Ep 457 – Matt’s NEW PPI – Part 1
What is it like recognizing that you were part of a cult and are now playing for the other team? No, I’m not taking about religion. I’m talking about Matt’s experience as a sex crimes prosecutor and now as a criminal defense attorney. Big things are brewing in Matt’s Long’s world. You will be hearing about them soon enough, but for now, let’s catch up with Matt in a new and improved Personal Priesthood Interview (PPI).
Ep 456 – Anthology of Awesomeness
What happens when you mix 14 listener essays with some of the best creative clips from past episodes of Infants on Thrones? Whatever it is, I hope it makes you feel the way I am feeling about it right now. Check it out for yourself.
Ep 441 – Of Weeds and Bats and Unicorns, P2
Glenn, Heather, Jake, and Erica conclude their discussion about the fascinating story of Josh and Lolly Weed, the faithful LDS mixed orientation couple (she’s straight, he’s gay) who announced very publicly five years ago that they were going to make this thing work, dammit! And then announced last week that they are now getting a divorce — along with a number of other fascinating admissions.
Wow — another episode of Infants on Thrones that actually talks about mostly-Mormon-stuff almost pretty much the entire time. We’re Bat-men!
Ep 440 – Of Weeds and Bats and Unicorns, P1
Glenn, Heather, Jake, and Erica discuss the fascinating story of Josh and Lolly Weed, the faithful LDS mixed orientation couple (she’s straight, he’s gay) who announced very publicly five years ago that they were going to make this thing work, dammit! And then announced last week that they are now getting a divorce — along with a number of other fascinating admissions.
Wow — an episode of Infants on Thrones that actually talks about sorta-Mormon-stuff the entire time. A unicorn sighting indeed!
Ep 439 – The Luminous Brain
Glenn interviews Dr. Michael Ferguson for this debut episode of Michael’s new podcast, The Luminous Brain.
Ep 437 – Spiral Dynamics (Infant Stylz)
Glenn joins forces with John Dehlin, Gina Colvin, Lindsay Hansen Park, and Jamie Hanis-Handy to discuss Spiral Dynamics, a data-based, psychological theory of how human consciousness adapts and changes. Spiral Dynamics can help us better understand the way we view religion and the way we view the world.
This is a slight different version of the conversation that is being cross-published on Mormon Stories and A Thoughtful Faith. Cuz this one was edited Infant Stylz.
Ep 436 – The Religion of Science? – Part 2
Randy, Glenn, John, Lindsay, and Matt conclude their discussion of Rupert Sheldrake’s 2012 “Banned Ted Talk” about the 10 dogmas of a Scientific Materialist Worldview.
Ep 435 – The Religion of Science? – Part 1
What does it mean to be open-minded vs. closed-minded? We experienced some kind of “open vs. closed” clash of ideologies when we challenged and deconstructed the dogmas of Mormonism, right? So what do we do with that now? And what about the accusations that some of us simply substituted the cultural dogmas of Mormonism for the cultural dogmas of Science?
Listen in as Randy totally keeps his cool (eh hem…) while joining Glenn, John, Lindsay, and Matt in a discussion of Rupert Sheldrake’s 2012 “Banned Ted Talk” about the 10 dogmas of a Scientific Materialist Worldview. And don’t miss the special easter egg parody about the press conference announcing the new LDS Prophet at the end.
Ep 434 – The REAL Antichrist
Glenn has figured out who the actual anti-christ is and what “anti-christ” actually means. And it’s not what you think! Unless, of course, it is. It’s really hard to tell being as obnoxiously cryptic as I am being. Just listen. You’ll like this one. I promise.
Ep 431 – Sapiens: More Fiction about Fictions – Part 2
Could a scientific mythology could bring balance to the force and peace & harmony to the galaxy? Listen in to Part 2 of this panel discussion of the book Sapiens with some responses to listener comments about “fiction” and “myth.”
