Ep 561 – The Meaning of Life, P1

Ep 560 – Christa Pehl Evans and the Mom-Shaming Post that Went Viral

A few weeks ago, Christa posted on Facebook about a very unfortunate experience she had with a Judge while being selected to Jury Duty. The post went viral, and she is back on IOT to tell the story, and to talk about the implications of that experience as viewed through the lens of American history, and popular culture, and sociateal values, and science, and woo, and all kinds of yummy stuff.

Ep 553 – The Ex’d Files: Bill Reel’s Excommunication – The Morning After

Bill Reel talks to Glenn and Tom about what it was like to be excommunicated last night in St. George, Utah. He also teases some things that might be coming next. Will we get another Excommunication sing-a-long from this? Stay tuned…

Ep 549 – Dr. Weird Science and the Woonderful Woorld of Woo

Once upon a time, a Mormon scientist worked at the Pentagon. They nicknamed him Dr. Weird Science. He was later stationed in Japan for the US Air Force, where he investigated and invested in the most cutting edge scientific research in Asia. He listened to a recent episode of Infants on Thrones. He has a thing or two to say about the line between science and woo. He is Dave Sonntag, and today he and Chelsea Shields join Glenn to talk a little more about the Mormon (and post-Mormon) cultural attraction towards woo.

Ep 536 – Chelsea Shields and the Biology of Connection

Do beliefs impact our biology? What about a rejection of those beliefs? Glenn sits down with Chelsea to talk about belief, culture, social media, the Mormon “cult” (her word, not mine), and both the social and biological costs of walking away from your “tribe.”

Ep 535 – Disney Songs for Kids of Gay Sinning Sinners (and Jeremy Goff)

It’s been three years. And this episode just dropped off iTunes. So it’s time to put it back where it belongs. And you also get a bonus smackdown of Jeremy Goff. More like that on Patreon.

Ep 534 – The Psychological Impact of Mormonism

Glenn and Tom sit down with licensed Psychologist Colton Miller to discuss the psychological impact of Mormonism.

Ep 533 – Response to the Open Letter to John Dehlin Smackdown

The Mormon Church is the real enemy!

Wait, no… John Dehlin is the real enemy!

Wait, no… Infants on Thrones is the real enemy!

Wait, no… it’s patriarchy, Trump, liberals, conservatives, academics, the police, fundamentalists, atheists, Jordan Peterson, straw users (and the beat goes on…)

Glenn shares his response to the recent “Open Letter to John Dehlin Smackdown” episode, and clarifies who (or what) he sees as the “real enemy” and explains why he still enjoys making these podcast episodes and where he hopes this podcast will go into the future.
