UA-108647294-1 Cult Podcast

We're back with a continuation on our dive into early colonial America. Instead of focusing on some stuck-up murderous trespassers, join Armando as he takes Paige and Andrea through the early days of humanity and the birth of Western Witchcraft, one of history's most misunderstood topics. Are witches real? Is magic just "fancy lying"? When is the Las Vegas Black Magic Meet Up? The answers to all of these questions, and more, lie inside of this episode. Do you dare to listen?

We're back with a new episode on new religious groups in the new world. That's right, we on that new-new (new). Join Paige as she takes Mando and Andrea through part two of her series on the Puritans, and other colonists, as they arrive in what would someday become America. From a lesson on the world's worst cruise ship to a jingle for a Spanish-English mingle, this one is as informative as it is hilarious. Now, grab a well toned peck or bicep and strap in. It's about to get pilgrim-y up in this thing.

Also, we're doing our first annual Cult Podcast Secret Spooky Santa! Shouts out to Kristin for setting it up! To join in the festive fun join our Facebook Group (a link is available at the bottom of our website) and check the post at the top of the page.

So, you definitely don't wanna miss this.

We're taking a week off to celebrate Paige's wedding! However, before she eloped with her lumberjack beau, we recorded this Fire Madness episode (ironically days before a fire broke out a mere 15 miles away from where we record).

We'll be back to our normal schedule next week with the final episode of our series on The Chicago Rippers!

As we prep our new live show for 2020 we thought we'd put the six months we spent researching to use by sharing the absolutely insane story of The Chicago Rippers. This group of cannibalistic, Satan worshiping, heavy metal blasting murderers are definitely some of the most terrifying people to ever come out of the murder capital of America: the Midwest. Join us as Mando takes Paige and Andrea through the life of their leader, Robin Gecht. See how he went from the King of Hashbrowns to the Dark Lord of Slashtown. Buckle up. This series is gonna get wild.

We're back with a group that might actually bust a Kappa in you. Join us as Paige takes Mando and Andrea through the history of Nigerian Confraternities.

Well, this is it. The final episode of Cult Podcast. Mando has gone full Flat Earther and Paige's brain just exploded during the recording session. I hope you've all enjoyed the ride. We'll see you in Flat Heaven. But, until then, join us as Mando takes Paige and Andrea through the beliefs, history, and spread of the fastest growing conspiracy theory. This cult-like group of "woke folk" have taken the internet (mostly YouTube) by storm and it's time to find out where they come from.
