Nicki Clyne on the NXIVM of things
The fourth interview in the Random Minds Forbidden Conversations series is with actress and advocate Nicki Clyne.
Nicki Clyne began her career as an actor, most notably on the hit television series "Battlestar Galactica." She has worked as a writer, a news analyst and television host, but it wasn’t until she experienced the failings of the criminal justice system first-hand that she decided to dedicate herself to much needed advocacy efforts in the field. She works directly with people inside prison and their families, and produces media that raises awareness around important, sometimes controversial, issues.
In this interview, we discuss NXIVM, media narratives, victimhood vs personal responsibility, the #MeToo movement, the role of power dynamics, the consequences of going against the status quo, the state of Keith Raniere's case today, and more.
