Elle Beau speaks on Episode 2 of “That’s a Cult” Podcast

Recently, a Manchester-based journalist, Helen McCarthy, approached various members of the MLM (and anti-MLM) community, myself included. 

Helen is the face behind That’s a Cult? Podcasts. Each episode is about groups of people on the internet and why they connect with each other. It’s also about how these groups could sometimes – even just a little bit – be compared to cults. For Episode 2’s case, MLMs are the primary focus.

That's a Cult

Helen wanted to present a balanced view of MLMs for this episode of her podcast series, aptly titled ‘MLM Schemes‘. Of course, I was happy to provide an interview for the anti-MLM side. You’ll also hear from folk such as John Evans of Juice Plus / MLM Lies Exposed, JeromeThe Finance Guy and of course those in the pro-MLM community, including a serial-MLMer, and one with a downline of over 20 people.

Helen also scoured the people of Reddit, and found a gentleman who gave his viewpoint of the law of attraction
