Ep 525 – Culture vs. Doctrine
What is the difference between Mormon culture and “the gospel?” You don’t have to be anti-mormon-crusader-extraordinaire Jeremy Goff or privately censured General Authority Ronald E. Poelman to see there is a distinction between the culture and the gospel. Unless of course you remove the biasing blinders from your eyes and finally see that there really is no distinction at all. Listen in as Glenn smacks down another goofy video from Jeremy Goff and revisits the Elder Poelman 1984 kerfuffle. This episode will change the way you eat green jello!
Ep 524 – Believing Parents

Matt and his wife Kristin talk to Tom about the difficulty of connecting and communicating with our believing parents and share a recent example of a challenging but incredibly rewarding act of love.
