I Escaped a Cult on Netflix and YouTube


Natgeo’s documentary “I Escaped a Cult” is available on Netflix.

This was a horrible interviewing experience for me. The whole thing was rushed, I hadn’t slept in days, and I couldn’t muster up the words to describe this broken-off piece of my past—my mind kept drawing blanks. But Rebekah interviewed well, and so did Brent.

I’m quite pleased with the whole series. All episodes shine light into the elitist, the extremist, the shut in mindset. If you wish to understand why people don’t just up and leave cults, these stories will help.
