Ep 457 – Matt’s NEW PPI – Part 1
What is it like recognizing that you were part of a cult and are now playing for the other team? No, I’m not taking about religion. I’m talking about Matt’s experience as a sex crimes prosecutor and now as a criminal defense attorney. Big things are brewing in Matt’s Long’s world. You will be hearing about them soon enough, but for now, let’s catch up with Matt in a new and improved Personal Priesthood Interview (PPI).
