    Ex-Scientologist - Doug Scott Kramer

    Doug Kramer was forced into the cult of scientology at nine years old when his father decided it would be a good idea for the family. Today he talks to me about the way that scientology and other cults like it manipulate people into signing up.

Love these pods!

Came across Andrew’s podcast entirely by accident and now I’m obsessed! His interviews keep me company on the daily and I love his style and the stimulating conversations he has and questions he raises. Thanks for making these! I’m terribly sorry because I’m so, so long overdue a review — if you read this, though, I do tell anyone who has ears about your podcast and I’ve loved every single one. Can’t wait to see you make it to the top!

Best podcast ever!

There is nothing that I like more than waking up listening to you! Keep up the amazing work! And don’t let the haters bring you down.

Quality podcast

This has quickly become my favourite podcast. Fascinating interviews and I love the ‘curiosity over judgement’ vibe.
