Apostasy

Glenn Ostlund explores the narrative of lost and found, apostasy and restoration, that is so pervasive in Mormon culture (and beyond). Guests include Jake Frost, Erica Shirts, Mike Tannehill, Rock Waterman, and Michael Ellis, with closing remarks from Infants Randy Snyder and Matt Long.

    Guys, thanks for creating this podcast. It is chicken soup for my corrupted soul. Very glad to have you back podcasting regularly.

    I think it’s sexy when Glenn using his folklore jargon. : P

      So does Tom. It’s part of his etiological charm.

        So does Tom?? Ethiological charm? What does that even mean?? (insert Tom sigh) Glenn’s folklore jargon gives me headaches… :)

    You bros. won’t be able to make and post these things fast enough. You are hilarious and the only thing that would make it better is if I was able to be there with you! Keep it up. I’ve bookmarked the site and hope to see something soon.

      Probably not, but we’re trying. If you still have an itch that needs to be scratched, there is additional material (like the full unedited raw interviews used for the podcast) available through our FB page:

    I’ve been looking for something that captures what I loved about Mormon Expression. This is it. It’s not the same format – it’s a bit more like Radiolab. But it has that same feeling that got me hooked on Mormon Expression. Glad to have found this podcast.

      Cool! Glad you are enjoying it so far!

    Listened to them all, good stuff.

    Topic suggestion: I’d really like the panel to read and discuss “The Righteous Mind” by Jon Haidt (check out his interview with Bill Moyers, or his two TED talks).

    Very well done, Glenn!

  • Mormoreeno

    Really enjoyed the podcast! Please keep on exactly as you’re doing!
    I was especially glad to hear from Mike Tannehill again. He was such a great member of the Mormon Expession crew!

  • A. Krause

    Every time someone looses a loved one, someone who influenced and mentored, to me it seems only natural to attempt restoring that influence. Personally I have find myself trying to imagine what my departed loved ones would have said or done or councled me to do. Extending that idea to influential historical figures or time periods seems to be an obvious extension of our human nature, not a cultural obsession.
    Interesting topic, thanks for the thoughts.

    I loved the segments on free agency, leadership, what they mean, and the difference between the gospel and the church. Oops, I meant the harmony between the two. Great one.

    I love Randy & Tom from Mormon Expression, so was thrilled to find them here. Plus, I’ve run out of podcasts there & Mormon Stories (long disaffection process I guess), so happy to find more to hear. You guys are hilarious.
