Support Us

There are a number of ways that you can support the show.

Let's Talk About Sects is a completely independent production, started by Sarah in her sharehouse bedroom in Sydney's inner west.

The motivations behind the creation of the show are: to provide a platform for survivors to tell their stories; to destigmatise the victims of cults; and to demonstrate how easy it can be for people to fall under the spell of a leader who may eventually compromise their morals and ethics.

Sarah hopes that in sharing these stories we can bring recognition to victims' experiences, advocate for change, and help the public to recognise red flags so that they don't find themselves in similar situations.

Sponsorship and advertising help to cover some of the costs of production, which include various subscriptions for research, editing, software and hardware, studio hire, hosting expenses, travel, original music composition, and of course Sarah's time. But the support of listeners is the most valuable of all.


With Patreon, you can give a small monthly donation towards the creation of the show. You can also access perks like ad-free episodes in your own RSS feed, stickers and buttons, and even personalised audio recordings. Become a Patron here.


Acast+ subscribers can also access ad-free and early release episodes of Let's Talk About Sects for a small monthly donation. Find out more here.
