Cargo Cults

00:0000:00

The Prime Directive is not just a set of rules; it is a philosophy...and a very correct one.  History has proven again and again that whenever mankind interferes with a less developed civilization, no matter how well intentioned that interference may be, the results are invariably disastrous.

                    --Jean-Luc Picard, 2364

Join us as we take a look at some egregious violations of the Prime Directive!

The Quiverfull Movement

00:0000:00

This is one of the rare episodes where we're giving you a head's up: this episode is not for the faint of heart.  If you have issues with listening to violence against women or children, this episode might not be for you.  It's not an easy episode to listen to.

The Quiverfull Movement is NOT a cult, but is a religious movement that is very conducive to the creation of cults so we wanted to talk about it.  We discuss the principles of the movement, how it started, and the goals of the movement. This episode also contains spoilers for The Handmaid's Tale.

Buddahfield

00:0000:00

Banana Hammocks and Meditation, what could be more serene?  Not joining a cult!  This episode we discuss Buddahfield, a group that's ripe (no pun intended) with sexual abuse and brainwashing.  The subject of the 2016 award nominated film Holy Hell, the Buddahfield is the cult of beauty.

Details on the Buddahfield giveaway (October 2017) will be available on the Podcast's Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, so check it out and GOOD LUCK!

Church of the SubGenius

00:0000:00

Chill out and just be! That's the major tenent of the group we're looking at today.  The Church of the SubGenius is considered by many to be a parody religion, so don't approach this episode too seriously!  There's a BUNCH of laughing, which is all church approved!  We hope you have as much fun with this group as we did.

We're trying out some new music this week, so let us know what you think!
