Infants on Thrones

The Philosophies of Men, Mingled with Humor


The Perpetual Education Fund… Or Fraud?

Randy is joined by Bob and special guest Aaron Tunell to discuss LDS Inc.’s Perpetual Education Fund, a program started in 2001 to help students in developing countries. But all is not as it seems on the surface.

General Conference Smack…up?

Join in as Jake and Randy find a rare pocket of effusive praise for Elder Patrick Kearon’s recent conference address (Refuge from the Storm). Warning–may cause cognitive dissonance.

Hard to Find Mormon Videos: The Podcast

Today, Tom and Jake are joined by Tom Doggett, the man behind the Hard-to-Find Mormon Videos channel on YouTube, to discuss the origins of the project and the goldmine that is the LDS media archive. For those that grew up on such national treasures as Cipher in the Snow or Johnny Lingo, this is gonna be an eight-cow episode.

The Abrahamic Covenant Revisited

Glenn walks us through another Fro-back Friday episode — a discussion recorded in December 2010 between pre-Infants Glenn, Tom, and Scott (aka “Jesse”) with special guests Mike Tannehill and Brandt Malone. It’s all about the importance of bloodlines. And posterity. And covenants. And dispensations. And how Abraham sort of trumps Jesus in the whole hierarchy of what it is that makes Mormons so damn special. Enjoy.

An Evening With Elder Ballard

Heather and Jake join Scott in picking apart Elder Ballard’s recent address to CES employees.

The Historical Easter

It’s Easter. And that means it is time for John, Randy, Heather and Glenn to talk about Easter. And Easter customs. And the historical Jesus. And death. And chocolate. And The Life of Brian. And a bunch of other stuff, too.

Pornography, Fathers-in-Law, and YOU

This is a fro-back episode to the first ever pre-Infant group-discussion between Jake, Matt, Randy, and Glenn, with some important love and support from Heather C. from Mormon Expositor (not Infant Heather C..  Yeah, it’s confusing.) and Erica S. And it is funny. And abhorrent. And a definite portent of things to come.

Randy’s Really Real PPI

Glenn, Matt, Heather, and John interview Randy for his long-awaited PPI. Randall Snyder is a skeptic, a naturalist, a humanist, an atheist, a proud husband of 18 year and father of 3 sons, an orthodontist, a huge fan of the USC Trojans, the seahawks, The Simpsons, Louis C.K., Monty Python, and Key and Peele.
Randy is the fifth of seven children brought up in the church in southern California. He attended Ricks College, served a mission in Tempe Arizona, finished at BYU and went on to USC dental school. In his mid thirtees, after serving actively in the church his whole George W Bush voting adult life including as a high priests’ group leader which is kind of a big deal, he began investigating the church’s truth claims in 2008 which set him on the path toward secularism, skepticism, philosophism, flaming liberalism, and podcastism. Known for his intensity and foul mouth, Randy is the inimitable angry atheist of Infants on Thrones and everybody’s BFF.

Church Museum

Sage and Tom recently took a tour in the recently remodeled Church History Museum in downtown Salt Lake City and recorded and commented about their experience.
