The Rise & Fall of Twin Hills is gripping five-part mockumentary investigating a scandal involving the podcast’s fictional pastor.  It masterfully combines elements of self-seriousness and sharp satire to present a story that is both absurd and believable, touching upon themes of power, popularity, secrets, sex, money, and even the temptation of delectable Chic-fil-A chicken nuggets. This is Part 1: Of Milk & Miracles - When a struggling food blogger comes to review the Chick-Fil-A at a local mega church, he stumbles on scandals involving its lead pastor Steve Judson.Listen to all 5 parts at www.megathepodcast.com or check out Mega on Apple Podcast, Spotify, and wherever you listen to podcasts. More about Mega:Mega is a completely improvised podcast satirizing the world of a fictional mega church.
