DIE-ALOGUE: a true crime conversation: Dr. Janja Lalich

Dr. Lalich helps us understand the concept of “bounded choice,” and why she prefers that term over brainwashing. You can find a book she wrote (one of many!) on the subject here, as well as her website which is a wonderful resource. I am grateful for her time as she is doing interviews all the time these days- not a coincidence as we discuss! Find out why the pandemic is the perfect breeding ground for cults and what she thinks about QAnon.

Listen to the podcast episode here:
