Andrew and Akina Cox: Meet the Moonies

“A hip young artist couple find themselves in an arranged marriage.”

After following the Strangers podcast for a while, I was surprised to come across a couple I recognized. Though I don’t know them well, the moonie community is small, so we went to the same summer camps.

They live on the border between the world of the Unification Church and the normal world. ¬†They’re in a happy relationship with someone who understands the weirdness that goes along with growing up as a moonie, but without actually being in the church anymore.

Honestly, I’m a little jealous of them. To listen to the whole podcast, click below.
