The first New Humanist podcast
Following the leaking of the now infamous Tom Cruise video earlier this year, the internet saw the emergence of Anonymous, a protest movement dedicated to bringing down the Church of Scientology. On 10 February Anonymous burst from the internet onto the streets, with large numbers of masked teenagers and students picketing Scientology centres worldwide.
They’ve been doing it every month since, and New Humanist’s Paul Sims and stand-up comedian Christina Martin paid a visit to one of their London protests to see what Anonymous are all about. They produced a 12-minute podcast – our first ever – looking at whether the group, with their masks and silly music, can really be taken seriously. Are they genuinely concerned about the issues surrounding Scientology, or are they just in it for a laugh?
