    Aaron Smith-Levin: Life in the Scientology Matrix. Why Clears Are in Danger & Other Inside Secrets

    Aaron Smith-Levin: Life in the Scientology Matrix. Why Clears Are in Danger & Other Inside Secrets

    This podcast is about the often arbitrary ways in which the Church of Scientology works in real life as opposed to its PR. For example, after spending $50,000, or more, to reach the State of Clear, the new Clear is given a secret letter from L. Ron Hubbard telling them that they are in danger and get onto the OT levels as fast as possible or else! But how can this be if a Clear no longer has his or her Reactive Mind? A Clear is supposed to be at "Cause Over Life" and able to handle anything. However, they are told they in some kind of danger and won't discover why until they do OT III Jeffrey Augustine asks Aaron why it can take up to 20 years to move from Clear to OT in Scientology. This is a great question. Aaron explains why this happens to former Sea Org members who are treated like pariahs and lepers. Aaron discusses how David Miscavige used the Golden Age of Tech I and II in an ideological manner to purge older Scientologists who were loyal to Hubbard and not Miscavige. Aaron also offers fascinating insights into young 2nd generation Scientologists who attested that they were past life clears as early as 12 years of age. Aaron's insights into this and the consequences it caused inside of Scientology are extremely fascinating.

    Guy White -- Part 2

    Guy White -- Part 2

    Guy White opens by discussing how he and his wife Suzette spent Christmas days, birthdays, and other holidays at Mary Sue Hubbard's home with their three children. Guy White next describes how Suzette Hubbard fled the Sea Org and took their infant son with her. The Church of Scientology tried to convince Guy to divorce Suzette and remain in the Sea Org. Guy wanted his son to be with him. However, the Church feared that any custody battle could become a public legal matter and involve Mary Sue Hubbard as Suzette was living with her mother. Guy soon left the Sea Org and he and Suzette worked to reestablish their lives outside of the Sea Org. Guy disabuses the notion that L. Ron and Mary Sue's children had plenty of money due to their father's wealth. Indeed, L. Ron Hubbard left very little to his children by Mary Sue. Guy reveals the exact amount. Guy talks about his going to work for the Scientologist-owned Dohring Company as his first job after he left the Sea Org.

Love the interviews

Very good interviews and great insight into this crazy cult. I would ask that you let the guests speak more and you speak less. Sometimes you monopolize the conversation. Other than that I love your show!
