Sally recommended her top 5 pieces of nonfiction cult-related media for anyone who is interested in learning more.

On the premiere episode of Oh I Like That, we—friends and lifestyle journalists Rachel Wilkerson Miller (@the_rewm) and Sally Tamarkin (@sallyt)—kick things off by introducing ourselves and our new show.

For our first-ever segment, we talk about something topical: autumn and its glories, including their recommendations for things to eat and do in this the most majestic of seasons. Then we dive into a discussion about a recent post on the Am I The Asshole subreddit, “AITA for getting angry my girlfriend is wasting my power words on her friends?” Finally, we close out the episode with a brief chat about fall care packages and the ritual of putting your winter comforter on the bed.
