Ok, so we had a little mix up with air dates but the good news is that Episode 5: COG and the Media with Christina is available NOW for download on iTunes, Spotify, Libsyn, SoundCloud and other places that you get your podcasts!
Christina grew up in the Children of God (aka The Family International), a group founded in 1968 by the late David Berg. As the organization grew, its members moved all over the world and were coerced into prostitution and other labor to bring in more money and support.
Many children were born overseas, moved around contently, exploited and sexually abused. Christina lived a controlled, isolated existence and was trafficked through many countries well into adulthood.
Finally, as a mother herself, she and her children got out. While rebuilding her life, she appeared on talk shows and other media to discuss her history with the Children of God (COG).
Join us for a talk with Christina about her life, challenges, and leaving the COG, as well as her experiences going public with her story.
