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.
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.
