Cecilia Peck & Inbal Lessner – Seduced: Inside the Nxivm Cult

EToday on the podcast, the women who brought you new Starz documentary Seduced: Inside the Nxivm Cult. I had the pleasure of talking with the Executive Producers Cecilia Peck and Inbal Lessner about how this four part series came to be. The first order of business was telling the women’s stories by women – all in key positions of production. We talk about how a cult member trying to recruit Cecilia led them to this dark story, how India Oxenberg became the focal point of the series and what it was like producing this series at the same time as The Vow.

It’s a beautiful story following 4 trans kids over the span of five years, documenting their lives and their families, amidst conflict, celebration and change. What makes it even more interesting is all the families live in (conservative) Kansas City, KS against the backdrop of a harrowing political environment for the trans community. It’s a fascinating film and conversation and I hope you’ll check it out and listen! Link to film: https://www.hbo.com/documentaries/transhood Follow me: Instagram Twitter realityofreality.com
