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

Review

Posted November 30th, 2017

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?

This episode was produced as a video podcast first. You will get more out of it watching than you will listening. You can watch the video here:

Ep 342 – Girls Gone Thrones

Panel Discussion

Posted February 12th, 2017

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.
