it took me a whole season and 2 episodes to realize this was fiction. Even the weather man defending himself in court which was freaking hilarious. I had already recommend it to everyone though so I'll let them find out on their own.

After the second episode I realized this isn't real, I was in that cult and I didn't know any Ky dude. Awesome podcast tho, I'm in love with Gwen's voice.
