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.
Religious Freedom Smackdown Pt 2
Heather, Jake, Matt, and Glenn finally circle back to finish the smackdown they started with Religious Freedom Pt 1. Jerks of various shapes take place.
Trick or Treat? Jimmy joins Randy, Heather, and Glenn to talk about stoicism.
Matt and Glenn try (and maybe sorta momentarily succeed, we hope) to sift away all partisanship from conversations from this past crazy week and focus on the one unifying message that everyone should agree on. Lewd and derogatory male attitudes towards women can no longer be considered acceptable in our world. It’s about much more than politics now. It’s about our mothers, and daughters, and wives, and friends. It’s about improving our shared social morality. Positive words can have a measurable impact on the physical world. That isn’t just magical thinking. We’re hoping the words of this episode will add our small piece to this current critical mass to make this moment of awareness one that will transform our world and not be soon forgotten. And Matt shares a clip from the Simpsons.
Randy, John, and Heather welcome siblings Jimmy and Ben to talk about the End of the World and to laugh and giggle. A lot. It’s a smart, funny discussion that will have you hoarding wheat, powdered milk, and liquor in no time. Enjoy.
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.

Infants for Hillary, Mingled with Mormonism and Politics
Bob, Jake, John, and eventually Randy get together to discuss politics and Mormonism (but mostly politics) in the context of the United States presidential election of 2016.
D&C 132 For Kids
How to discuss the scriptures with your kids. Or at least how Glenn did it. And recorded it. One time.
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?
