The New Atheist’s Guide to Not Being a Total Asshole: Episode 2 (Hope)
Sage’s New Atheist’s Guide (N.A.G.) continues with episode 2–a conversation with Bob about hope.
Kids After Mormonism
Happy Father’s Day! In honor of this manliest of holidays, Bob is joined by Scott and Jake to discuss how Mormonism may or may not affect the decision to have kids as well as decisions on how to parent. Also, Heather joins us a little later to add her perspective.
Do you [Jake, Erica, John, Heather, Tom and Bob] take this man or woman to be your awfully wedded whatever, to have and to scold from this day forward; for better or worse, but it sure as hell better be better; for richer, for slightly but not noticeably poorer and even then only until after grad school; forget sickness, only in health; to loathe and to cherish simultaneously; till suspicious death do you part, so help you Zog? Just say “Yes”. Only heathens say, “I do.” Then by the powers vested in us by the Abiding Dude, we now pronounce you married. You may kiss, or roll your eyes at each other. Probably both. After the reception, you may also defile each other clumsily and briefly in the Lord’s anointed way in a suite at The Little America. And that, is how babies are made.
The Book of Mormon Movie Review
An occasional knee-slapping, borderline insightful, completely infantile review the 2003 movie The Book of Mormon Vol 1: The Journey.
The Perpetual Education Fund… Or Fraud?
Randy is joined by Bob and special guest Aaron Tunell to discuss LDS Inc.’s Perpetual Education Fund, a program started in 2001 to help students in developing countries. But all is not as it seems on the surface.
General Conference Apr 2016 – Infant Style

Pride and Humility
The infants are so humbled by the tremendous honor of being the chosen few able to discuss this great and important topic of humility.
John, Bob, Jake, Randy, and Heather tackle these magnanimous questions. Can modesty apply to anything other than shoulder porn? Is the Mormon concept of humility just code for low self-esteem? If humility isn’t a commandment, is it worth cultivating at all? And of course, who is worse: Hitler, Stalin, or Ezra Taft Benson? Or possibly Colonel Sanders. But definitely Benson.
Tom is joined with Bob, Randy and Glenn to finally sit down with Heather to talk about how awesome she is.
Mormonism, Diablo, and Life as a Game
Bob walks us through the parallels between Mormonism and the game Diablo 3. What if Mormonism ultimately is just a role-playing game?
Internet Impact on Mormons
Randy is joined by Bob, Heather, and John to discuss the impact the Internet has had on Mormons and LDS membership growth (among other topics ranging from the evolving outsider view of Mormons to the latest LDS, Inc. retrenchment via its new policy toward gay parents and their children).
