Ep 565 – Letter from Birmingham Jail

What is the difference between justice and injustice? What is the difference between actively disrupting the status quo and passively maintaining peace and order? In commemoration of Martin Luther King Jr Day, Glenn shares with you his thoughts on the powerful and impactful messages in the Letter from Birmingham Jail; how it has influenced key times in his life, and the potential influence it has for today.

Ep 558 – Go Jake, Go!

Our beloved “Brother Jake” suffered a sudden, serious cardiac event on November 28 and remains in intensive care. This episode contains a few of Jake’s many wonderful contributions to this project. His family also created a Go Fund Me page to raising money for his recovery so he can get back to being the devoted husband, father, brother, son, and friend we know and love.

Ep 426 – The Spiritual (sort of) Brain (kinda) Episode that Rocked the World of All Those Who’s World it Rocked

Why do otherwise smart and intelligent people defend really bad ideas? How does our brain respond to perceived threats? What are mirror neurons? Glenn shares a kookie but fascinating video about the brain and tells a lot of stories along the way. Could this video possibly contain the seeds of answers to some of the biggest existential questions we still ask ourselves, even after a faith crisis?

Ep 351 – 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.

Ep 349 – 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.

Ep 342 – 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.
