The New Atheist’s Guide to Not Being a Total Asshole: Episode 8 (Family)

Listener Essay

Posted January 16th, 2017

It’s hard enough parenting kids when Jesus is your co-pilot.  What do you do when he jumps ship? (or after you mutiny and throw him to the crocodiles — maybe that’s a better metaphor).

Sage is back to interview APEs Matt and Kristin (Atheist Parents Extraordinaire) — with a few comments from third-wheel-Glenn — as they discuss raising kids sans-faith-in-God.  Stick around to the end for a special announcement!

Mormon Leaks

Interview

Posted January 13th, 2017

Matt and Tom sit down with Ryan McKnight and Privacy P Pratt (not his real name) to discuss General Authority pay stubs, the difference between mormon- and wiki- leaking, and leaks and leakers and just a bunch of leaking stuff in general.  You’re in for a real treat (as opposed to urine for a real treat).  Cuz details matter.

Smackdown

Posted January 8th, 2017

Don’t you miss Sunday School?  Don’t you miss frantically preparing your gospel doctrine lesson during sacrament meeting? Don’t you miss showing off your knowledge in class by citing scripture and verse or showing off your testimony with a well-rehearsed and choked-up personal anecdote?  Well grab your quad, your cardigan, and your clip on tie because it’s time to study D&C lesson 24 with Glenn, Randy and Heather smackdown style.

Light the World Christmas Smackaround

Panel Discussion

Posted December 22nd, 2016

Jesus listens to Infants on Thrones, and so can you.  So open up your gift from the Infants a little early this year and gird up your loins against the war on Secularistmas.  ‘Cuz today Glenn, Randy, Jake, and John read through the recent “Light the World” advent program from the LDS church.  With glee.  Seriously, there was some literal bowl-full-of-jellying going on during this one.  And while we may not have been wearing ugly sweaters, we did find some of the most horribly worst all-time Christmas songs to intersperse throughout the conversations.  So Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and all the rest.  Enjoy.   WWHAJD?

Hinduism

Listener Essay

Posted December 21st, 2016

Guest host Drew takes a break from his patented Godly Google Goggles to walk us through this obscure little religious thingy from the country that brought us Tandoori Chicken and Tikka Masala.  Unofficially subtitled “Everything You Never Knew You Didn’t Want to Know about Hinduism so You Never Cared to Ask,” Drew takes us on a fascinating journey beyond the red dot.  Listen to this one with your third ear.

A Very Atheist Christmas

Lightmindedness

Posted December 19th, 2016

You get to be a fly on the wall in this very special episode of Infants on Thrones.  And you get to hear Matt sing with his wife Kristin.  Totally worth the price of admission.  This was recorded at a live Christmas musical event on Dec 18, 2016.

Infants on Westworld

Panel Discussion

Posted December 8th, 2016

Lindsay Hansen Park and Andrew Ainsworth join Glenn, Matt, Scott and John to geek out all over the HBO series Westworld.  SPOILERS included free of charge.  And plenty of existential “what is reality?” discussions for those not following the show.  These Infantile delights have Infantile ends.

The Hazards of SHONE

Minisode

Posted December 6th, 2016

Glenn provides an update on the SHONE project (Short History of Nearly Everything) and asks for some SHONEY volunteers.  And then – since it is December and all — Glenn also shares some music from The Decembrists (get it?)   He may even sing for you.
