Ep 687 – Infant General Conference Oct 2020, Session 1

A life with God is a life without fear.  Even a fear of losing blessings because of drinking coffee, right?

Ep 683 – Truth vs Fiction, Part 2: Who Wrote the Book of Mormon (Joseph Smith?)

What is truth? What is fiction? Was Joseph Smith the sole author of the Book of Mormon? Was it Solomon Spaulding? Glenn and Randy talk with historian John Hamer about Book of Mormon authorship.

IOT 676 – Bob’s Superlative Disorder (Fro Back)

What is the most important thing ever? This is, of course.

Ep 674 – How to Marry a Mormon Part 2 (Fro Back)

Originally published in July 2015, the performs and smacks down Glenn’s goofy screenplay.

Ep 673 – How to Marry a Mormon Part 1 (Fro Back)

Ep 671 – Little Factories (Fro Back)

One of our best episodes ever.  First published in July 2014, this may be the very first word-for-word, pick-it-apart Infant Smackdown.

In 1976, our favorite LDS Apostle, Boyd K. Packer gave a talk in priesthood session “To Young Men Only” that was not subsequently published in the Ensign the following month, nor can it be found as a conference talk on LDS.org today. It was turned into a pamphlet in 1981 “To Young Men Only” and that text is available on LDS.org but the audio and video are not on the official website of the LDS church.

But we Infants found an audio copy. And in this episode, Glenn, Tom, Matt, and Jake dissect it as it has never been dissected before. Hold on to your little factories, cuz this is gonna be a good one.

Ep 628 – Week of Tannehill – Noah’s Ark and the Intentional Literalist

The last frock in the Week of Tannehill series, this was originally published in March 2014.  Mike Tannehill joins us once again for this unofficial follow-up to The Unintentional Racist to discuss the recent LDS.com essay on Noah’s Ark with Randy, Scott, Jake, Erica, and Glenn.
Here is the link to the Meridian article in defense of Noah’s Ark.
And here is the LDS.org essay Noah.

Ep 626 – Week of Tannehill – The Devil

Bob, Jake, Glenn, and Matt talk to Mike Tannehill about the devil — and evil – and his whole devilish role in the Plan of Salvation — and a whole bunch of other stuff.  This episode was originally published in Oct 2014.

Ep 624 – Week of Tannehill – The Apostasy

Glenn takes you back to the 4th episode of Infants on Thrones, originally published in September 2012.  It is a surprisingly good Radio Lab styled episode, centering on the narrative structure of “loss and restoration” found both in and out of the Mormon church.  Mike Tannehill also provides some criteria by which one may determine if a church is in apostasy.  (Be careful Mike.  This was recorded pre-essays on LDS.com, buddy!)

Ep 615 – Excommunication the Musical: Five Years Later

A blast from the past semi-musical, semi-dramatic recreation of John Dehlin’s pre-excommunication interview featuring Jake Frost, Matt Long, John Hamer and Glenn Ostlund. Enjoy.
