A podcast about the modern day "cults" we all follow. Do you think SoulCycle is a cult? What about Elon Musk stans? Or the Royal Family? What about spiritual influencers? Is Instagram itself a cult? We’re Sounds Like a Cult, a podcast that analyzes a different zeitgeisty group every week to try and answer the big question: This group sounds like a cult, but is it really? And if so... how bad is it?

  • Join the cult of “sounds like a cult”

    I love learning about cults so I’ve definitely deep dived into all the regulars (heaven’s gate, Jim jones, flds etc etc), but what I love about this is it sheds light onto the icky parts of the zeitgeist we are expected to accept as ok/not-a-cult. The Tony Robbins episode got me, and the MLM one was V V V relatable! I’m in. Just tell me what to do.

  • Phenomenal Listen

    Interesting and funny, but with a sincere understanding of and concern for the people affected. In a crowded field of true crime podcasts, it’s a must-listen.

  • The podcast has potential bit saying they do a deep dive into cultists stuff is not accurate. It's a shallow wade, not even close to a deep dive. I also think the stupid sound effects they use detract from the podcast. This is a podcast that's good for background noise.

  • So fun!

    Only 1 other podcast I spent time listening to it all the way through (mfm) and they recommended this one. It’s so fun and makes you think critical about many topics! Highly recommend.

  • Too political

    They take every opportunity to blast one side of the aisle. The topics do not require they go there, either side.
