Episode #6 - "Louisiana Cults‪"‬ Human Fuckery

    • True Crime

Cults—they’re not just for aspiring Hollywood celebrities anymore! With their inviting exterior and savvy intimidation tactics, cults like Scientology, Jonestown, and the Branch Davidians have captivated curious onlookers for centuries. But as the internet continues to isolate Americans and spread misinformation faster than COVID-19 at a pool party, they’ve also become a chilling part of the mainstream political landscape. Hosts Kimberly and Edward report on The Church of Sacrifice and Hosanna Church, two very real cults in Louisiana’s semi-recent history. Special guest judges Meghann McCracken (screenwriter and essayist) and Jared Loper (Sucker Free Jiu-Jitsu), both former members of extreme religious sects, join Human Fuckery in the studio for a wild chat covering QAnon, HBO’s “The Vow” and NXIVM, and a whole lot more that will leave you going “Uh...W.T.F.” If you like this episode, support our team and get exclusive access to bonus stories, interviews, and content at http://www.patreon.com/humanfuckery
