Putting the “cult” in culture…

Do you think SoulCycle is a cult? What about the Royal Family? What about Disney Adults? Or spiritual influencers? Is Instagram itself a cult? Sounds Like A Cult is a podcast that analyzes a different fanatical group every week to try and answer the big question: This sounds like a cult, but is it really? Inspired by Amanda’s book Cultish: The Language of Fanaticism, Sounds Like A Cult premiered in June of 2021 and was named a best podcast of 2022 by Vulture, Esquire, Wired, Marie Claire, and others. Regularly charting among Spotify’s Top 50 Comedy Podcasts, the show won the 2023 iHeart Radio “Best Emerging Podcast” Award and has earned praised by The New York Times among other publications.

Sounds Like A Cult is an independent podcast airing every Tuesday on all major platforms.
