We finally got a chance to catch up with Lloyd Evans to ask him about his appearance on Leah Remini's special Aftermath episode about Jehovah's Witnesses.

Lloyd was understandably grateful for the opportunity to appear with several other ex-JW activists in a 2-hour show in an Emmy-winning series. But we had to ask, how significant was this program in the history of the subject?

Lloyd: I think many ex-JWs are still trying to process this, but I think the Aftermath Special is the most significant piece of TV journalism ever done on Jehovah's Witnesses. We're just not used to this level of exposure in the movement. Every now and then there will be a news program (like NBC Dateline and BBC Panorama in 2002) but this is the biggest and most comprehensive exposure there has been so far. And thanks to A&E's reach it's being shown in multiple countries. I've even seen a version of our show dubbed into Italian, which is surreal! Leah and Mike have really done us a huge favor. I'm still getting messages about the impact it's having.
