    Cults! They’re a real, crazy, crazy thing and guest Anna Hossnieh (Ethnically Ambiguous Podcast) and host Cassi Jerkins get into some of the biggest cults in the history of the US. They talk about the Rajneeshies, the Branch Davidians, the latest sex cult NXIVM and more. They wonder where exactly does an organization cross the cult line... Like is Scientology a cult? What about Mormonism? Or actor Andrew Kegan’s religious group, “Full Circle”? They even argue that moving to LA is pretty cult-y. LA peeps, you know you’ve caught yourself on a cleanse chanting “I love juice!” That's pretty cult-y. Anna and Cassi also dive into their love of true crime, how working for reality TV is a nightmare and provide hot tips on how to avoid getting into a cult. (Just get a therapist who wears regular clothes.) Enjoy! 


    PS Gyspy Rose Blancharde and her Munchausen by proxy mother was the case we were blanking on names.
