Marc Headley reveals the embarrassing technological secrets of Scientology

Marc_Headley_Jeff_AugustineWe have another treat for you today. Jeffrey Augustine has Marc Headley back for his latest podcast, and it’s a good one.

Marc worked at Scientology’s secretive Int Base for 15 years, and got a rare view inside of the technical side of Scientology. He was intimately involved in the production of Scientology’s lectures and videos and e-meters.

He explains to Jeff about how slow Scientology was to embrace new technology, and that into the 1990s the base was manufacturing 50,000 audio cassettes a week, well after the rest of the world had moved on to compact discs.

He also explains how reluctant the Sea Org was to embrace the Internet, and resisted it until around the year 2000. He’s got some great tales. Give it a listen and tell us your favorite revelation…



UPDATE: Marc Headley is appearing tonight on the wireless!
