The boys of FTG (Omar, Seth, and Chris) sat down with an amazing conversation with Mark Karris, a licensed therapist, best-selling author, ordained pastor, adjunct professor, recording artist, and an all around bad ass dude!

From the start of the podcast, which was live of facebook, Mark seemed to "get" us, and opened up to tell his story. There was laughter, and there were tears as Mark shared personal stories about his family and journey into "(de)constructing toward spiritual and emotional healing". 

This episode is guaranteed to pull at your heart strings and leave your eyes wet and your heart full. Find out about what Seth called the "love pentagram" and why Mark just might be my favorite guest to date.

June 1, 2020

This was our opening interview to start the "Big Tent Revival", our free live online conference, and oh boy did we hit the ground running. we had a full cast on hand but Omar and Chris got most of the questions in because Elizabeth was monitoring facebook comments in real time, and Seth was quietly listening lol. Rick Ross was a truly amazing guest, and an expert on the subject of cults. This episode was extra special to us because of our (Omar, and Elizabeth) past experiences in discipleship schools, and Chris and Seth's experience in fundamental christian religions. This episode includes 20 minutes of bonus material that we recorded after the initial interview where our Patreons were able to ask Rick Alan Ross questions. 

Rick Alan Ross is the founder and Executive Director of The Cult Education Institute. He is an internationally known expert regarding destructive cults, controversial groups and movements and author of the book "Cults Inside Out: How People Get In and Can Get Out." Since 1982 he has been studying, researching and responding to the problems often posed by controversial authoritarian groups and movements.
