Leah Remini shared exciting news for fans of the television series Scientology and the Aftermath, which ran for three seasons on A&E. The actress and advocate revealed in a new Instagram post that she and her series co-host Mike Rinder have launched a podcast titled Scientology: Fair Game.
Leah revealed in the caption that the podcast, which airs new episodes each Tuesday, will reveal even more about the history and practice of the controversial religion's policy. The slide uploaded to Instagram depicted a graphic for the show, which launches today. Episodes are recorded one week before airing to give listeners the most updated information.
The first episode is titled "When Scientology Declares You Fair Game." The episode notes for the podcast reveal that the hosts will detail the history, policy, and consequences of the controversial practice, reportedly implemented to intimidate anyone perceived as going against the church.
Tony Ortega, the author of the website The Underground Bunker, detailed just what this method constitutes within the organization. He stated that Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard came up with the "Fair Game Law" in 1965 as a way to stop splinter groups of the religion. According to Ortega, it was not until 1967 that Hubbard defined the practice as a way to fight the religion's enemies.
