Ep 568 – Making Space for Me in a Hostile World, P2

This is part 2 of my conversation with Tami.

Here is a link to Tami’s book:

Ep 567 – Making Space for Me in a Hostile World, P1

How can you hold on to those things that are most important while discarding the things that harm you? Today Glenn sits down with long time friend Tami Whiting to discuss her INCREDIBLE book “Making Space for Me.” Tami lived a very rough life, found community in unexpected places, and then eventually had to walk away. That description does not do her story justice. You just have to hear it to believe it.

Ep 566 – The Truth of Lies and Consciousness and Hallucinating Reality

Today Glenn is joined by Brady, Tom, and a small gaggle of live virtual audience members to discuss the intersection between Plato’s idea of “The Lie of the Soul,” Anil Seth’s TED Talk on the way our brains hallucinate reality, and video blogger Matt Christiansen’s response to the recent outrage in Washington DC over a confrontation between native American protestors and Catholic high school kids. It’s a big one! Enjoy.

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 564 – The Meaning of Life: Brady Bluhm, P2

In part two, Brady explains how he rediscovered and redefined “God.” Is suffering really the best teacher? What is the difference between Lying and Lies?
This 2-part interview with Brady is the 2nd installment of IOT’s ongoing “Meaning of Life” series. Enjoy!

Ep 563 – The Meaning of Life: Brady Bluhm, P1

He was the voice of Christopher Robin from the Winnie the Pooh movies, the blind kid from Dumb and Dumber, and a devoted believing Mormon. Now that is all in the past. What is in the “NOW” is a very interesting and profound view on The Meaning of Life. This 2-part interview with Brady is the 2nd installment of IOT’s ongoing “Meaning of Life” series. Enjoy!

Ep 562 – Temple Ch-Cha-Changes

Glenn sits down with Eric (aka “Weird Alma”) to discuss his new parody song “Temple Changes” in response to (duh) the recent LDS temple changes by the recent ex-Mormon church.

Ep 561 – The Meaning of Life, P1

Glenn and Matt are joined by Colton and Brad to talk about the meaning of life.

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.
