Love it!

I LOVE Cult Faves! Gwenda and Cher are deee-lightful and bc this is one of my favorite things to think/talk about I am always so impressed with their selection of focus and details—and overlaps! Hollywood detours and Satanic Panic tie-in’s are so much fun! As an added bonus they are always drawing connections to the tribal world we live in. Thanks for dispelling nonsense and retelling important stories with the wisdom of hindsight. Why aren’t more people talking about this stuff?!

Love it!!

By far one of my favorite podcasts, so awesome to find some lovely hosts to share my crazed obsession with cults! Looking forward to the Wild Wild Country episode!

Much to See Here ,

Interesting

Refreshing, funny, depressing, these ladies really run the bredth of emotion. Even if you don't like cult talk, it's important to know the techniques they use to trap you and how vulnerable we all are.
