Experts like Echkart Tolle and Christine Cocchiola give advice. Whistleblower testimony exposes the trials cult members have to endure.
Cult leaders are individuals who prey on others for personal or financial gain. Most cult leaders are narcissists who do not believe in the stories they spin. They only seek to exploit others for their own gain. The reason cults are so effective at gaining members is because members don't know they're in a cult. The leaders target underserved, vulnerable people and offer them guidance. The breadth of the manipulation in a cult will be shocking to many. The hosts of A Little Bit Culty show how it works.
Sarah and Nippy discuss the hardship of rebuilding after leaving a cult. Cultic abuse, in some cases, can take years to unlearn. The mission of A Little Bit Culty is to help listeners see the signs and escape the coercive control of a cult. Cults often hide their true nature, and most members find out too late.
