Leah Remini

On the heels of her recent Emmy nomination for Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath, the dazzling actress sits with us. As a child, Leah found herself in the throws of Scientology. After 35+ years in the church, she’s now disillusioned with the problematic institution. Her new calling? To dismantle the cult and dissect it dangerous practices. Her new podcast, co-hosted by former Scientology executive Mike Rinder, is called Scientology: Fair Game. Today, Leah and I discuss the real toll her (former) faith took, the pernicious power of this organization, and why she feels an obligation to continue onward and keep fighting.
