Ep 502 – Jordan Peterson, Sam Harris, and Truth – Part 1
What is truth? Is there a difference between truth and fact? And where can real truth be found after rejecting the one-time source of One-True-Truth that is the Mormon Church? Glenn, Tom, Bob, and Jake discuss the infamous January 2017 “Truth” debate between Jordan Peterson and Sam Harris.

Ep 494 – The Hoax
Yesterday, on May 17 2018, Jonathan Streeter leveraged news of a real meeting between leaders of the Mormon church and the NAACP to create a fake apology from the Mormon Church regarding its history of institutional racism. Zandra Vranes, from Sistas in Zion, responded to this hoax on a live stream FB video that was one of the most amazing things I have ever heard and seen. It’s all very complicated. Today, Glenn shares his reaction to both Jonathan’s Hoax and Zandra’s response.
Zandra’s video response:
To the people who just retraumatized Black people in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. May God have mercy on your souls…
