A New Podcast That's Intrigue Will Draw You In

DECEIVED: THE MOO YEARS is the true story of one young man’s compelling, at times terrifying, former involvement with the martial arts cult Chung Moo Quan. Based on his soon-to-be-published memoir titled DECEIVED: A JOURNEY INTO DARKNESS, author/producer Russell Johnson’s 12-week podcast combines a powerful narrative and witness interviews with martial artists, mind control experts, and former victims of the Chung Moo Quan.

What Audience Members are Saying...

“It’s certainly the most compelling angle on the martial world I’ve seen in years.” - Calvin Yocum Motion Picture Story Analyst at 20th Century Fox
“When Russell first told me his story, I was riveted. As a student of thrillers, and having made one already, I know a great story when I hear it. If it were fiction, it would be hard to believe, the fact that it’s true makes it even more compelling. But the single element that makes this a great story is the fact that Russell is still alive to tell it. And is willing to tell it. Every story needs a hero and heroes need courage. I look forward to reading this courageous book.” - Barry L. Caldwell, filmmaker
