Ep 472 – Week of Tannehill – The Apostasy

Panel Discussion

Posted April 17th, 2018

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

Panel Discussion

Posted February 5th, 2018

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!

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 429 – Sapiens: The Fiction about Fictions – Part 1

Panel Discussion

Posted December 24th, 2017

Glenn shares a piece of the previously unpublished Sapiens discussion with Heather, Jake, Randy, John Dehlin, and Andrew Evans to talk about the question of fiction.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:
