Fri, Mar 24, 2017


In this second episode of season 4, Louise, Bill, and Jaymes interview Jon Atack, the published author who wrote A Piece of Blue Sky and Opening Minds. Jon was a Scientologist, and so the gang takes a look at the parallels between the Jehovah’s Witnesses and Scientology with Jaymes reading a 3 minute elevator pitch on what Jehovah’s Witnesses believe. The team also takes a look at Russia’s decision to ban Jehovah’s Witnesses, which sparks a debate on whether the government is wrong or right in taking this action. Jaymes also announces a new website, JWSoapbox.com, and tells Louise what colour stockings she should wear to a party she’s about to go to. All in all, a fun show!

Author: The JW Podcast Team
Sun, Mar 05, 2017


In this episode listen to John Redwood tell you what happened from right inside the court room in the Fessler v Watchtower Society case. John took extensive notes and recordings and was able to interview the jury after the case settled.
This was only the second jury trial against Watchtower, and the whole 5 days were a damning indictment on the policies and procedures of Watchtower society, with two whole days dedicated to arguing about whether elders were ‘ministers’ or not. John tells us the surprising outcome along with other fascinating details about how Watchtower try to stall and obfuscate in child abuse cases.
