Is there an echo in here?
Facebook posts. Podcast listeners. Church groups. Political affiliation. Echo chambers are definitely all around us. Glenn, Scott, and Matt each discuss their own thoughts on these Echo Chambers at the Phoenix Sunstone conference. Recorded on Saturday March 11, 2017.
The First Vision
Last weekend, the Church released a new and improved video depiction of the First Vision that claimed to incorporate the various accounts Joseph Smith gave to “provide additional perspectives and insights into this remarkable event.” Glenn, Matt, Randy, Bob, and Jake decide to do a bit of remarking themselves.
The Righteous Mind
Heather, Glenn, and Jake team up for some good old-fashion infant shenanigans as they discuss Jonathan Haidt’s 2012 book on moral foundations theory, The Righteous Mind.
Evaluating Evidence: Trump Dossier Ep. 2 – Infants Disclaimer
What is “fake news?” Scott, Matt, Jake, Bob and Glenn discuss whether or not evaluating the Trump Dossier is a good idea. Let us know your opinions on the website.
Girls Gone Thrones
In this femisode, Heather, her sister Jennifer, Jennifer’s friend Crys and Crys’s friend Charlie get together to form the largest women’s Infants on Thrones panel in the world–presided over and mansplained by priesthood holder Brother Jake.
First they smack up Jennifer’s Reddit diatribe against the much-shared facebook post inviting Women’s March attendees to join “the oldest and largest women’s organization in the world’ the LDS Reliesosidy: Relief Society is NOT a Women’s Group!
Then they smack down a Mormon Women Stand article written by a women who marches around her privileged domestic palace shaming other women who aren’t content to march like she does.
In their spare time they talk about Crys and Charlie’s experiences at the Women’s March and what girls would do if they could hold an activity in the church without a priesthood holder present.
Reflections on Guilt
Hop into the Infant time machine back to August 2012 when Tom, Glenn, Randy, Matt, and Bob explore the concept of guilt.
Light the World Christmas Smackaround
Jesus listens to Infants on Thrones, and so can you. So open up your gift from the Infants a little early this year and gird up your loins against the war on Secularistmas. ‘Cuz today Glenn, Randy, Jake, and John read through the recent “Light the World” advent program from the LDS church. With glee. Seriously, there was some literal bowl-full-of-jellying going on during this one. And while we may not have been wearing ugly sweaters, we did find some of the most horribly worst all-time Christmas songs to intersperse throughout the conversations. So Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and all the rest. Enjoy. WWHAJD?
Rated R Movies and Mormons
Bob is joined by fellow Infants Randy, Jake, and Heather — plus special guest Logan — to discuss why Mormons tend to avoid Rated R movies, including fun side-track topics like degrading music, sabbath day observance, and violent video games.
Infants on Westworld
Lindsay Hansen Park and Andrew Ainsworth join Glenn, Matt, Scott and John to geek out all over the HBO series Westworld. SPOILERS included free of charge. And plenty of existential “what is reality?” discussions for those not following the show. These Infantile delights have Infantile ends.
The Definitive Meaning of Life. Period.
Now that you all have a few days of Thanksgiving leftovers digesting away away in your guts, maybe it’s time to reflect on “why” we are so thankful instead of just “what” we are so thankful about. So tune in to Brothers Snyder and Hamer (Randy & Jimmy and John & Ben) and Sister Craw (Heather) and a few clips from our wannabe totem spirit beasts (The Pythons) for the end-all and be-all of Meaning of Life discussions. Spoiler Alert: This one says it all. The Definitive Meaning of Life. Period.
