Like hundreds before her, Katherine Daniel was sent by her parents to a school for troubled teens. The Academy at Ivy Ridge claimed to use therapy and recreational activities to help its students. Instead, teens suffered mental and physical abuse in a program that operated like a cult. Years later, Katherine and her former classmates rummaged through the files and videotapes left behind in the abandoned school. Their goal was to come to terms with what happened to them within its walls and hold those responsible to account. The Netflix documentary series The Program: Cons, Cults and Kidnapping is a gripping look at the so-called Troubled Teen Industry by those traumatized from its practices. It also explores the company whose business model is to keep parents paying huge fees while their children suffer horrors at the hands of their schools’ staff. In this episode of You Can't Make This Up, host Rebecca Lavoie interviews Director Katherine Kubler. SPOILER ALERT! If you haven't watched The Program: Cons, Cults and Kidnapping yet, make sure to add it to your watch-list before listening on.  Listen to more from Netflix Podcasts.
