Beyond the Trailer Park Ep. 79: Ex-Scientologist Pete Griffiths
This week we are joined by ex-Scientologist Pete Griffiths. All the way from Ireland, "Griffiths ran a mission in Cumbria, in northern England, until his weekly figures petered out. By the time he moved to Westport, in 1998, he planned to return to Scientology once his children were grown and he could better afford it. It wasn’t until he heard of a protest in 2008 that he looked into Scientology online and had a “penny-dropping moment”.  “From 1987 to 2008 the thought control was all in place,” he says. “Then a lengthy unravelling process began. I got so angry that I burned any Scientology stuff I had lying around in a bonfire. I couldn’t look at it any more. The sense of betrayal is just incredible. The clues are all there, but you don’t see them.”" Pete is now an anti-Scientology protester and YouTuber, offering support to former Scientologists and information about it's many flaws and issues to current members through protests.

Sensibly Speaking Podcast #51 - A New Explanation of L. Ron Hubbard
One of the biggest questions about Scientology is what were the intentions of its founder, L. Ron Hubbard in creating it and if it's a great big con, why would he have stuck with it for decades and written and done as much as he did. In this episode, guest Yuval Laor and I discuss a theory that could answer these questions and explain L. Ron Hubbard in a way that has never been talked about before.
