This is a bonus interview I’m posting on top of my regularly scheduled content. I actually did this interview with Shane Weightman last year and have been waiting for the right time to post it and circumstances have made that time right now.
Interviews with other former Scientologists provide a more balanced approach than just listening to me. In addition, I’m hoping that existing Scientologists will potentially hear some of these interviews and maybe relate to some of the experiences these people describe and start questioning what is going on around them.
Unlike the first two interviews I’ve done, this time our interviewee is a second generation Scientologist, meaning he was born into a family of Scientologists. Not only that, but Shane’s parents were actually members of the Sea Organization.
Also, Shane was born and raised in Europe. He grew up in France and eventually ended up at a Scientology boarding school in England. If you’ve watched any of my videos or seen the other interviews on my channel, you’ll see an amazing number of similarities between the Scientology experience here and across the pond, but for Shane there were also some very key differences.
In this first part, let’s get all the details of his upbringing in a Scientology world.
