This week we continue our series on Happy Science! Last week we covered the man, the myth, the loser, Ryuho Okawa, but today we're going over the cult's insane beliefs! Mando takes Paige and Andrea through 20+ years of anime and even a killer "Boner Jamz '69" mixtape. Blaze it like a Laser Cat riding a hoverboard, because it's about to get nuts.
This week we're covering another one of the most requested cults we've been asked to cover in our "stint" as a podcast. Known for producing anime for over 20 years and having some of the most insane beliefs of any "major religion", Happy Science is the perfect subject for a Cult Podcast two part series. In part one, Mando takes Paige and Andrea through the life of Ryuho Okawa, President of Happy Science. Get ready for poetry, anime, and our favorite new character: Dr. Lube!
We're back with a real cult this week after our April Fool's Day romp. (Allegedly.) And what better way to bring us back than with one of the most requested cults that's ever graced our email inbox. (Allegedly.) Paige takes Mando and Andrea through a group who's fresh off of losing a lawsuit and their leader who's soon to be fresh off of losing a game of street tennis to Armando. (Allegedly.) Also, we're going to be completely honest with you, the last 8 minutes are entirely about Australian spiders and it's both hilarious and terrifying to anyone who hates spiders. (Not allegedly. Definitely.) So, get your flamethrowers ready. We're headed to Australia, baby.
Oh, was last week too silly for you? Well, we're back in full force this week covering the horrendous events of the last few weeks that took place in Montana. Join Mando as he takes Paige and Andrea through the Project at Eden's Gate and their leader: Joseph Seed, aka the Father. Ominous much?

Whoa, boy, we're back for more Red Pill Theory and how it turns into the ugly awful underbelly of the internet that is "Black Pill Theory".
