Why Can’t We Be Friends?
UPDATE: When Mormon Stories took this episode down, our site experienced a spike in traffic which caused our website to crash. The only solution was to remove the file. We will re-release the episode in three smaller parts later today.
Do facts matter? Is validation possible when faith conflicts with reason? Is Jeremy Runnells really the leader of the Anti-Mormon religion? What about the Book of Abraham? Book of Mormon Geography? The role of prophets? The Proclamation on the Family? So many tits and tats, but can’t believers and non-believers just get along? Can’t we all be friends?
Glenn and John Hamer join Lindsay Hansen Park and John Dehlin for an Infants on Mormon Stories smackdown of a recorded conversation between Trevor (a doubting Mormon) and an LDS General Authority and an LDS church historian as they attempt to address Trevor’s mounting concerns with Mormon history and doctrine.
Mormon Leaks – Guideline Responses to Common Questions: The Smackdown
Are Mormons Christians? What is the official Mormon response to Abuse? Affinity Fraud? Church Finances? The Clannish nature of Church Members? Dissent? Hard-to-believe Events in Church History? And a dozen other topics? Mormon Leaks’ founder Ryan McKnight joins Glenn, Randy, John, and Matt to smack down the latest leaked document: Guideline Responses to Common Questions.
Oh yeah…. And John’s Ambassador is plenipotent. #Duh!
Is there an echo in here?
Facebook posts. Podcast listeners. Church groups. Political affiliation. Echo chambers are definitely all around us. Glenn, Scott, and Matt each discuss their own thoughts on these Echo Chambers at the Phoenix Sunstone conference. Recorded on Saturday March 11, 2017.
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.

Travel back in time to August 2014 for one of our first smackdown episodes as Jake, Bob, Randy, Scott, and Glenn discuss the then-recent essay on The Book of Abraham from LDS.org.
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.
