Scientology: Fair Game - A New Podcast From Leah Remini and Mike Rinder

I love a good podcast for long days in the sun. And this came at just the right time. I have read 5 books in the last two weeks. My eyes need a rest! While searching for a good podcast, I stumbled upon this. I am very picky about my podcasts. I like True Crime and I like it sounding professional, very well researched and quality guests. This podcast checked all the boxes. In fact, I listened to the first episode TWICE so far. If you watched Leah Remini and Mike Render's show on A & E, Scientology and the aftermath , you are ahead of the game. If you haven't seen it, it is a MUST as I have said in the past . Listening to the podcast alone is not enough. So if you have not seen the show or you're diving deep here like myself, the show is streaming on Hulu . This Podcast digs a bit deeper. It's like the companion book. You need both! What is Fair Game? A term used to describe the taking care of "Threats and enemies" of Scientology. Mike Render e

View this post on Instagram Mornings are the hardest. I forget you’re gone. I can’t cry because of the fear that I will never stop. A pain that’s new to me. You. There are no words for you. Angel is the closest I could think of. Pure light. Baby brother. Best friend. Wild man. Intellectual. Witness to my life. Twin soul. Protector. Too sensitive for this harsh world. I hope you give me strength to endure the giant hole you’ve left in my heart. I hope you give me the strength to eat. I hope you’re cradled in love. I hope you feel my love. I hope you feel god. You are god. I can’t believe you’ve left me. Not you sweet Ben Ben. Anyone but you. I guess this is true heartbreak. I hope we meet again.

It's a lot of pressure. It's almost like you're pressured into having to be a musician, having to be an actor. It was good for him to go around the world and discover himself and have his own friends. You never know what triggers it. You never know ... It's so random." Keough was a
