Episode #206 – Mark Bunker
We are less than a week away from the Mothman Festival, but things are still screwed up here in the studio…we have a blackout! Bobby talks about an argument he had about atheists celebrating Christmas. And finally, Orbdog is at it again, this time battling with our pal and co-founder of The Bent Spoon, Nick Callis. Orbdog calls himself a “seer of objects,” and Callis tells him he should become a “seer of psychologists.” Hilarity.
We then spoke to Emmy winning investigative journalist Mark Bunker about Scientology. Who was L. Ron Hubbard and what exactly does it mean to be a Scientologist? What is an SP? A thetan? And what in the hell is Xenu? All this and more, including Scientology’s harmful practices of mind control and why Scientology continues to be in the news are covered in this engaging but unfortunately all-too-short discussion.
