Wild Wild Country Part 1 (Covering Eps. 1 & 2 of the Netflix Series)
Another bonkers cult-doc, you guys!
Attend the tale of Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh, a guru who rose to prominence in India in the nineteen-seventies, and collapsed into infamy in Oregon the decade after. But actually forget about him because everybody knows this shit is actually allllllllllll about his Lieutenant, er personal secretary, Sheela. In episodes 1 and 2, we watch in…horror? Confusion? as this band of religious lunatics? Chosen people? Weirdos? take over the small town of Antelope, Oregon (population 50) and try to build a community of thousands in the wilderness. Iiiiiiiiiiiiiiit doesn’t go great, you guys.
HEAR PART 2 (COVERING EPISODES 3 & 4 OF THE NETFLIX SERIES)
The lawyer is still crying, The Australian is still boring, Sheela is still not to be messed with.
This episode, which covers episodes 3 & 4 of the Netflix series, is jam-packed with guns, poisonings, voter fraud, enraged homeless people, attempted assassinations, and, of course, THE HOLLYWOOD CROWD. Oh my God, you guys, The. Hollywood. Crowd.
HEAR PART 3 (COVERING EPISODES 5 & 6 OF THE NETFLIX SERIES)
YOU GUYS! It’s our final installment and all our friends are here! Boring Jane! The Lawyer Who Can’t Stop Crying! Bagwan(shhhhhhh)! And SHEELA! Hey Girl!
Basically, everyone goes to jail, The Lawyer really needs to seek psychiatric attention or at the very least hydrate because HE LITERALLY CAN’T STOP CRYING, Lunny Press Relations gets poisoned, Boring Jane abandons her kids, and Sheela has a secret hot tub. This one is bonkers and we sort of can’t stop laughing. You’re welcome.
