Shiny Happy Wife: Tia Levings On Christian Fundamentalism (Part 2)

Shiny Happy Wife: Tia Levings On Christian Fundamentalism (Part 2)

This episode is sponsored by BetterHelp. 

If you didn’t listen to part 1 of this double whammy—stop, drop, and scroll down (or up, depending) because you’ll be lost without the context. 

On this continuation, we hear more from author Tia Levings about her experiences with Christian Fundamentalism, and more specifically how she got out of a situation that was “a little bit culty,” to say the least. We also dip back into the Duggar family and the recent documentary uncovering the less-than-perfect reality hidden by a shiny, happy front. The story is, unfortunately, far more common than you might think. 

You can learn more about Tia’s own story in her forthcoming memoir, ‘A Well-Trained Wife,’ which will be released in August of 2024. In the meantime, you can keep up with Tia at the below links:
