Your buddies Ross Blocher and Carrie Poppy are getting a lot of attention for their insanely unnerving Scientology investigation, out now. If you haven't been keeping up with Oh No, Ross and Carrie, you're missing possibly their biggest exposé ever, wherein they spent over 90 cumulative hours taking classes, being audited, and generally immersing themselves in the world of Scientology.

The duo is on episode two of this multi-parter, which they expect to be at least five glorious episodes.

Check out what some of dem big media outlets have had to say about our brave and/or criminally insane pals:

"It's a great place to jump into Ross and Carrie's deep, long-running corpus of investigative work." - Boing Boing

"Blocher shines explaining the surreal Scientology texts with their pedantic, David Foster Wallace-style footnotes defining simple things like 'dispensable' and 'take a walk' to replace them with buzzwords from L. Ron Hubbard... The one message Blocher and Poppy always take pains to impart is the overwhelming sincerity of their subjects, and Scientology might be chief among them." - The Onion's A.V. Club

Judge John Hodgman Episode 203: Habeas Spiritus

Guests: 
Carrie Poppy

Rachael brings the case against her boyfriend Anton. Rachael believes that psychics with real spiritual gifts do exist, and wants Anton to visit one with her. Anton is "an unshakeable realist" and says all psychics are faking it, and are just in it for the cash.

Should Anton give psychics a chance? Only one man can decide (with the assistance of expert witness Carrie PoppyTfor!)

This week's episode title suggested by Aurora Hannigan! Thank you!
