Cher and Gwenda are fascinated with cults. Cult Faves explores that fascination in all its dark (and sometimes ridiculous) glory. The show's net will be cast wide, encompassing cults both so real they could be fictional and so fictional (we hope) they could never be real. Come along as the ladies discuss why you should never, ever drink anyone else's Kool-Aid.
