Brilliant. Much thanks to you both. And sending intentional shielding from those who might wish either of you harm. ????????????????


loved it!
thank you


The Church or Scientology owns 1312-14 Chestnut Street in Philadelphia. When they bought it in 2000ish it was a vacant building. It is still a vacant/derelict building. This building is a skyscraper type building and it sits on the 3rd busiest intersection for foot traffic in the country.
What are they doing with the building? There aren’t any Scientologists handing out leaflets on the corner. They can easily flip it in todays market and triple their money. Are they secretly performing rituals on the roof? Holding people in cells? I wonder if Ras Ben knows anything?
Thanks for the great show.


Gladly we do not have this kind of sh17 here where i live…
Impressive to realize that, even now a days, ppl is being lured by such BS !


Wish I could play this or any other episode, but no I pay for a sub that I can’t see


Man already went through that email ordeal once I have to do it again??

I was raised in a dysfunctional family with a possible NPD father. Listening to Scientology practices this reminds me of my family dynamics.


I’d love to hear more on the Braunfman (sp?) links between Epstein and NXIVM. Too much of a coincidence for there not to be more to the story.


Scientology?, where in the heck is the science? As far as i know control is not a science ????. If it was they have that down.


Nothing like a shill calling another shill out with such a large rock in a glass house (Mars) . Ha ha . But really the side stepping on intelligence gathering and the refusal to speculate the possibility that Scientology is or could be an intelligence contractor or a mind control experiment for whomever was epic / In my opinion of course.
But aside from those concerns an informative and interesting interview!


[quoting from the discussion] Funny to believe that in America, in the “21st century, there’s this group, that keeps people imprisoned, keeps children from their parents . . .” sounds like, not just Scientology, but what about the corporate “police” state, corporate prison system, and child protective services to me ! Police aren’t constitutionally authorized and are organized under corporations or LLCs, same with the prisons and CPS !


It was quite naive in bits and he was very materialistic lumping all ideas about reincarnation and spitiruality into one laughable whole.


great show!

Brace guys and keep on keeping on. It’s extremely valuable and beautiful thing to do. All the best, JT


Very interesting but very sad that they have taken all the spiritual ideas and twisted and distorted them so much as to make it laughable. So typical but so awful. Thanks Greg x


No mention of the South Park episode? Pretty sure that was the single most damaging moment In the history of Scientology
