New Zealand Radio Show
I had the great good fortune to share the airwaves with Aaron Saxton in a live radio broadcast from New Zealand. It airs Sundays at 10pm down there but here it was 1 a.m. as the show went out live.
Even wacky on the cold meds, I managed to make some sense of Scientology’s mythology and practices. At least more sense than the actual Scientology spokesperson who was the first to appear on the show, Mike Ferris. I have to hand it to Mike, though. I predicted he never would stick around to face questions from us but he did. Here’s Mike’s segment:
Next Aaron came on to tell some of his story before I was asked to join in.
In part three, we had a respectful free-for-all with all three of us.
It was a lot of fun and I was very impressed with host Pat Brittenden who did a great job of asking tough but polite questions. He did what too few hosts do. he actually played clips of Hubbard talking about Xenu in his own voice. During the first segment, while Mike was talking about Christ, I emailed the audio clip of Hubbard saying there was no Christ to the show but the hour flew by so fast there was no time to use it. But I did manage to organically slip in a plug for Blown for Good by Marc Headley.
