Dark Dark World – A True Crime Podcast – Joe vs The Cult – An Elan School Interview – In a special edition of Dark Dark World, host Jordan Crittenden interviews Joe, the creator of the web-comic Joe vs Elan School: a True Cult Classic. Joe tells of his experiences at a behavioral school called Elan. His story begins at age 16, when two large men broke down his bedroom door, hogtied him, carried them downstairs, stuffed him into a van and drove away. This was the start of a bizarre and confusing time for Joe. At Elan, he would suffer fear, humiliation, and abuse. All in the name of “therapeutic behavioral modification.”
