, it's been noticed that Epperly's actions are very cult like. That is what we are going to focus upon tonight using Boze Herrinton's "signs of a cult" parameters.

One point to note, there is no overt religious overtones to what Epperly promotes which makes this exploration interesting. As atheists we are generally concerned with overt harms caused by religion but here, there are none. What is demonstrated is the lack of critical thought or education and devotion to a collective that makes some pretty outlandish promises based on virtually nothing.

Atheists on Air: Beyond The Trailer Park Ep. 169: Falun Gong
Sep 24, 2018 7:30pm EDT

Many of you may be asking, what the hell is Falun Gong? Some of you may have heard of the unusual cult before, but few people outside China will know much about them.

If you happen to see them in a park, they look like they are just practicing a variation of Tai Chi or perhaps they are sitting in quiet meditation. They certainly seem pretty innocuous.

However, they are just as wacky as Scientology and potentially just as dangerous, if not more so. Famously persecuted in China, tonight we take a look at what Falun Gong is and why it might actually be dangerous.

From claims of superpowers to the creation of government bodies with names right out of a James Bond adventure, we look at the history of the cult, it's claims, it's problems an it's people.

Atheists on Air: Beyond the Trailer Park Ep. 168: NXIVM Update
Sept. 17, 2018 7:30pm EDT

So when we last talked NXIVM, it was just a strange blip known for branding women. Today it's a full blown sex cult with 5 defendants facing time in prison. It encompasses at least 3 countries and some big name players potentially culpable in the possible illegal activity. It has turned into a "bizarre world of messianic pretensions, idiosyncratic language and ritualistic practices."

Tonight Deb, Beth, and Morgan revisit NXIVM to try and sort out what has transpired

Atheists on Air: Beyond the Trailer Park Ep. 167: What You CAN Do
Sep 10, 2018 7:30pm EDT

The last while, we've had some heavy discussion about clergy abuse, stories that have angered and outraged many of us. Many of us have felt frustrated and helpless to do anything about the problem, especially as it seems to be a more egregious and widespread problem daily.

So what can we do? Well tonight we are joined by Thomas of Holy Koolaid and Scott Ladoucier to tell us what they've been doing to help the victims and shine a light on the continuing cover-up perpetuated by abusive clergy. We'll learn what they've been up to and how you can help.
