Infants on Thrones

The Philosophies of Men, Mingled with Humor

Category: Panel Discussion (page 1 of 18)

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  Then you get to hear a previously unpublished episode from 9 years ago that goes into more detail about their mormon missions.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 575 – My TBM Uncle and the Dow of Mormonism

I talked with my TBM Uncle (a former Bishop/Stake President/Mission President) a few days ago about Infants on Thrones.  Wow, what an experience!  I share it with you in today’s sharing time, and re-published a long lost IOT episode between myself (Glenn), Randy, Rock Waterman, and Andrea Staats (aka “Eliza R Snitch”).  Enjoy!

Ep 570 – Bill Reel, Dogma, and Slippery Pete in the Quest for Well-Being

What is “well being?” What (if anything) does that have to do with a belief in God? Why is Jordan Peterson so dang slippery for Tom? Glenn and Tom sit down with Bill Reel and a few other guests to discuss the main issues raised by Sam Harris and Jordan Peterson in their Aug 2018 Vancouver discussion on Dogma:

Ep 566 – The Truth of Lies and Consciousness and Hallucinating Reality

Today Glenn is joined by Brady, Tom, and a small gaggle of live virtual audience members to discuss the intersection between Plato’s idea of “The Lie of the Soul,” Anil Seth’s TED Talk on the way our brains hallucinate reality, and video blogger Matt Christiansen’s response to the recent outrage in Washington DC over a confrontation between native American protestors and Catholic high school kids. It’s a big one! Enjoy.

Glenn and Matt are joined by Colton and Brad to talk about the meaning of life.

Ep 557 – Shame Follow-up with Dr. Colton Miller

Dr. Colton Miller returns to Infants on Thrones to walk Tom and Matt through his professional reactions to last week’s episode on shame. Most important takeaway: shame is what happens when a person confuses doing a bad thing with BEING a bad person. Listen to hear more.
