Ross Blocher and Carrie Poppy wrapped up their podcast series on Scientology with a ninth and final episode, describing how ultimately they were found out as infiltrators and were shooed away from church events. But not before they had managed to take several courses, do some auditor training, and had attended both the New Year's Eve and LRH Birthday events, two of the biggest Scientology happenings of the year.

The two Los Angeles podcasters are associated with the Center for Inquiry, which exists to debunk pseudoscience. In their show, "Oh No, Ross & Carrie," the duo take on magical thinking by experiencing fringe beliefs for themselves. And over the course of their five year podcast, they say that they had constantly been asked, when are you going to take on Scientology?

They began their adventure in Scientology last year, and didn't broadcast their first episode in February until they had been outed and were no longer doing courses. But in this final episode, Ross reveals that even after their shows had begun airing, they were still getting invitations from Scientologists to attend events. And that's how he found himself at the LRH Birthday event in March at the Kodak Theater in Hollywood.
