BONUS - Ex-COBU Cult Member & Author, James LaRue

Erin talks to James LaRue about his 14 years in the Church of Bible Understanding (COBU) cult. James is currently an artist and author who writes about his experiences in the COBU and explores the psychology of “total institutions” – a concept applied by cults throughout history, and a framework that makes it very difficult (and sometimes impossible) for members to escape.
