TGA Podcast: Episode 310

This week, Ryan joins me for a very special 2 part episode about Scientology. First up, we discuss the early history of the church, some of its scandals, and the way it operates. We also discuss what the different elements of a cult are, and I try to break Scientology down with it. Don’t miss this one!

    Have you done a podcast on mormonism? There is some crazy ish that brigam young said that the LDS church no longer believes. You think sicentology is crazy, read about “Adam/god” it might make you head hurt though http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adam%E2%80%93God_doctrine

    again mainstream mormons do not believe this, and most don’t even know that Young preached it.

    I really liked this podcast. I miss your product.
    I also think it would be interesting if you covered mormonism.
    Thanks for putting out good stuff.

    Thanks, Zane. You know, I’m trying to get back into podcasting shape, so don’t worry: more shows are coming. As for my product, you do know I worked like a maniac on The Essentials, right? Trust me when I say you don’t remember most of these shows, and they’ve been pared down to their raw essence. Sure, it’s 15 bucks, but I think when you own it, you’ll feel there’s enough quality there to justify it!

    Okay, I’m sure you did a good job on it. I didn’t consider buying it because I guess like you said I figured I probably heard it but yeah I didn’t really stop to consider the careful work you must have put into it. Is it entire podcasts or bits and pieces of podcasts?

    It’s 25 of the best podcasts that i edited and remastered, added a few snippets here and there, and recorded one extra show in french with my dad. Plus it has a booklet with the remastered comics, write-ups, artwork, everything to make cool bootleg copies that you can give to your friends. So, in that sense, it is for fans!

    Yeah, I just noticed your artwork on the demo there. That’s pretty cool. Are you signing any copies?

    Just a suggestion.. the signing of copies. I know I would appreciate that so I’m sure other people would too. And you’re right atheist are cheap. I am across the board. Though I do try to spend what money I do spend in the right places. But it would be an interesting study to see if atheist tend to be more frugal in general.
    But I do listen to you for free all the time and it has enriched my life and I should have been more up on this cd thing.

    The signed copies will only be available to “the 300″, since they cost a lot to produce and to ship. They will also come with their member cards in them. This is one of the incentives for being a member. Everyone else gets an electronic version with good quality bootleg artwork (not as nice as the ones the members get), and even an extra show and one extra comic. But that will be announced shortly.

    A show about Mormon masturbation. Apparently, their young men masturbate so much, they have flyers and videos warning about the practice. Also, it seems that the young ladies do not masturbate. This is a fascinating religion just from their unique masturbatory practices.
