Jon Atack is back with another conversation with his old nemesis, former Scientology spokesman Mike Rinder.

Says Jon: "Special guest Mike Rinder kicks off this video with a discussion of Hubbard's skills as a storyteller: the 'Source' was a master of spinning yarns, entirely unfettered by such minor considerations as facts, accuracy, or consistency. No matter the subject, Hubbard claimed expertise – from racing cars on distant planets, to the nature of how light works. Hubbard passed on the certainty in his stories to his followers, aided by their belief in the e-meter: 'If it reads on the E-meter, it must be true!' Jon and Mike then move on to considering the myth of the 'reactive mind' and how this belief is used to rope in followers, making them pay to exorcise their 'demons' – demons created by master storyteller Hubbard."
