First off, this is more of a cult themed true crime podcast than a podcast about cults. New religious movements are the motif, but the focus is definitely on the compounding horrors enacted by the cults the presenter chooses as her subject matter. Next to no effort is expended to investigate the strange, potentially interesting, beliefs of the cults; the focus is definitely on the macabre and cruel. Imagine Sword & Scale: Cult Edition. If that sounds good, add a star to my rating.
Second- & this is just me being petty- the name is incredibly deceptive. "Let's Talk About Sects" is a wry joke, but that's about where the humor and creativity end. The average Sects episode is a dry recitation of crimes, organized into a timeline. Well researched, yes, but stuffy and completely without charm.
