Mystery. Manipulation. Murder. Cults are associated with all of these. But what really goes on inside a cult? More specifically, what goes on inside the minds of people who join cults and leaders who start them? Every Tuesday, Greg and Vanessa (co-hosts of the podcast Serial Killers) explore the history and psychology behind the most notorious cults. Cults is part of the Parcast Network and is a Cutler Media production.

Can't wait for this show!
I'm so excited for Cults to premiere! I love Greg and Vanessa in the Serial Killers podcast, so I already know that I'm going to love this show. The trailer sounds amazing! Can't wait!
Stoked for this! The trailer is dope and hella creepy. I love psychology and I've always wondered what kind of people join cults, so this is right up my alley!
Yes! Finally found a podcast about cults
Sold. The psychology of cults is fascinating. I can't wait to see what the Parcast team does with this podcast. Their other podcast serial killers is extremely fascinating!
