I can't remember what grocery store magazine it was but the front page showed some of the famous people captive of Scientology. I'll have to get back to this to name it correctly but it's really just a matter of time before it crumbles to the ground. Ask the prisoners this, why in the world are people like us so worried? Because if you don't get out now they will tell you to drink the tainted Kool aid or take up arms to defend yourself. You don't want to be in those positions or any like that. Your putting others in danger staying in.

I love this podcast! My only request would be for Mike & Leah to discuss the guest and what they found interesting about it after the guest part is done.

Scientology is just basically "snake oil" salesmen.

FFSSSSSS, Leah. Let 👏🏻 Mike 👏🏻 taaaalk! Please, sweetie. I have loved you since the 80s/90s...was thrilled any time I saw you on TV. I also almost joined Scientology when I was about 13 (early 80s), but - thankfully - my mother saw me about to purchase Dianetics and lost her MIIIIIND and filled me in regarding what it was *truly* about. Anyway, please know that I am a huge fan and find you to be such a great inspiration. What you and Mike are doing is fantastic. Literally the only thing I have a problem with is the constant interruptions. It's rude and kills the flow of the story being told. I know that's not your intention; you have such a big heart and clearly love Mike. Soooo... Please... Just... Let him talk. 😉😍

Did you see the video of JohnTravolta dancing with his daughter? She looks very uncomfortable.

Leah and Mike, You are both Amazing for doing all of this. I am not or ever will be involved with this cult. They are horrible for treating you both and anyone else who speaks up, the way they do. I have you both in my heart, love, thoughts and prayers. Keep up the fight. ♥️😘

Leah! You're a gem! Thank you to you and Mike at the very least for continuing to entertain me, and also for all the hard work all of you do to expose Scientology and protecting victims and family members of Scientology

My skin is just crawling right now. Just thinking this has been going on for decades all hidden behind the guise of religion. I almost feel as if they have the power to track listeners of this podcast. It's chilling. I'm glad I don't have a dog. I wish they'd teach this in high school. It's so insidious it's something for kids to watch out for. If and when they are toppled and your bored you can always redirect your energies to help stamp out the slow death caused by abusers in general society. I'd be on board to help with that. I've got lots of experience as a survivor myself.

I once belonged to a cult, but the crap I endured when I left that church is miniscule compared to what Scientology does to former members. Y'all are my heroes. Keep up the good fight.

Thanks for continuing the fight. I plan on contacting my representatives. Seems like a "low hanging fruit" situation. I work for an actual church, Scientology isn't one of us.
