Every month, Phalin and Vanessa will bring you their new podcast miniseries “Cultified,” where they address the burning question: wait, is this a cult?! They use a 4-point cult scorecard they invented, they run through a juicy checklist to see whether or not it actually deserves cult status…or if it’s just a movement. Today’s cultish topic of conversation is Flat Earthers.
Then Mariquita shares her review of The Personal Librarian by Marie Benedict and Victoria Christopher Murray, which publishes at the end of June. (Preorder here!) This book tells the story of Belle da Costa Green who was J.P. Morgan’s personal librarian, a Black woman who passed as white at the turn of the century.
