Jefferson Hawkins on how Scientology closes minds — a new podcast

Jefferson_Hawkins_ObeyAfter we posted yesterday’s story about how Mike Rinder and I had learned that we had each been victimized by the same private investigator, Eric Saldarriaga, I received an invitation form the US Attorney’s Office to speak at Saldarriaga’s sentencing today.

I decided to take it. The sentencing happens at 2 pm, and we are looking forward to it. But we’re also trying to prepare for this weekend’s book tour stop in Clearwater, Florida, so it’s going to be a busy day.

In the meantime, we hope you’ll enjoy this new podcast from Jeffrey Augustine, talking to one of our favorite former Church of Scientology executives, Jefferson Hawkins. Give it a listen and let us know what you find most interesting. In the afternoon, we’ll try to add some eyewitness testimony from today’s festivities in court.
