How We Cleared Ourselves of Dianetics

If you’ve listened to our Dianetics episode, you’ll know we found it a very painful read. Also, we resented having to purchase copies of the book, since it was either unavailable from our local libraries or we were too embarrassed to check it out from our place of work.

Episode 30 – Dianetics

Dianetics by L. Ron Hubbard


Kait, Renata, and their pre-clear guest Sigrid (@SigridEllis) read Dianetics by L. Ron Hubbard, a man who is on record as not believing in second drafts. It’s definitely the worst thing we’ve ever read, and also now we’re afraid we’re going to get sued. Why didn’t we just keep reading Nora Roberts books? Because then, dear listeners, we wouldn’t be able to explain to you how to clear all your engrams and reach Tone 4. You’re welcome.*

* We are not actually licensed auditors and cannot promise to clear any engrams whatsoever. Please don’t sue us.

Content warning: This episode contains discussion of abortion, attempted abortion, and domestic violence.

Readers advisory: Here.

Candy pairing:  Kait says an apple with a razor blade inside, Renata says a misprinted Laffy Taffy, Sigrid says Candy Blox.

Coming up next: New Moon by Stephenie Meyer.

Special note: Our New Moon episode is our one-year anniversary! To celebrate, we plan to play a drinking game while we record. Please send us suggested rules for the drinking game, either on Twitter, Facebook, or email at worstbestsellers at gmail. We are also tentatively planning a Twilight movie tweet-along for some time the evening of October 4th. It’s currently streaming on Netflix, but if you don’t have Netflix and want to participate, start tracking down a DVD now.

Thanks, Best Listeners!
