The Unpopular Culture Podcast

On October 11th, 2016, Unpopular Culture Podcast came into the world with a singular goal- To bring Psychology and Social Perspective into a world constantly spewing misinformation. The rabbit hole of human existence is vast, and this podcast strives to explore the seedy underbelly of society. We are constantly discovering the weird ...... and the weirdly common. Drawing on the awesome forces of psychology, sociology, and forensics- we explore true crime stories of serial killers, psychopaths, bizarre social phenomenon, and cult behavior—we aim to find a solution.
