Craving more true crime? Tune into iHeartPodcast’s “Queen Havoc and Her Murder Cult” to uncover the story of Cecilia Steyn who has been dubbed the “Charles Manson of South Africa” and helmed the “satanic” cult named Electus Per Deus. Hosted by filmmaker Kurt Kubicek, the series follows Kurt’s travels to a small mining town in South Africa that was rocked by the brutal murders. Kurt unpacks the twisted story and shares new information with exclusive interviews with the lead detectives and journalists that covered the case. Are the murderers still operating the cult from prison? Tune in every Tuesday to find out.

For the true-crime lovers, check out “Sacred Scandal” which was named one of Podtrac’s Best New Podcasts of 2022. In its second season, the series focuses on Mexico-based megachurch La Luz del Mundo (Light of the World) and Naasón Joaquín García, a self-proclaimed apostle, who is currently behind bars after being convicted of sexually abusing girls from his congregation. He is currently serving a nearly 17-year sentence, but maintains his innocence. Host and investigative journalist Roberta Garza explores Naasón's control over a multitude of devotees, some of whom now describe their experiences in the church as "pure evil." In this true-crime series, survivors share stories about this powerful religious leader and the alleged sexual abuse that followed, many relating to minors.
