Lawrence Wright, the author of Going Clear and The Looming Tower, joins Reza for the first ever socially-distanced episode of Rough Draft. They talk about his eerily accurate prediction of the COVID-19 crisis in his new book The End of October, swap Church of Scientology stories, and explore Lawrence’s focus on the “donkey character.”
