Mareka Brousseau on the degradations of Scientology’s Sea Org life

JeffMarekaJeffrey Augustine is back with another podcast, this time his second interview with Mareka Brousseau.

Mareka, the daughter of Haydn and Lucy James, gives us more glimpses of the hardships of Sea Org life in Scientology. Her eyewitness testimony is hard-hitting, as usual.

We were interested also to see that she describes the independent Scientology movement as a kind of “halfway house” for people leaving Scientology entirely — hey, we’ve used that same analogy ourselves.

And we think you’re going to enjoy her description of David Miscavige. We’ll let you find out what that is. Please give the podcast a listen and give us your observations!
