    Re: Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath on A&E

    If anyone is interested in more personal accounts, I'm reading Jenna Miscavige Hill's book Beyond Belief: My Secret Life Inside Scientology and My Harrowing Escape. Her father is David Miscavige's brother. I'm only a small portion of the way through the book (maybe 10% as I'm reading it on my Kindle) and there are already lots of familiar names, including Mike Rinder who, along with his wife and kids, shared an apartment with Jenna and her brother and parents....until the parents basically abandoned the kids with a glorified nanny while they went off to work for the Sea Org. Messed up stuff, but really interesting, especially considering that she's sort of from the current "first family" of Scientology.

    Anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that 'my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.' - Isaac Asimov

    I was thinking of the immortal words of Socrates, who said, "... I drank what?"

    Yesterday I watched this interview with Mike Rinder https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d-ZuWE_3_34&feature=youtu.be Toward the end he is asked about season 3. His answer was, it is not a signed deal yet, but will most likely occur. He also said the JWs would have a shwe but not in the format of Aftermath. Not sure what he meant by that.

    If you think there is way too much time before season 3 of The Aftermath you will enjoy this hour long podcast. It is an interview of Leah Remini by Chris Shelton, a former Scientologist and anti-Sci activist. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zqbxvw1tvWA
