Infants on Thrones

The Philosophies of Men, Mingled with Humor


Little Factories

In 1976, our favorite LDS Apostle, Boyd K. Packer gave a talk in priesthood session “To Young Men Only” that was not subsequently published in the Ensign the following month, nor can it be found as a conference talk on today. It was turned into a pamphlet in 1981 “To Young Men Only” and that text is available on but the audio and video are not on the official website of the LDS church.

But we Infants found an audio copy. And in this episode, Glenn, Tom, Matt, and Jake dissect it as it has never been dissected before. Hold on to your little factories, cuz this is gonna be a good one.

Bob’s Superlative Disorder

Move over Mormon Cred scale, Bob has a newer, bolder insight du jour. Beyond a shadow of a doubt, this is by far the most important insight du jour Bob has ever had about the absolute most important issue of our day!

Listen in as Randy, Tom, Jake, and Glenn argue over and over (and over) about this incredibly important thing that — in the end — is so vitally impactful and meaningful for every person in this world that it may ultimately have less than zero meaning or impact on anyone at all. Yes. We get that deep.

Taxicab Confessional

Glenn shares a few minor epiphanies realized today in a Taxicab with some co-workers in Tokyo.

Born Again Mike

Randy has made a new friend — Mike, a Born Again Christian who left a comment on our website here:

Born Again Mike just wants Randy to be fair and open-minded and let the evidence lead him where the evidence will (aka unto Christ). How will Randy respond? Scott, Alison, and Glenn join Randy to figure it all out.

My Lucky Day

Have you ever flunked a worthiness interview because you are a woman and your stake president feels that your attitude towards patriarchy is just not what it should be?

If you are having this problem, the solution is simple. Just be a man. Even an abusive one. Sometimes that’s just easier. And it might just make it your lucky day.

This listener essay is from Jill Searle. She is joined for a panel discussion by Jake, Erica, Matt, Scott, and Glenn.

The Mountain of the Lord

Tom, Matt, and Randy review the LDS movie “The Mountain of the Lord.”

Two Years and Kicking

Now, two years later, we look back and say, “What the hell were we thinking?”

Happy Birthday to us.
