Join Cheri Roberts FRI. June 17 @ 6pPDT/9pEDT for a serious discussion on cults, past and present. The pop culture term, 'drinking the Kool-Aid', stemmed from the tragedy of Jonestown, but what is its modern meaning and why should you care?

There are countless cults past and present. There are also myriad types of cults; from apocalyptic cults, to political cults, to religious cults, and more. No demographic or socioeconomic threshold is immune to the potential influence of a cult, or be incapable of cult-like behavior. Today, self-inflicted isolation occurs across the globe in the privacy of one’s own home via the internet and digital technology.

The leaders in JonestownRajneesheepuram, and Heaven’s Gate demonstrated many traits of both schizophrenia and narcissism. What impact would technology have had on recruiting, isolating, and controlling followers?

You have questions, I have answers. Don't miss this show. 

Let's challenge the rhetoric!
