Ep 497 – Contest Winners and (sorta) “Best Of” Minisodes of Yore

Glenn announces the winners of the May 2018 Listener Essay contest and then breathes new life into six fantastic Infant minisodes of the past.

Ep 476 – 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 474 – Week of Tannehill – The Devil

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

Ep 472 – 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 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 432 – #NotMyProphet

LDS Prophet Thomas S. Monson recently passed away. Bob, Jake, Heather and Tom get on to discuss his passing.

 

And according to Bob, he wasn’t no Gordon B. Hinckley… #NotMyProphet

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.”

A source about the common characteristics of mythology:

Ep 429 – Sapiens: The Fiction about Fictions – Part 1

Glenn shares a piece of the previously unpublished Sapiens discussion with Heather, Jake, Randy, John Dehlin, and Andrew Evans to talk about the question of fiction. What is a fiction? What is a myth? How does the Mormon “War in Heaven” story function in Mormon culture? How does the “Big Bang” story function in secular culture? Are they both fictions? Are they both myths? Listen in as the Infants discuss, and then weigh in yourself on the debate by filling out the following brief survey:

Ep 421 – Masculine Manly Men: The Smackdown – Part 2

Mass shootings. Sexual assault. Why do men keep doing horrible things? Glenn, Matt, Jake, Lindsay, and Paige conclude their smack around of the article “Thoughts on Vegas, and Why Men Keep Doing This” by author Charlie Hoehn.
