Ep 303 – Smackup: BYU in the Big 12

In a manly display of manly manliness, Matt, Tom, Randy, and Glenn discuss BYU’s bid for the Big 12 conference and read through a letter signed by multiple LGBT advocacy groups urging the Big 12 to pass on BYU due to its anti-LGBT policies.

Jocks gonna jock.

Ep 302 – The New Atheist’s Guide to Not Being a Total Asshole: Episode 4 (Music)

Tune in this week as Sage interviews the wildly talented R. John Williams from the band Faded Paper Figures.  Together they talk about the power of music to transform us, to enlighten us and to best express all of our pent up ex-Mormon angst.

Ep 297 – Education WEAK: The Smackdown

Glenn, Jake, Randy, and John give Elder Holland’s recent Education Week address, “Bound by Loving Ties,” the Olympic-sized smacking down it needs. And the one it deserves.

The Ep 296 – New Atheist’s Guide to Not Being a Total Asshole: Episode 3 (The Devil)

Listen in on the latest installment of the New Atheist’s Guide as Jake and Sage discuss The Devil–with a cameo appearance from the Lord o’ Darkness himself. (Spoiler alert: he has issues.)

Ep 295 – R.M. Contract Smackdown

Glenn, Heather, and Jake get together to smack down a “Returned Missionary Contract” that has been circulating the bloggernacle recently. Fun times and terrifying flashbacks ensue.

Ep 293 – The New Atheist’s Guide to Not Being a Total Asshole: Episode 2 (Hope)

Sage’s New Atheist’s Guide (N.A.G.) continues with episode 2–a conversation with Bob about hope.

Ep 292 – The New Atheist’s Guide to Not Being a Total Asshole: Episode 1 (Fear)

Let’s face it: atheists have a bad rap, and some of that is richly deserved–the smug self-righteousness with which many wield their God-free worldview is about as charming as a menthol enema. However, losing your faith doesn’t have to lead to the dark path of douchebaggery, which the honorable Sage Turk aims to illustrate in an exciting new series: The New Atheist’s Guide to Not Being a Total Asshole. Take a listen to the first installment–a conversation between Sage and Tom on the subject of fear.

Ep 288 – Respect

Inspired by an exchange from Matt and Glenn in the recent “Hey, Jeremy” episode, John, Randy, Jake, Kim McKay, and Heather (with a brief cameo by M.C. Heather) take on the notion of respect. What does it mean to respect someone or their beliefs, especially when you’ve rejected those beliefs for very specific reasons? Can respect be a useful concept for guiding our interactions in a concrete way, or is it a catch-all for someone losing an argument? And most importantly, how do you spell it?

Ep 284 – Kids After Mormonism

Happy Father’s Day! In honor of this manliest of holidays, Bob is joined by Scott and Jake to discuss how Mormonism may or may not affect the decision to have kids as well as decisions on how to parent. Also, Heather joins us a little later to add her perspective.

Ep 281 – Of Tea Parties and Faith Transitions – Larry’s story

Listen as guest contributor Sage takes the driver seat in an interview with Larry – an ex-ultraconservative ex-Mormon as he shares his political and religious life transition. Featuring the dulcet tones of Heather who attempts to class up the joint and set us straight on Bernie Sanders.
