Teal Swan is an internet guru who finds followers largely online. She presents herself as a healer, but critics say she is playing with fire and has dangerous ideas about treating people who may be suicidal. She's the subject of Gizmodo's excellent The Gateway podcast. We're joined by host Jennings Brown and producer Jessica Glazer to talk about the trouble with Teal Swan.

Jennings meets Teal at her retreat center in Costa Rica. He spends a week there, observing her therapy methods and getting to know some of the people who leave their lives behind to live with Teal and run her spiritual startup. It all starts with a death meditation, and it only gets stranger from there.Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices
