In this episode of the Lions of Liberty Podcast, I welcome in cult expert and deprogramming specialist, Rick Ross of the Cult Education Institute. Rick describes how he first became entrenched in the subject of cults when he realized his grandmother was being preyed upon by a cult at her nursing home.

Throughout her time in office, Pennsylvania state senator LeAnna Washington has made it a priority to help constituents manage the stress and confusion of tax season by offering tax preparation seminars.
