Summary

Set on a large ranch in rural upstate New York, it’s early days for the eccentric group of people who call themselves “The Zeta Family” - quite possibly the next big cult phenomenon. 

Katie (Amy Goodmurphy), our central protagonist, is an aspiring reporter who has decided to infiltrate the compound, and her future success as a journalist depends entirely on her ability to win the confidence of Zeta Doug (Kevin Nealon), the likable spiritual leader of the group. 

He’s like a cross between Hunter S. Thompson and George R. R. Martin, with a little too much sci-fi in his head and acid in his blood stream. Like all good cult leaders, Doug is elusive and mysterious, and Katie quickly begins to wonder if this cult is truly just a gnarly collection of weirdos hanging out in the woods, or is there something else going on here?

Laugh non stop

I really didn't know what to expect but it brought me joy listening to the characters.
I bursted out laughing at some points in the book... Probably people thought something was wrong with me.
I loved it I wish it was longer.

the characters were interesting. the plot a little predictable. but it was a well crafted story.

I really enjoyed it.

absolutely brilliant, funny and heartwarming

I pretty much went through all the episodes in one day...snickering while working at my desk in the office. And then I was so touched and emotional that I was getting all teary, my colleagues probably thought I was unhinged!

Excellent & light-hearted

I really enjoyed this. It started with a slightly spooky vibe and then morphed into a Louis Sachar type of kookiness. Exactly the light-hearted but gripping kind of story I was looking for!

Great!

Loved it! The story started as kind of goofy, got really weird later and made me tear up in the end. Thank you to everyone who worked on this podcast!
