Infants on Thrones

The Philosophies of Men, Mingled with Humor


Glenn’s PPI

Randy valiantly conducts Glenn’s PPI (Personal Priesthood Interview — not really an actual PPI, it’s just a joke everyone). Tom, Jake, Matt and Heather also chime in from time to time as well. And yes, Tom finally gets Glenn to talk more about what it is like to be arrested and spend 24 hours in jail. Neat, huh?

Child Abuse in the Church

Matt Long talks with John Dehlin about the recently re-released article on their website, titled, “Effectiveness of Church Approach to Preventing Child Abuse.” Spoiler alert: Matt was not impressed.

Pride and Humility

The infants are so humbled by the tremendous honor of being the chosen few able to discuss this great and important topic of humility.

John, Bob, Jake, Randy, and Heather tackle these magnanimous questions.  Can modesty apply to anything other than shoulder porn?  Is the Mormon concept of humility just code for low self-esteem? If humility isn’t a commandment, is it worth cultivating at all?  And of course, who is worse:  Hitler, Stalin, or Ezra Taft Benson?  Or possibly Colonel Sanders.  But definitely Benson.

A Conversation with My Past, Present, and Future Gay Self: Benji Schwimmer

Heather, John, Kristen, and Matt interview one of America’s favorite dancers Benji Schwimmer in the first of a new Infants on Thrones series: A Conversation with My Past, Present, and Future Gay Self.

Carl the Casual Satanist: Episode 4 – Carl Calls his Mother

In this, the 4th episode of Carl the Casual Satanist, Carl calls his mother to confront her about the surprise visit he received in Episode 3. (Special thanks to Heather for participating.)

True Millennials

Matt, Randy, and Glenn smack down Elder Nelson’s recent address to BYU-H students. America’s favorite dancer Benji Schwimmer joins us for the second half. And Randy’s favorite celebrity Gwenyth Paltrow may or may not make a special appearance as well.

Randy vs. Heather

Randy finally convinces Heather that the Mormon Church is pure unadulterated evil and that no people of good conscience could associate themselves with it. Get your noisemakers and sparklers ready for the moment of Randy’s ultimate victory.

Heather’s PPI

Tom is joined with Bob, Randy and Glenn to finally sit down with Heather to talk about how awesome she is.

The Vanilla Isis Yeehawd and Militant Mormonism

What the heck is going on with this Captian Moroni rancher guy up in Oregon who is defying the US Government? Isn’t there an article of faith somewhere about honoring governments, or something like that? Either way, listen in as Matt talks with Special Infant Guest Drew about the whole crazy story and its cultural ties to Mormonism.

Mormonism, Diablo, and Life as a Game

Bob walks us through the parallels between Mormonism and the game Diablo 3. What if Mormonism ultimately is just a role-playing game?
