The Philosophies of Men, Mingled with Humor

Ep 591 – Guilty Not Guilty

What is Guilt?  What is Shame?  What is Empathy?  How do all of these things affect us?  It’s time to evaluate where we stand. This episode includes 30 min of new material and a throwback to IOT’s 2nd episode: Guilt, a panel discussion between Tom, Randy, Bob, Matt, and Glenn that was originally published on Aug 30, 2012.

Ep 590 – Seven Years of Infanity

Seven years.  Six Hundred-Fifty-plus episodes.  Six Million-plus downloads.  Four Million-plus listeners.  Let’s pause to celebrate what we have done and listen back to some of the great contributions from Randy, Scott, Bob, Matt, Tom, Glenn, John, Jake, Alison, and Heather.  Enjoy!

Ep 589 – Three Things to Change about the Mormon Church

Another Jeremy Goff smackdown, and another exemplary satirically celestial appearance of the one and only (if only that were accchttually true…) Stephen Erastus Knudsen III — the mold from which Jeremy Goff has been cut.  Enjoy!

Ep 588 – Brigham Young, Blood Atonement, and the True Love of Christ

What do Brigham Young and Charles Manson have in common? All you need is love — AKA shedding a wicked person’s blood so that they can pay for their sins and be exalted in the highest degree of the Celestial Kingdom. Cuz that is what Jesus REALLY meant when he said “love your neighbor as yourself.” It’s right there in the Journal of Discourses. Straight from the mouth of a prophet of God. Take a listen.

Ep 587 – Mo-Side Out

What if the emotions from Pixar’s “Inside Out” got together in a Mormon-formed brain that experienced a faith crisis? Which emotion dominates in a pre, mid, or post-faith crisis mind? Those were the questions we playfully explored in our Sunstone panel on Aug 1, 2015 at the University of Utah. Listen in as Glenn narrates and the audience chooses exactly what will become of Joy (Jake), Sadness (Scott), Disgust (Matt), Fear (John), and Anger (Randy).

Ep 586 – Why People Leave the Mormon Church

Glenn reads (and responds to) a Jeremy Goff blog post about why people leave THE CHURCH OF JESUS CHRIST OF LATTER-DAY SAINTS, and then revisits a classic Infants’ panel discussion “50 Ways To Leave the Church” with Tom, Randy, Jake, and John.  Enjoy.

Ep 585 – Jeremy Goff Smackdown: Why Nephi Killing Laban Should Be a Totally Awesome Testimony Builder

When is murder not actually murder?  Jeremy Goff sets the record straight once again.  You just gotta hear it to believe it.

Ep 584 – Sarcasm and the Healing Power of Humor

Can sarcasm and humor help heal the wounds of a faith crisis?  Those are the questions considered in today’s episode as Glenn is interviewed by author and life coach Wendi Jensen for her group Thriving After Mormonism.

Ep 583 – Mormon Missions, Patriarchal Blessings, and Streaking Samurai BYU Idaho Religion Teachers

Three episodes in one.  First, Glenn and Tom reflect on their missions and share how their patriarchal blessings impacted the course of their lives.  Then you get to hear a previously unpublished episode from 9 years ago that goes into more detail about their mormon missions.  And finally, the story of a one time streaking missionary who is now a religion teacher at BYU Idaho.  A fun, jam-packed episode.  Enjoy,

Ep 582 – The (fictional) Apology of Joseph Smith

What would Joseph Smith say if he were to offer some kind of apology today?  Glenn takes a stab at imagining such an apology.  Tom and Brady take a stab at stabbing that stab.  Sorry if that sounds like way too much stabbing.  Blame it on the angel with the flaming sword.
