I’m a big fan of podcasts and one of my very favorites is Oh No Ross and Carrie.
If you’re unfamiliar, they describe the show like so: “Oh No, Ross and Carrie!, the show where we don’t just report on spirituality, fringe science and the paranormal (from a scientific, evidence-based standpoint), but dive right in by joining religions, attending spiritual events, undergoing “alternative” treatments, partaking in paranormal investigations, and more. At Oh No, Ross and Carrie!, we show up, so you don’t have to.”
They usually do one episode per investigation, sometimes two if it’s more in-depth. But for their investigation into the Church of Scientology, they really went the distance and did NINE EPISODES.
Like a lot of people, I didn’t know much about Scientology until watching the documentary Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief. It happened to be playing on HBO while Colby and I were honeymooning in a cottage. (We really know how to do romance right.) If you haven’t seen Going Clear, I can’t recommend it enough.
The nine-episode Scientology series just wrapped up on Ross and Carrie, the first episode appearing on January 2, 2016 with a simple personality quiz. They took several classes at the LA Scientology HQ and things went from there. If you have any interest in knowing what goes on inside the cultish “Big Blue” building, you can have a listen for free on iTunes and on the website.
