Came from MFM stayed for the cults
So I kind of love this podcast. I heard Jo's hometown on My Favorite Murder and fell in love with her humor so I decided to check out the podcast. So glad I did! 10/10
Interesting concept but falls short
A podcast about cults seems like an interesting concept. But Zealot falls short in almost every respect. Poor sound quality, poor joke quality, and poor analysis of the cults they attempt to discuss.
I listened to a few episodes and was entertained - but the Moonies episode was terrible. Making fun of Korean names with an over-affected accent made me super uncomfortable, as did the joke (?) about being disappointed to be matched with a 5'2" Japanese man over a 6'3" blond. Guys. Come on.
