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!

Homestead Heritage

00:0000:00

This episode is not for the faint of heart. This is, by far, the most disturbing group we've discussed to date. The episode contains graphic details involving minors, sexual abuse, physical abuse, and psychological abuse.  There is a LOT of swearing.  Consider yourself warned.

If you've made it to the play button then you're ready to hear about the Homestead Heritage group.  They have draft horses, great ice cream, and expensive PB&J.

Last time, we talked about the early days and develpment of Aum Shinrikyo.  This week, we dive into the consequences of this doomsday cult.  There's in-depth discussion of VX and Sarin gas, we politely decine an endorcement deal with AXE body spray, we go through the most notorious crimes committed by the group, and we reveal the two cults that became when Aum Shinrikyo fell apart.

This week's episode is our first two-parter! 

We discuss Aum Shinrikyo, or as Jess likes to call them, "That cult I totally could have joined if I lived in Japan."  We discuss Austrailian sheep ranches, the social lives of scientists, and the infamous Hurricane Ham of 2016.
