A Little Bit Culty

Seek Safely: Jean Brown & Dr. Glenn Patrick Doyle on the Self-Help Industry

The self-help book industry alone is expected to grow from $10.5 billion annually to $15 billion by 2025. Of course, with that kinda dough floating around, a raging demand for personal growth has led to a plethora of tools aimed at achieving it. Unfortunately, there are people that seek to take advantage of this, leading to dangerous—or even deadly—consequences.

When Kirby Brown was only 38 years old, a man named James Arthur Ray pushed her to stick out an incredibly hot sweat lodge session in Sedona, Arizona. A self-proclaimed “guru,” Ray allegedly urged participants to disregard their physical discomfort, even ignoring their pleas for help. Tragically, Brown and two other individuals lost their lives during the hellish experience.

On today’s episode, we’re joined by two guests: Jean Brown, who is Kirby’s sister and the co-author of This Sweet Life: How we lived after Kirby died, a memoir she wrote with her mother about what happened to Kirby and its larger implications for the self-help industry. Joining her is Dr. Glenn Patrick Doyle, a psychologist who has teamed up with Jean and the SEEK SAFELY non-profit org and podcast. Founded by George and Ginny Brown, Kirby and Jean’s parents, SEEK SAFELY is aimed at passing legislation within the self-help industry to prevent abuse in the future.

A New Science of the Afterlife with Daniel Drasin

Daniel Drasin, award-winning documentary filmaker, photographer and media producer for more than six decades has been actively investigating the field of afterlife communication through traditional mental and physical mediumship as well as modern electronics. We'll discuss his journey in this field, his paranormal experiences and explore what that "veil" that separates this world from the next really might be. Language is important and we'll explore why that is related to this topic and Daniel will distinguish between skepticism and pseudoskepticism.
