I’ve thought a lot about starting a podcast and have always concluded: “no thank you.” Cause, my thoughts are just that - thoughts. And no one needs to listen to them as if they’re peer-reviewed scientific data. Plus, I’m very much in process (hence “IN PROCESS COLLECTIVE”.). So, what if I say some words and then later I’m like - “Nah. I think different words now.” On the other hand, I also do love to process (hence “IN PROCESS COLLECTIVE”). And more than that, I wish more of us made space for processing - both our own and each other. So, then I thought - what if I could have a podcast where I get to process what I’m learning in messy/real-ish time. And the result is this absolute treasure of a trainwreck. Enjoy. This Podcast-ish Thing is available for patrons & paid subscribers. If you're like - what's the deal with that, you can learn more about why on my about tab!
Episode details

I’ve finally been watching “The Vow” on HBO (a doc about the NXIVM cult). I tell you what, watching it through a lens of coercive control is fascinating. It is sort of (definitely) disturbing to me to see the parallels with so many high-control religious spaces. eeeeekkkk.
