"This is such a powerful episode. Listening to such an articulate/rational person describing her experiences with WBC shows the power of the brain to conform and bend to ideology. Also an interesting lesson on first amendment rights. "

"Amazing episode. Megan is an incredibly interesting guest. She does a great job of explaining her past, how the Westboro Baptist Church is actually made up of intelligent people, and how Twitter (of all things) helped her escape that cult. Very powerful. She also did some serious educating on the first amendment"
