Underground Bunker TV – Videos that explain Scientology’s controversies


Hey, if David Miscavige can have a DirecTV channel that shows the same dozen programs over and over 24 hours a day, the least we can do is throw him a little competition. And mercifully, we’re keeping our videos very short — two minutes or less whenever possible.

We’re choosing particular issues in Scientology that we’ve covered here before, and presenting them in a way that we hope will draw people back here to the Bunker to seek more information.
