    36: The Tiny Tyrant of Scientology: David Miscavige (ft. Gay Dave)

    While most people associate Scientology with its founder, L Ron Hubbard, there's another guy who's ushered the organization into the modern age, refining the scheme to squeeze out the most money from its followers. That man is David Miscavige. We're joined by Gay Dave from Echoplex Media to discuss Miscavige's rise to power. (Also, what happened to his wife?)

    If you watched daytime talk shows in the 90's and 2000's you know exactly who this is. The queen of the psychic grift, Sylvia Browne. This is not an episode about a sweet old lady, in fact Sylvia might be at the very center of the "If You Catch My Grift" cinematic universe.

Love it!

Super fun and informative! I love Dalton constantly derailing and Austin trying to keep it on track. They are a hilarious duo!

Excellent Hosts

While the topics chosen are always fresh and unique it’s really Austin and Dalton that keep me coming back for more. That and the related music at the end of every episode, bless you guys for expanding my playlists

Helheim99 ,

To much chit-chat

The story is lost in the giggling and talking off topic, i.e. COVID vaccination stories. It’s definitely difficult to follow.
