‘The Fall’– Podcast and book announcement by Toni Natalie & Chet Hardin


“Season One of The Fall [of NXIVM] podcast will launch Valentine’s Day, 2019, followed by the publication of our book The Fall: Toni Natalie’s Saga to Survive Keith Raniere and NXIVM.”

There is also a Twitter account @thefallofNXIVM

This is Toni on a podcast with Erin Martin from two days ago.


As one commenter wrote, “Toni Natalie lived the pre-history of NXIVM and has been hounded by Raniere’s flying monkeys and lawyers for nearly 20 years. Chet Hardin was one of the first Albany journalists to expose NXIVM. This will be an interesting perspective, different from the Sarah Edmondson TV series (that we’re also looking forward to) and the other media announcements (some of which may just be cashing in on celebrity involvement and salacious scandalous sex slavery and human branding of slender starving brainwashed but gorgeous women- which some say is what the Frank Report does.]

She was once his sweetheart but when she tried to leave him, he tried to force her back. After she left, he spent 20 years hunting her down, trying to destroy her. Through it all Toni Natalie fought Keith Raniere – not because she wanted to, but because she had to – because she wouldn’t back down and surrender.

Her tale will be a gripping one. She was the first, the pioneer, the very first one to stand up against the monster Raniere. Think of this when you think of her. We others who stood and fought against Raniere had others who had come before. There were media reports and other victims to corroborate the true evil that is Keith Raniere – to help offset the waves of flying monkeys and the Bronfman fortune that would be set in motion against us.

But Toni Natalie had none of this. She in the beginning was all alone. Her against Raniere and clever Nancy Salzman and the Bronfman millions. Her alone. And she held the fight by herself. She was the sole voice at first that appeared in articles and fought him in court. Her against millions and no media exposing him – until she did it – first with the Forbes article in 2003.

She gained allies; she found helpers but for twenty years of her life she tried to shed herself of the monster. Her mother and father and brother went to their graves with her still fighting him. If the monster is in a cage – where he belongs – remember he terrorized Toni Natalie for 20 years and she did not surrender.

  • Well, I hope Keith’s happy with what he’s gotten to date, because (by the grace of God), he won’t be getting anything else, ever. No 10-day birthday “celebrations,” donated millions, sex at the snap of a finger, or unquestioning adulation. KR, you are a moron. You had what many men would have been considered more than adequate, but, no, that was not enough – you HAD to push the envelope: a slave ring, underage sex, physical torture, terroristic litigation, and tax evasion, to name a few. Please enjoy your new accommodations and your 1000+ calorie a day diet – may they become permanent. And may your victims begin to heal, with you out of the picture. Thank you, EDNY! Thank you, Toni, Chet and Catherine!

  • I like the background image on Toni’s web site, which looks like it was a literal scan of something Keith drew for her. It gives the viewer an instant perspective on what his irrationality was like.

    It’s interesting that the sin of ‘being prideful’ is what he was criticizing her for, yet he had a 10 day long “VanGuard week” to celebrate his yearly birthday…..which is something way beyond what even Adolf Hitler’s pride demanded.

    Adolf Hitler only required ONE day each year for people to lavish praise on him for his birthday, but Keith accepted a 10 day yearly tribute for his birthday? LOL.

    As for truly great men……Gandhi didn’t require that kind of praise for his yearly birthday and neither does the Dalai Lama. Yet Keith likes to fancy himself in the same light as these ‘unprideful’ men……and his followers don’t even have the free will to question why, for fear of being accused of “being prideful” themselves, LOL.

    That’s some wacky shit right there. 🙂

  • Posts here are definitely moderated. They shouldn’t be. My original post (which didn’t get moderated) was to say everything Toni Natalie “det al” has sacrificed/worked hard for is now reaching global attention. Well done! Think journarlism + social media like that birdy social media figure who networks one journalist to the next and so forth and so on – If I mention certain big company name giants the posts are simply not posted.

    Look: https://www.independent.co.uk/arts-entertainment/tv/news/allison-mack-sex-cult-latest-smallville-involvement-nxivm-age-recruit-a8355506.html

    I also said that in Clare and Sara’s mothers local (pub) in England tongues will be wagging.

    Also include all off-site links here peeps whether good and bad as it helps with SEO.

    FWIW my username is based in this…


    How ironic for KR.

    • “et al” and I type at 100 miles per hour without commars but the point of evolution is if we can txt speak 🙂

  • Toni Natalie, that was a fantastic podcast, very much look forward to yours and Chet Hardin’s book. You sound so level and lovely, after all you’ve been through, lets hope you can regain measure for measure, at least in financial terms, what was taken from you in malicious and vexatious litigation, as to the human cost justice is only partial redress, you can’t get back time, nor eliminate pain entirely, although with your outlook and all the good you do I hope you’re rewarded to the power of twenty-fold!

  • Everyone is gonna try for some $$$.

    That’s how all these dipshits got caught up in it all in the first place. Looking for easy money.

    • And that is likely one of the big factors that saved me from getting sucked in beyond an intensive. Thank God.

  • All of your efforts have not gone unnoticed BTW as this is global news. I bet even the locals in the pub near Clare and Sara’s mother know about it all now…


    P.S. Unlike KR Google actually rewards those who help it so by linking all the articles together you will help improve the rankings of this website and reach out to more people. After all who doesn’t use the internet nowadays?…


  • One of the reasons it is important for the release of NXIVM related podcasts, movies, books, blogs, FrankReports, etc is because the only reason the ciminal enterprise prospered for so long was people being fearful of speaking out and exposing Keith. The more people disclose and expose, the better. Many of us (me included), have been chicken to chirp about Keith because we didn’t want to feel his unrelenting wrath. Hopefully, those days are over and he continues to be exposed. There is a lot more out there that has yet to come to the surface. I will not miss a word Toni speaks.

    • Thank you so much for your support. We would not be here without #Whistleblower Frank Parlato, and yes, we have so much more to come. #NoMoreVanguard

  • Never let a good tragedy go to waste. So let’s take count: books by Catherine and Toni. Tv/movies by Edmonson, king of queens lady. I’m sure there’s more and much more to come. I’m thinking about a reality show on the commenters section of frank report. Why we are so interested. Our personal and emotional interests in Nxivm, etc…. I’ll be getting in touch with all of you soon. Release date scheduled for the week before any of this other stuff comes out.

    • Toni’s and Chet’s material will be much more genuine than Catherine’s – Catherine is clearly looking only to cash in, and has no real “insider” insights. Toni in particular can give an excellent account of what it’s like to be in KR’s cross hairs for years, with him relentlessly pursing her financial ruin. I hope Toni and Chet make MILLIONS from their efforts!

      • If you read about the description into catherine s book, it’s not only about her story but there is interwiews and research about this. She helped a lot of this women and even Tony thanks her for all she has done. I think it s different perspective. Hollywood does’nt seem interested by nxium case like it was for weinstein.

      • OCD, Thank you for your support, and belief in our project, we are proud of what we are doing. Please, keep in mind without my mother – whom you will see and hear throughout our multi-media podcast and book, I would not be here today. She fought for me until her last day.

        Oddly enough 10/17/14, was the day I lost my mother; it was the worst day of my life. On 10/17/17, I got my life back, in part because of Catherine’s strength to go to the authorities to get her child out. When nothing with the local Albany police happened, she made the choice to go public. Without her name recognition, Keith may not be in jail today. What wouldn’t you do as a mother to save your child? I don’t think she ever thought it would get this far without India getting out. Sadly, there are other parents out there experiencing the same thing – maybe through Catherine’s book they will learn what mistakes not to make, and how to move forward to save their children. Send prayers to the people who still have loved ones in, for what they need are prayers, not more pain.

      • Please keep an open mind about Catherine’s book and any other output that may come from her. She is not in it for a money grab,. I have spent time with her and have seen the look of anguish on her face when discussing India. She is a mother, daughter, human being and someone I can call a friend. She has helped women in need of cult exit counseling financially thru her foundation, and that isn’t often mentioned.

        Catherine hand delivered a letter I myself wrote to the office of our now disgraced former Attorney General’s office when she met with his office back in October. Mine was just one in a stack she went out of her way to collect.

        Toni has her story, Sarah and Anthony have their own, and Catherine and Frank each have their own. Heck, I was even waiting for Kristin Keeffe to publish her tell-all. There is room in this for everyone who has ever been harmed by this destructive cult masquerading as a human potential movement.

        I want all these projects to succeed and this story to stay relevant so NXIVM is removed from my community once and for all and Keith is put away for life. I hope to never see him wearing the same clothes for days in a row and his unforgettable walk strolling thru Knox Woods and Stage Run Plantation again.

        And, Toni, you rock my fellow feisty Italian gal who also talks with her hands (wink wink) . I’ll be all ears for your podcast, book etc and hope our paths cross in person in the not too distant future.
