Episode 13! Cats! With Jess Collins

Egyptians really loved cats! Like, they would literally kill you over them!

Medieval Europeans, uh…often felt differently.

In an effort to bring some levity after a string of more “serious” episodes, John decided to investigate the history of the role cats have played in religion. Surely that would be an adorable story! Things got dark quick. Jess Collins (who really likes the movie “Kedi“) makes her second appearance to hear all the delightful cat stories.

New Episode Tomorrow (7/29): TONY ORTEGA talks Scientology

Journalist Tony Ortega has been covering Scientology since 1995. He joins us to talk about the past and future of the Church of Scientology and why 2020 may be a pivotal year in determining its fate.

In 2017, Ortega was the first to report that the LAPD was investigating rape allegations against actor and Scientologist Danny Masterson. He also appeared in Alex Gibney’s breakthrough 2015 HBO documentary Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief.

He is the creator of the website The Underground Bunker, where he continues to cover the Church.

Check back tomorrow to listen to my conversation with him here, the CageClub website, or wherever you get podcasts.
