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

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

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 627 – Week of Tannehill – The Unintentional Racist

Mike Tannehill (love him or hate him) is fighting the good fight against the Mormon church. Or at least against the influence of those liberal academic types trying to re-write church history — more specifically those authors of the recent essay Race and the Priesthood on LDS.org who would have us believe that church doctrine is nothing more than the “theories” of racist men influenced by a racist time who simply could not call down a revelation from God until 1978. Listen in as Mike explains how he remains True to the Faith. When the enemy assaileth, shall he shirk or shun the fight? NO!!!

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 622 – Don’t Eff with Cats – A Discussion on the Problem (or Conundrum) of Evil, Victims, Villains, Strangers & Observers

Tom, Randy, and Matt break down and discuss what a Netflix docu-series about sex, murder, and cats teaches about humanity and the problem of evil.

Ep 619 – The Ghosts of April Fools Past

Two missionary stories.  One totally true.  The other mostly true.  Both incredibly foolish.  Enjoy.

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.

Ep 609 – Saturday’s Warrior: Sing-a-long Smackdown

Mormon doctrine set to music.  A throwback episode to March 2015.  Enjoy!
