“Cultish” will be a powerful and timely deep dive into how cults maintain their power. According to host Amanda Montell, whose own father escaped from a cult as a teenager, we’ve been thinking about cults in completely the wrong way.

Using an incisive, compelling and often funny tone, “Cultish” will unpack what cult influence looks, sounds, and feels like, and how it imbues our everyday lives.
