Last Show Recap

Inside Scientology

Fifty miles off the coast of Nantucket, 250 feet beneath the Atlantic, lies the RMS Republic and her secret treasure. As soon as Republic sank, rumors spread of a precious cargo, but the ship has kept her secrets intact for over a century, until now. Life-long treasure hunter Martin Bayerle joined Connie Willis (email) for all four hours to discuss how he has devoted the past 35 years of his life researching the shipwreck and proving the existence of her reputed cargo of 150,000 American Eagle gold coins, a bounty worth a billion dollars in today’s economy, and his quest to recover the it on his second attempt at the Republic.

Inside Scientology

Show Archive
Date: Saturday - February 23, 2013
Host: John B. Wells
Guests: Jenna Miscavige Hill , Wayne Madsen

Jenna Miscavige Hill, niece of Church of Scientology leader David Miscavige, was raised as a Scientologist but left the controversial religion in 2005. She joined John B. Wells to share her true story of life inside the upper ranks of the sect and her ultimate escape from it. Hill's parents were members of the Sea Organization, a secretive military-style order whose members sign billion-year contracts dedicating their lives to the church. Children of executives in the church were known as cadets and sent to special boarding school called The Ranch, she explained. Hill described her time there which included daily inspections, recitation of L. Ron Hubbard's writings, and 25 hours a week of manual labor. There was an atmosphere of paranoia as children were encouraged to report on each other, she said, adding that any misbehavior was punishable by a written demerit and sometimes having one's head dunked in ice water.

From the ages of six to twelve I was allowed to see my parents only once a week and from twelve to eighteen I only say my mother two times, Hill continued. She detailed the arduous process of leaving the organization, which can include weeks to months of mandatory "confessional" interrogations hooked to an E-meter (similar to a lie detector). "Every Scientology counselor is trained in physically restraining their subject if they try to leave the room," she noted. Soon-to-be ex-members must sign non-disclosure bonds subjecting them to a $10,000 fine per violation for speaking out against the religion, she disclosed. Hill also revealed how church leaders attempted to keep her fiancé from seeing her and leaving the organization. As we were driving away, the security chief actually threatened to do everything in his power to ensure that my fiancé's family never spoke to him again, she recalled.

Murder of Philip Marshall

In the first hour, investigative journalist Wayne Madsen commented on the mysterious deaths of 9/11 conspiracy author Philip Marshall and his children—a crime that local law enforcement has concluded was a murder-suicide. Madsen stated unequivocally that Marshall and his family were victims of a professional hit. As evidence, he cited the close proximity of Marshall's neighbors, who certainly would have heard any gunshots not muffled by a silencer. Marshall owned a gun but no silencer and, according to friends, no ammo either, Madsen reported. He also pointed out that Marshall, a right-handed man, was found with a fatal gunshot wound to the left side of his head. In addition, a door was unlocked even though Marshall was known to secure his home at night, the crime scene was thoroughly cleaned shortly after the initial investigation, and unusual vehicles were spotted around the house following the crime, Madsen explained. He suggested that Marshall was murdered because of explosive information to be released in an upcoming book.

News segment guest: Vickie White, friend of John B. Wells, talked about her ordeal aboard the crippled Carnival Triumph cruise ship.
