This Isn't Just a Cult: A Work of Real Fiction

This Isn't Just a Cult: A Work of Real Fiction

A part-time cabal. A fusion of assemblage art, hurly-burly, bedlam, disquiet and poetry. Indie music, art, writing and treasure. A podcast of Real Fiction featuring music from the This Isn't Just a Cult constellation of artists and stories of regret, elation, mysticism, headaches, heartaches, harpoons and merit badges. Perfect for every situation. Except four. This Isn't Just a Cult is an art collective with a focus on collaboration and creativity. It is often absurd. It can be a comedy or a parody. It is often abstract. It is poetry and fiction. It is the bubbles of a creative community.... Show More

Chris Campbell [a.k.a. The Creeping Man] created this sound collage for you the listener to ponder. He hopes it will spark that existential conversation you have been postponing with a loved one. Also, it is meant to inspire you to aspire. To reach for the stars. To swing for the fences. To boil the ocean. To bounce like a Muppet. To never Leggo the Eggo.

Part 6 of The Long Lightning by Erik Blagsvedt as narrated by Yall Yall

Many listeners have contacted us about this series and asked why? Good question. Well, simply put, it's because we think about thorns. The odd bequest of a fuchsia bender to sequin a soliloquy songbird to frisk our winch and our growing branching passwords in a beret of failure that protrudes a solitary wildcat. 

We would like to thank Yall Yall for his w...

Climate Crisis

Genocide

War

The Rise of Nationalism

Björ6n Oranj has been pondering the state of the world as the result of listening to too many podcasts. It has left him cynical. But, recently, there has been some hope. Resistance. Leadership. The Grays have become a world-wide phenomenon. They are fighting back against apathy. They have become an inspiration to millions. Maybe 2020 is the year everything changes.

Lies. Misconceptions. Exaggerations. The Creeping Man has some problems with some fabrications allegedly proclaimed by Björ6n Oranj. The Creeping Man refutes and takes the witness stand to tell his side of the story. You'll notice his hand was not on the Bible.

Along the way, while telling his tale, The Creeping Man weaves in some historical reference material.

The continuation of The Long Lightning by Erik Blagsvedt as read by M0ssy Tr0n. Abstract poetry read out loud because the main intensifier is electric gunsmith.

The Piketon Massacre
The Piketon Massacre
On the night of April 21, 2016 in rural Piketon, Ohio - eight members of the Rhoden family were viciously murdered execution style in their homes. Two years later in 2018, their neighbors, the Wagners, were arrested and charged with committing the largest massacre in Ohio’s history. Shocked by the arrests, this once close-knit and religious community remains divided and unable to cope. Was a respected and reputable Piketon family responsible for this unimaginable murder spree? Our team will examine the deep ties that connected both families. We’ll examine the evidence and possible motives for the crimes. For the first time we’ll speak with townspeople, psychological experts, respected investigators, friends and members of both families. Are the Wagners responsible for the murders, and if convicted, will they be executed? Or is it possible that there is still a murderer at large waiting to kill again?
