37: SECT OR CULT? Raëlism, the Bruderhof, aliens, plagarism, tough titties and more!

RELIGIOUS SECTS OR CULT? Raëlism, the Bruderhof, aliens, plagarism and more!

Well hello, Eavesdroppers! This week’s episode goes from boring to bizarre as we look at two weird and whacky religious sects (just don’t call them cults, like Michelle does the whole way through…).

First up? In an effort to find a lighthearted cult where not everyone dies at the end, Michelle talks about The Bruderhof! In this episode she talks about… What they are… Who they are… How they got started… How they’re kind of boring… yawn. Don’t get us wrong, it IS interesting – in the way the Amish are interesting – and all in all they’re a neat little sect where, so far, no body dies. But hang one cotton-pickin’ minute because Geordie has a sect for you that will knock your little silver alien socks off. Yes, she’s scraped the surface of what it is to be RAËLIAN!!! (Almost sounds like alien, right?!)

So… What is Raëlianism? How did it start? Is the leader for real? How did aliens end up in the mix? Did the ex-racing car journalist really nick the whole religion from some obscure sci-fi writers? Is it weirder than Scientology? Are we going to have self-animated fur mops? Is there actually something in Raëlianism that makes sense?  YOU DECIDE!

*Disclaimer: We don’t claim to have any factual info about anything ever and for anyone who’s Bruderhof or Raëlian, soooooorrrrrryyyyyyyy J

Click now to get Eavesdroppin’ and hear how the pair think Russel Brand is going to be the next new GURU, how Michelle had a period leak on a date when she was a teenager, hear the pair wonder why big arses are in, the story of a woman with flipping butt implants and to hear Geordie say Tough Titties ?!
