This episode is advice-giving at its best. It’s all about parenting and how to do it. And the fact that neither Claire nor Wendy have kids means that you’re getting pure, unadulterated (emphasis on the “unadult”), not at all obnoxious, grade-A advice.
If death has been a concern, this episode is for you. In this episode of Inside the Box, Claire and Wendy get serious about strategies to stay alive, addressing everyday concerns like what to do when confronted by a wild animal or a threatening leprechaun; what items you should have in your post-apocalyptic bunker; and how to skip death altogether and become immortal. It doesn't get any better than this. True advice. Right here. Right now.
Two things in life are certain: Death and Assholes. Claire and Wendy will be addressing death (specifically, how to avoid it) in their next episode, but in this episode – it’s all about assholes. They identify common types of assholes, as well as effective and some might say immature (the people who would say that are assholes) ways to handle them.
So, this was an experience. In part 2 of “How to Start a Cult,” Claire and Wendy had the great pleasure (?) of meeting and interviewing bona fide cult leader, Tiresa of the Guardians of the Parthenon. Fasten your seatbelts.
Claire and Wendy take the concept of "gaining followers" to a whole new level in this episode. Like master hypnotists, they spell out what it takes to be a successful cult leader and how to indoctrinate potential followers with a snazzy transcendent (wink, wink!) belief system. You'll also learn how easy it is to develop systems of control to "keep things running smoothly" and "get important shit done" (i.e., your laundry, etc.).
