About The Show

 Gooned is a podcast about the Troubled Teen Industry (TTI), a network of profit-incentivized behavior modification facilities for youth ranging from wilderness programs to therapeutic boarding schools.

 

This industry's predatory tactics capitalize on families in crisis and victimize hundreds of thousands of children and teens every year.

Hear from survivors, parents, former staff members, and activists who reveal the dark truth behind a well-kept facade reaching into the public school, family court, and juvenile justice systems. 

 

Dive into an undercover investigation that exposes admissions directors, program administrators, and goons, the legal kidnappers who snatch children from their beds and transport them thousands of miles from home.
