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!!!
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!)
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.
Two missionary stories. One totally true. The other mostly true. Both incredibly foolish. Enjoy.
Another blast from the past. All four of the Church House Rock parodies together in one episode. Enjoy,
Mormon doctrine set to music. A throwback episode to March 2015. Enjoy!
What is Guilt? What is Shame? What is Empathy? How do all of these things affect us? It’s time to evaluate where we stand. This episode includes 30 min of new material and a throwback to IOT’s 2nd episode: Guilt, a panel discussion between Tom, Randy, Bob, Matt, and Glenn that was originally published on Aug 30, 2012.

Glenn reads (and responds to) a Jeremy Goff blog post about why people leave THE CHURCH OF JESUS CHRIST OF LATTER-DAY SAINTS, and then revisits a classic Infants’ panel discussion “50 Ways To Leave the Church” with Tom, Randy, Jake, and John. Enjoy.
