Showing "Glenn"Show all episodes
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.

Evaluating Evidence: Trump Dossier Ep. 3 – Let the Smackdown Begin
Scott, Matt, and Glenn begin reading from the Trump Dossier. You know… Infant Smackdown style. The text is linked below if you want to read along. And don’t skip the easter egg at the end of this episode. Unless you just really really want to.
Evaluating Evidence: Trump Dossier Ep. 2 – Infants Disclaimer
What is “fake news?” Scott, Matt, Jake, Bob and Glenn discuss whether or not evaluating the Trump Dossier is a good idea. Let us know your opinions on the website.
Infants, Immigration, and Captain EO

Disciples After Dark: Aunt Wendy and the Worldly Sex
What happens when parody meets smackdown? This.
Matt and Kristin and Glenn (and a special guest or two) take some time to delicately mock and smackdown the Jan 8 2017 World Wide Devotional for Young Adults. Because the devil wants to ruin you all with empty lust-filled worldly sex (but thinking that everyone else in the entire world is being deceived by Satan and you and your fellow church members are the only righteous people chosen of God is totally fine. In fact it is encouraged.)
And a previously recorded Jake and Heather join in for a nice recycled song.
The Alarming Truth Behind Anti-Mormonism: The Smackdown
Glenn, Matt, and Scott smack down a blog post because many of you asked us to. So we did. In front of about 50 lovely listeners. And now the rest of you can hear it. This episode was recorded January 8, 2017.
