I was joined by Neil McRobert of the Talking Scared Podcast and we went over some books for the much-requested Cult Horror subgenre! I have very weird feelings about stories about cults, since I have mentioned before, I grew up in what could be described as an evangelical cult. This was a great selection of books, and one book in particular really spoke to me and my experiences. I mean, obviously without the elements of cosmic horror and more on the dealing with the aftermath of having a cult experience in childhood.
