11/18/2019 The Sanctuary for Independent Media 4:30 PM, workshop with Hardin discussing investigative journalism.
7:00 pm – 9:00 pm Discussion of his pioneering role in the investigation of NXIVM
Join journalist Chet Hardin for a discussion of his pioneering role in the investigation of NXIVM as a reporter for the Capital Region weekly Metroland.
He is the only journalist to play a midnight game of volleyball with actress Allison Mack, Seagrams heiress Clare Bronfman, and the now-notorious Keith Raniere. This was in 2009, long before the eventual arrests of Raniere and Mack on the charges of sex trafficking and forced labor. Hardin’s writing for Metroland was the beginning of the end for NXIVM.
