Between bowls of curry in 2019 we discussed our fascination with cults, religion, and hanging out more often. Out of that conversation, we came up with the idea for our own cult and our own podcast that would give us a chance to meet together every week, talk about things that fascinate us, and if everything goes right, enjoy a nice hot sauna afterwards. Well, our plan worked. This is our “mostly harmless” cult and our podcast “Mom, I Joined a Cult”. Each week we talk about a different cult, discuss what they got right, and what they got wrong. And then take one of the cult’s beliefs and incorporate it into our own.
