Episode 96 - Gang Member Bryan O’Shea

• March 18th, 2015

Most of us had boring childhoods.  Our teenage years were probably spent wasting time with some jackass friends.  Bryan O'Shea had a similar experience, just with very different friends.  Bryan was a member of The Insane Popes, one of many violent street gangs from Chicago's south side.  Bryan has seen a lot in his life, and he sits down with Collin to talk all about his experiences, his crimes, the friends he lost, the friends he wishes he'd lost, and much more.  Plus, Collin honors a recently deceased woman who didn't tell on him when he pissed the bed.  Check out the website at www.awkwardmomentspod.com, like us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/awkwardmomentspod, and follow us on Twitter at www.twitter.com/awkwardpodcast.  Collin likes you, and wants to be your friend.

Episode 95 - Former Scientologist Synthia Fagen

• March 11th, 2015

According to the official Scientology website, which we don't recommend you visit, Scientology is "a religion that offers a precise path leading to a complete and certain understanding of one’s true spiritual nature and one’s relationship to self, family, groups, Mankind, all life forms, the material universe, the spiritual universe and the supreme being".  Whatever it is, it's certainly controversial.  Synthia Fagen used to be a member of Scientology, and she did not leave it with a lot of positive feelings.  She sits down with Collin to talk about what leads one into Scientology, what gets one out of Scientology, and what exactly happens in between.  Also, Collin talks about being one of the least cool kids in a teen church program!  Hit us up on Facebook at www.facebook.com/awkwardmomentspod, and follow us on Twitter at www.twitter.com/awkwardpodcast.  Collin likes you, and wants to be your friend.
