In The Glow by Jessie Gaynor, a desperate young publicist tries to save her career by turning the charismatic leader of a grungy retreat center into the hot new self-care brand.
But is it a wellness retreat or a cult? Brace yourselves as we meander through the life of Jane Dorner, a PR worker navigating a whirlwind of personal chaos and professional desperation. We see as she plunges into a wellness retreat led by the enigmatic Cass in a desperate bid to save her job. Join us as we discuss Jane’s tumultuous life, her transformation from cynic to believer, and the charismatic retreat leader, Cass, who uses her charm like a weapon and will have you questioning your own beliefs!
