Today on The Good Girl Confessional I’m chatting with Podcaster and producer, Sarah Steel. Sarah is the author of Do As I Say, a book about coercive control and cults, and host of the award winning podcast @letstalkaboutsects

When Sarah launched her podcast in 2017, a podcast dedicated to talking about cults and sects was a new concept. The popularity of her podcast surprised even her, but it quickly gained a large following.

Sarah is a filmmaker and writer with a keen interest in social sciences, culture and psychology. She has now written a book on the subject of cults and coercive control, Do As I Say and is a sought after expert on this topic. Through her podcast, and the bravery of her guests, Sarah shows how anyone could find themselves in a sect or cult.

Her podcast guests have included survivors of cults as well as experts and advocates.

Her guests haves included guests like Sarah Edmondson and her husband Anthony ‘Nippy’ Ames who spent 12 years in NXIVM – the subject of a Netflix docuseries, The Vow. They now host a podcast called A Little Bit Culty

However, Sarah also has deep conversations with survivors of lesser known Australian and international cults also, including Claire Ashman who left Australian cult The Order of St. Charbel.
