Have you heard of the cult next door?

Tracy is a Journalism Lecturer and Religion Reporter from Pullman, WA. She favors “Ted Radio Hour: NPR” because listening to other’s views opens her mind to new ideas. When she is not nurturing her houseplants, she is riding her road bike. In her time on the TEDx Spokane stage, Tracy wants to normalize the cult experience. She hopes to “shed the shame that comes from it (cults)”. Tracy shares her experience growing up in a cult, how her and her mother ended up there, and the shape of their relationship now.
