Ep 401 – Weird Nutty Mormon History

How many Mormon Priesthood leaders does it take to rob a train? Which LDS prophet was poisoned a few days after attending a Bohemian Club in San Fransisco? Kenneth Lines has found a lot of nutty things in Mormon History. Just nutty, I tell ya. And he talks about a lot of them with Glenn, Bob, and John Hamer. And the nuttiest part is that you get to listen.

Ep 399 – Hamer on Strang

John Hamer talks about Joseph Smith successor James Strang and the impressive engravings on Strang’s Vorhee Plates. This is John’s presentation from Salt Lake City Sunstone 2017.

Ep 396 – Infants on Rick and Morty – Episode 1

Randy, Jake, Heather, and John discuss the mind-blowingly intelligentertainmentism that is Rick and Morty. And honest, that is totally a real-ish-tic word.

Ep 386 – Infants on Game of Thrones: P1 – Wypipo Guilt on Parade

Glenn and Matt’s smack up of Michael Harriot’s “The Black Person’s Guide to Game of Thrones” ultimately leads to a discussion about Passive Aggressiveness in Mormon Culture.

Ep 383 – That SHONE Episode thingy

At long last. Here it is. Glenn and a bunch of listeners guide you through the Universe. Bang. A big one. And don’t worry — you always end up right where you started when exploring the universe. Because, you know…. science.

Ep 331 – A Very Atheist Christmas

You get to be a fly on the wall in this very special episode of Infants on Thrones.  And you get to hear Matt sing with his wife Kristin.  Totally worth the price of admission.  This was recorded at a live Christmas musical event on Dec 18, 2016.

Ep 325 – Infant Mannequin Challenge

Listen in as all nine Infants hold HILARIOUS poses for the current all-the-rage Mannequin Challenge.  You’ll never believe who shows up to pose along with us!

Ep 321 – I Don’t Belong Here: The Movie

A year ago today, the LDS Church enacted a policy placing restrictions on the membership of children living in same-sex households. The year since has been one of anguish for those affected, those that love them, and the membership as a whole as they try to grapple with these messages from their leaders. Listener Jeff Burr volunteered to help us make the following video in commemoration of the policy and its effects, based on Heather’s recent minisode/song on the latest Infant General Conference.
