Leaving the NBA for Jehovah’s Witnesses and more, on the Cult Awareness Podcast

[Darren Collison]

Darren Collison ditched his NBA career right when he had a chance to cash in on free agency. Why? He says it’s because he wants to dedicate his life to his work as a Jehovah’s Witness.

Our ex-JW host, TV actor Jerry Minor, discusses that decision, as well as some key ideas about JW shunning in our new edition of the Cult Awareness Podcast.

You’ll also notice that with this second episode, we’re slipping into a regular format of about 40 minutes in length. Have a listen and then let us know what you think. We would also love to get your questions about the subjects we cover.
