"Since its initial development in the mid-1950s, the Church of Scientology has garnered a reputation as one of the most controversial religions in the world. Originally conceived by American science fiction writer L. Ron Hubbard, Scientology has come under intense public scrutiny for its controversial practices, with many former members accusing the organization of mistreating its loyalists while employing damaging policies against ex-Scientologists which they say have been instrumental in destroying many families.

Ron Miscavige is the father of David Miscavige, the undisputed leader of Scientology who assumed control of the group following Hubbard’s death in 1986. Ron was associated with Scientology for 42 years and served as a member of the Sea Organization – Scientology’s highest branch – before departing in 2012.

Ron partnered with St. Martin’s Press to pen his memoir, Ruthless: Scientology, My Son David Miscavige, and Me. The book was released in May 2016 and reached the top spot on the New York Times Best Sellers list.

Ron Miscavige kindly spoke with me on the morning of July 11 to discuss the book, his decades-long tenure in Scientology and the state of the organization under his son David’s regime." Click for full interview


CBS 58 Television Interview: "Ron Miscavige Still living in West Allis, Still Drawing Crowds Talking Scientology"

My Interview with Jacob Kittilstad from CBS 58 can be found here. Below is a excerpt from the article:

"You may have heard this name before: David Miscavige.

Miscavige‘s official title is Chairman of the Board of the Religious Technology Center, but he is also recognized as the leader of the Church of Scientology.

David Miscavige’s estranged father Ron Miscavige currently lives in West Allis. Last year he toured the country to promote a tell-all book about Scientology and his son. But on Tuesday he was back in the Milwaukee-area to talk to a big crowd at the Greenfield Public Library.

Ron Miscavige tells CBS 58’s Jacob Kittilstad that he now spends a lot of his downtime playing music (and that he actually has a gig lined up at the VA hospital later this summer with his Dixie Land Band). But he also says that it’s these talks - focusing on his separation from his family – that’s most important to him." Read full story here

EXCLUSIVE: David Miscavige’s Father Ron- I Know Where Shelly Is

Below is a small excerpt from my interview with The Dirty Staff.  Click here for the full article.

"One of the biggest controversies surrounding the Church of Scientology has always been where Michele Miscavige (known as Shelly), the wife of Church leader David Miscavige has been. We recently talked extensively with Ron Miscavige, the father of David, who is no longer affiliated with the church and has been disconnected by his family members in the church. Ron’s book, Ruthless: Scientology, My Son David Miscavige, and Me, was just released in paperback yesterday, and he had an answer for us on where he believes Shelly is.

“Her birthday is January 18th,” Ron began with explaining. “My birthday is January 19th. I would always send her a gift on her birthday, because most of the time I wouldn’t have face to face contact with them. Usually on the 19th I would get an acknowledgement- (something like) ‘thanks for the nice gift Ron’- and then I’d get a gift.”

Joe Rogan Podcast

Ron was interview by legendary comedian Joe Rogan on the "Joe Rogan Experience Podcast". The Church of Scientology actually contacted Joe prior to this interview to get ahead of what Ron was going to share on the show. Don't miss this powerful interview:
