We take a tour of the people who are being prosecuted for their activities, despite the fact that scientology claims they are the most ethical group on earth.

    Hi guys,

    This isn’t related to this episode, Im going back and listening to some old episodes I missed.

    In Listeners Questions Part 3, it was really weird for me to hear you keep saying “wog” over and over.

    Not sure if you know, and Id be curious to know if Hubbard or whoever coined the term knew, that in the UK “wog” is racism term for a dark skinned person. Its the shortened version of “golliwog”. Golliwogs were little black-face dolls from the 1800s that survived until well into the 1980s.

    A religion calling non-converts wogs is the similar to a religion calling non-converts the N word.

    From this morning’s news. Isn’t this the company talked about during yesterday’s podcast? BTW, I love your podcast!

    Judge permanently blocks marketing of bottled-water brand
    A U.S. judge has permanently blocked a Las Vegas-based bottled-water brand Real Water from being marketed while an investigation continues into at least one death and multiple cases of liver illness among people who reported drinking it.
    A court order signed Monday by U.S. District Judge Jennifer Dorsey formalizes a settlement in which AffinityLivestyles.com Inc., Real Water Inc. and company officers agreed to stop processing and distributing the product drawn from municipal tap water, and destroy any in their possession.
    Company president Brent Jones, a former Nevada state Republican lawmaker, and attorneys for him and the company didn’t immediately respond to messages seeking comment.
    Real Water was marketed primarily in Nevada, Arizona, Utah and California.
    The Justice Department said Tuesday that defendants including Jones assured the court they no longer prepare or distribute the water that was sold as premium alkalized drinking water in distinctive boxy blue bottles touting “E2 Electron Energized Technology.” Labels said it was “infused with negative ions” and offers healthy detoxifying properties.
    That agreement also required the company to turn over to the Food and Drug Administration records about processing, bottling and distribution; and to submit to unannounced inspections of company facilities in Las Vegas, suburban Henderson and Mesa, Arizona.

    Leah, I love hearing you speak about the issue of Scientology. Your passion to expose this cult has helped so many. But I have to say that today, I was a but uncomfortable listening to how you spoke to your guest. He deserved an apology for sure 🤷🏻‍♀️

  • Mike Atwell says:

    Love, Love, LOVE this show and what you guys are doing. So informative, so passionate. It’s rare to see this level of fierce, directed activism at something so demonstrably destructive. Not to mention, I could listen to Mike and Leah’s banter and war stories for hours on end. You guys are awesome. Please keep it up!

  • Ashtynn Braden says:

    Hey guys, love the podcast. I religiously listen on my way home from work! I’m cussing right along with you, Leah! Could you guys (if you’re not already) work on a Qanon episode?

  • Jackie says:
