This is a fun one.

First, we catch up with TR correspondents Liz Ohanesian and Eric Diaz at RuPaul’s DragCon, to get their take on the crossplay convention.

Next, we catch up with Tony Ortega, a veteran journalist and author of the new book The Unbreakable Miss Lovely: How the Church of Scientology tried to destroy Paulette Cooper, as he gives us a crash course in the history of L. Ron Hubbard’s controversial sci-fi religion and its policies.

It’s quite the wild ride, this podcast. Buckle up.

About Author

Luke Y. Thompson has been writing professionally about movies and pop-culture since 1999, and has also been an actor in some extremely cheap culty and horror movies you will probably never hear much about (he is nonetheless mostly proud of them, as he met his wife on one). As editor of The Robot's Voice since 2012, he can take the blame for the majority of the site's content, all of which he creates because he loves you very, very much. (Although he loves nachos more. Sorry.) Prior to TRV, Luke wrote for publications that include the New Times LA, Los Angeles CityBeat, E! Online, OC Weekly, Geekweek, GeekChicDaily, The L.A. Times, The Village Voice, LA Weekly, and Nerdist
