The Philosophies of Men, Mingled with Humor

Author: Glenn Ostlund (page 2 of 54)

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  Then you get to hear a previously unpublished episode from 9 years ago that goes into more detail about their mormon missions.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.

Ep 581 – Conversations with Quad, P2

Glenn and Tom are joined by Brady Bluhm to have another condescending conversation with Quad (the almighty).

Ep 580 – Policy Reversal Redux

Tom, Randy, and Heather discuss some recent Mormon-news topics and revisit the infamous policy reversal with some new information.

Ep 579 – Renee and the Jehovahs Witnesses

Glenn and Tom sit down with  Street Epistemologist extraordinaire Anthony Magnabosco to talk with Renee Cordeschi about her exit from the Jehovah’s Witness cult.  Keep track of any the Mormon parallels.  There will be a quiz (only 144,000 people will pass).

Ep 578 – Conversations with Quad, Part 1

Glenn recently discovered that he can actually talk to Quad, and that Quad will talk back. Forefront on his mind was whether or not there is some kind of eternal justice in this world or beyond. Tom Perry joins in for the smackdown. It’s a good one. Enjoy.
 
P.S. What questions would you like to ask Quad?
