37: CULTS! The Moonies aka the Unification Church, Universal Medicine, Serge Benhayon and more…

Hi Eavesdroppers! This week Geordie & Michelle are talking about CULTS – yes, it’s the topic that just gives and gives and in this episode, Geordie kicks off the ep by talking about The Moonies, otherwise known as the Unification Church! You know, the funny cult from the 70s where loads of people who had never met popped on polyester suits and white dresses and headed to mass weddings to marry a stranger… Well, it turns out that the cult we thought had died out decades ago is still going strong, with links to the far right all over the world – who knew! Tune in to find out more!

Michelle then talks about an Australian cult that’s gone global called Universal Medicine, headed up by a bankrupt ex tennis coach turned self-proclaimed Messiah called Serge Benhayon, who is the reincarnation of Leonardo da Vinci, Pythagoras and others, all at once… Never heard of Universal Medicine? Probably for the best because it’s a cult that uses wellness to draw you in, and its beliefs are out of this world… Listen in to find out more and make your own mind up about whether or not you think it’s a cult!

We hope you enjoy this week’s episode and remember, wherever you are, whatever you do, just keep Eavesdroppin’!
