Introducing 'The Cult Awareness Podcast,' recorded at HowdyCon 2019 in Los Angeles - 2019-07-02
One surprising thing we learned about Jerry Minor, when we wrote about him after he appeared on Leah Remini's A&E series, Scientology and the Aftermath, is that he's actually been a regular reader of the Underground Bunker for a long time and had a great familiarity with our Scientology stories.
Jerry appeared in the special episode that began Aftermath's third season: He was one of several ex-Jehovah's Witnesses who gave us a stunning look into how much the two groups have in common. He's also a former Saturday Night Live cast member and has appeared in many other television programs.
Several weeks ago, Jerry approached us with an idea: How about a podcast where we talk about Scientology news, Jehovah's Witnesses, and other subjects? Sounded good to us. We'd be joined by Center for Inquiry-West director James Underdown as our third. Jim and your proprietor go way back — the two of us appeared together in the very first episode of Penn & Teller: Bullshit! in 2003.
