Ep 354 – A Mormon Girl Walks Into a Funeral… Walks Out on Mormonism

Bob is joined by special guest Kat, his sister, who recently resigned from Mormonism after attending their grandmother’s Mormon funeral. Something happened at the funeral, something both shocking and routine: a bishop’s talk. Bob recreates the talk word for word, and the two of them discuss what happened after reminiscing about growing up Mormon.

Ep 338 – Mormon Hypocrisy Disguised as Legitimacy

Bob is joined by himself to discuss the latest attack on John Dehlin’s research aka “John Dehlin and the Weaponization of Scientific Research” aka some Mormon blogger really wanting to be taken seriously.

Ep 294 – Infants for Hillary, Mingled with Mormonism and Politics

Bob, Jake, John, and eventually Randy get together to discuss politics and Mormonism (but mostly politics) in the context of the United States presidential election of 2016.

Ep 250 – 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?

Ep 238 – Internet Impact on Mormons

Randy is joined by Bob, Heather, and John to discuss the impact the Internet has had on Mormons and LDS membership growth (among other topics ranging from the evolving outsider view of Mormons to the latest LDS, Inc. retrenchment via its new policy toward gay parents and their children).

Ep 231 – Disney Songs for Alienated Mormon Kids

Do you love the Mormon Church?  Do you love their new totally Christ-like policy of alienation and exclusion for children of certain kinds of abominable parents?  Do you love the magical songs of Disney?  Do you love Infants on Thrones’ sing-a-long smack downs?  Well, if you love all that stuff right there, then this is the episode you have never known you were always waiting for your entire life.  Enjoy!

Special thanks to Craig Keeling for the album art.

Ep 229 – Smackdown: New LDS Policy Punishing Children If Their Parents Are Gay

What’s worse than murder and rape? The only sin so powerful it punishes innocent children for the “sins” of their parents even if, you know, that doesn’t sound like Mormon Doctrine… In this episode, Bob, Matt, Randy, and Scott discuss the new policy changes from the Mormon Church that set apart homosexuality as a sin unlike any other.

Children of same-sex married people must now be 18 to be baptized and must disavow their parents’ marriage. Follow along as we smackdown the changes to LDS Handbook 1.

Ep 213 – End Times

Tanner, a blogger at “Zelph on the Shelf” (great name, huh?) joins Jake, Matt, Randy and Scott to talk about End Times and Latter Days and Preppers and all that good stuff.

Ep 174 – The Lost Book of Mormon

Randy, Matt, John and Glenn review Avi Steinberg’s “The Lost Book of Mormon: A Journey Through the Mythic Lands of Nephi, Zarahemla, and Kansas City, Missouri” – a playful look at Joseph Smith as a prolific American author. Sorry, no singing this time.
