Ep 590 – Seven Years of Infanity

Seven years.  Six Hundred-Fifty-plus episodes.  Six Million-plus downloads.  Four Million-plus listeners.  Let’s pause to celebrate what we have done and listen back to some of the great contributions from Randy, Scott, Bob, Matt, Tom, Glenn, John, Jake, Alison, and Heather.  Enjoy!

Ep 588 – Brigham Young, Blood Atonement, and the True Love of Christ

What do Brigham Young and Charles Manson have in common? All you need is love — AKA shedding a wicked person’s blood so that they can pay for their sins and be exalted in the highest degree of the Celestial Kingdom. Cuz that is what Jesus REALLY meant when he said “love your neighbor as yourself.” It’s right there in the Journal of Discourses. Straight from the mouth of a prophet of God. Take a listen.

Ep 577 – Infant General Conference April 2019

Glenn shares his thoughts on the Ronald E. Poelman talk/talks from 1984 and drops some Infant gen conf goodies from the past

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?
