    "Scientology is the number one thing we are asked to do, constantly."

    It’s a five-part series that took two months from start to finish. They used their real names during the entire process, and it was only much later that the Church discovered who they were:
    “I thought for sure they would look us up us right away,” says Blocher, “but it seems they didn’t catch on until one Sea Org member mentioned my name to a Mormon friend. By sheer coincidence, the friend had listened to our Mormon episode and put two and two together.”

  6. Great podcast! They did a lot of work over multiple weeks. They're doing several parts for their Scientology investigation.

    Out of curiosity, I checked to see how often they put out shows, and it is usually only once a month, at most twice a month :( So we'll have to wait a while before we hear everything they experienced.

    ‘Are you 100 percent American?’ — ‘Ross & Carrie’ investigate joining Scientology

    By Tony Ortega, The Underground Bunker, February 6, 2016

    Excerpt:

    While Ross and Carrie are having fun, they took their Scientology experience seriously and absorbed a lot. Sure, for many of our readers, the things they experienced won’t be new. We are aware of how the personality test works, and the kinds of courses that are pushed on new recruits. But along the way, the couple have some great observations, some of which confirm what a precarious state Scientology is in these days. At one point, Ross says, he was asked by a curious staff member, are you 100 percent American? As opposed to what, he wonders, and the two don’t quite seem to realize what that reflects — that today, most Scientology recruiting happens outside the United States.

    And there’s all the pushiness you expect from staff members trying to make their weekly stats. It all feels pretty familiar. But Ross and Carrie hint in this initial episode that they got some considerable way into the Bridge, which we have to admit intrigues us. The two say that they did some auditor training, and Carrie says she went to the New Year’s Eve party, which we’ll hear about in upcoming episodes. We’re looking forward to it.

    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:

    Ross and Carrie Audit Scientology (Part 3): Create-Create-Create

    It's the next leg in our bizarre and amazing Scientology journey. Ross moves on to Scientology's "advanced" personal efficiency course, and finds it anything but efficient. As the only student in the entire class, he gets the chance to ask a lot of good questions, and get a lot of strange answers. Meanwhile, Carrie listens along with you and marks every inefficient teaching with a slide whistle. Plus, we learn that the Scientologists already lied to Ross about one of their teachings. Check it out, and get confused!

    just listened to OH NO Ross and Carrie's latest drop - jeebus do I have a headache. Scientology makes me WANT to do drugs!
  19. afternon Member

    I recently discovered "Oh No Ross and Carrie" and have to say, I'm hooked. Their light hearted podcasts delving into pseudoscience and cons like Scientology are easy and entertaining on the ear but they also delve deeper into the reality of the belief systems and just how messed up the belief systems are.

    How the duo remain sane entering the lions den of BS is amazing and when Carrie accidentally gets involved with a sea org meeting- and they both attend the new years event and sing "We stand tall"- these are hilarious!

  22. I saw Zootopia earlier this week and I happened to see that Ross Blocher has a credit on that movie! (He mentions working for Disney in some of the podcasts)
  23. failboat Member

    Lololol

    OSA is sleeping at the switch.

    If you've listened to the latest podcast, or if you've been following ONRAC on facebook, then you know Ross attended the LRH Birthday Event at the Dolby Ballroom in Hollywood on March 19. That was 5 days ago, and more than 6 weeks after the first ONRAC Scientology podcast went online in early February.

    Nevertheless, he received multiple e-mail invites to the event, and filled out his RSVP with all of his true information.

    You can see Ross's brief comments on the incident on their facebook page here - https://www.facebook.com/ONRAC/
    (scroll down to March 19 and March 20.)


    Some screen captures -

    Rest assured, a detailed account will come in a future podcast.

    Show: Oh No, Ross and Carrie!

    We've finally got what you've been looking for: the meaning of life. Yes, you've been thinking to yourself, "How can I be ultimately happy?" Well, the answer is in a 70-page booklet called "The Way to Happiness," that is IN NO WAY affiliated with the Church of Scientology, other than being written by its founder, L. Ron Hubbard. And the organization which distributes said booklet is IN NO WAY Scientologist, other than being run by members of the Church. Hear about Ross and Carrie's visit to the headquarters of The Way to Happiness, and learn why racism isn't a problem, and oxygenated water cures cancer. We hope you're never sad again!

  30. This was mentioned here - https://whyweprotest.net/threads/sc...-shelton-on-amazon.130945/page-3#post-2580906

    The event was Periscoped by Nora Crest, so you may want to check with her website or other online presences to see if she's posted it somewhere. My understanding is that Ross was in attendance, idk whether Carrie was there. They would have been present as audience members, not presenters.
  31. Forgot to mention, ONRAC podcast is affiliated with the Center for Inquiry, where the event was held.

    Ross and Carrie Audit Scientology (Part 8): The Purification Rundown Rundown

    Ross prepares for Scientology's hardcore detoxification program, in which he will sweat out his toxins in a sauna, chug niacin, and drink gross water until he's free of the harmful effects of... peas? Meanwhile, Carrie digs into the dirt of what actually happens in one's body during the rundown, and gets a formal invitation to Sunday Service. Then, join our duo as they attend the weekly service and read LRH's hilariously redundant words of wisdom. And finally, find out how they're found out. Will Ross and Carrie be kicked out of Scientology? Who knows! (Well, we do.)

    Tony Ortega wrote an article in February that outlined Ross Blocher and Carrie Poppy who explore fringe beliefs and pseudoscience by experiencing it for themselves.

    ‘Are you 100 percent American?’ — ‘Ross & Carrie’ investigate joining Scientology
    http://tonyortega.org/2016/02/06/are-you-100-percent-american-ross-and-carrie-investigate-joining-scientology/

    These two gutsy journalists made an 8-part podcast series about their investigations and adventures while checking out the Church of Scientology. They start with taking a personality test (February 2016) and get up to the purification rundown (May 2016). This is an excellent 8 part podcast series and so worth listening to whether you are an ex-scientologist, a never-in, or scientology watcher.

    Here are the links and synopsis of all 8 parts of the podcast....
