Not Bad

I’m still new and working my way through, and at Ep. 3 I was thinking I wasn’t so keen on this podcast. But I kept listening, and it’s grown on me. (I had the same experience with another podcast that I now love - and where I heard about this podcast - “My Favorite Murder.”)

It’s definitely in-depth and covers lesser-known cults, which is interesting (can anyone say Chilean Nazi cult?). I like that Jo has a different co-host each time, and that they choose the cult. My only big complaint is that there are snacks put out during the recording, and while they at least don’t chew or swallow into the mics, it is very obvious when someone is drinking, has their mouth full, or has just swallowed a bite of food. It’s distracting and a bit annoying.

Cults & comedy = marriage made in heaven

After host Jo Thornley provided a thoroughly delightful Hometown Murder at a live My Favorite Murder show recorded in Melbourne, I was hooked by her super storytelling skills. I have listened through all available episodes of this podcast twice and laughed, then groaned in not-so-surprised horror at some truly awful cult antics, then laughed again at Jo’s wit. Her guests are just as pithy and snarky, and if you are a proper Murderino, you MUST listen to this! Finally, Jo sealed my adoration of her obsession with cults by penning a phenomenal book of the same title and put icing on that cake by reading it for Audible in her usual smashingly brilliant delivery. The only bad thing about this is there aren’t more episodes - yet!
