| 0 comments

Hoooo boy, more Scientology? Yes. Yes, it is. As our series rounds the midway point, join Ross and Carrie on a visit to the L. Ron Hubbard Life Exhibition. Let your eyes widen as you hear the various questionable biographical details of the founder's life, from being the youngest-ever Eagle Scout to performing microbiological studies... by himself. Plus, Carrie tests the e-meter, Ross recounts a previous visit where he was ejected from the building, and we review the official Scientology literature on the controversial practice of "disconnecting" from loved ones who question the Church.

| 1 comment

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!

ONRAC's Scientology episodes are makin' waves. E-meter waves.

| 0 comments


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:

"It's a great place to jump into Ross and Carrie's deep, long-running corpus of investigative work." - Boing Boing

"Blocher shines explaining the surreal Scientology texts with their pedantic, David Foster Wallace-style footnotes defining simple things like 'dispensable' and 'take a walk' to replace them with buzzwords from L. Ron Hubbard... The one message Blocher and Poppy always take pains to impart is the overwhelming sincerity of their subjects, and Scientology might be chief among them." - The Onion's A.V. Club

Ross and Carrie Inventory Their Personalities: Myers-Briggs Edition

| 2 comments

Ross and Carrie take the most popular personality inventory (do NOT call it a test!) to find out what makes them tick. Is personality testing just an unscientific fad, or does it really reveal insight into what makes us all different? Are there exactly 16 kinds of people? Is Carrie secretly introverted and living a lie? Does Ross have commitment problems? You might think these questions couldn't be answered by a random stranger, BUT THEY CAN.

NEW EPISODE! Ross and Carrie, sick and tired of being moderately gorgeous, finally take the next step in bettering themselves, by following Alex Chiu's regimen of reverse-aging products, including Gorgeouspil, Immortality Foot Clamps, and Immortality Rings. By day two, they should look 30% more gorgeous, and by the end of the month, should be "as gorgeous as a super model" and on their way to immortality. Best $100 ever spent? You be the judge.
