Froback Friday – Little Factories

Smackdown

Posted April 21st, 2017

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.

Minisode

Historian extraordinaire John Hamer rains credibility all over the Infants by Hamsplaining the origin of Good Friday.  With tongue firmly in cheek, of course (aka “Infant Style”)

Infant General Conferences of Yore

Posted April 7th, 2017

Is this episode filled with new material or recycled Fro-back Friday material? With General Conference, it’s nearly impossible to tell. Regardless, this is chalk full of some of the best stuff we have ever done. Love it as we do. Amen.

The Mormon Testimony Bearing Phenomenon

Panel Discussion

Posted April 2nd, 2017

Join Randy, his brother Jimmy, and Heather as they have a Hamerless discussion about how bearing your testimony colors the entire Mormon experience from the innocent days of being a Sunbeam toddler to the greatest of us in the highest reaches of leadership in Zion.  I’d like to testify to you that I know you will enjoy this episode.  In the name of optimism and narcissism, Amen.

Froback Friday – Morality, Blame, and a Mormon Family’s Divorce

Interview

Posted March 31st, 2017

Does shared morality bind and blind? If so, what does it blind us to? Glenn revisits a 7-year-old Mormon Stories episode he recorded in April 2010 with his divorced parents, his two siblings, and the ever-inquisitive John Dehlin. But this time, Glenn looks at it through the eyes of Jonathan Haidt’s Moral Foundations Theory because the Moral Foundations Theory has been totally rocking Glenn’s world lately. Maybe it will rock yours, too.

Why Can’t We Be Friends?

Smackdown

Posted March 27th, 2017

UPDATE: When Mormon Stories took this episode down, our site experienced a spike in traffic which caused our website to crash. The only solution was to remove the file. We will re-release the episode in three smaller parts later today.

Do facts matter? Is validation possible when faith conflicts with reason? Is Jeremy Runnells really the leader of the Anti-Mormon religion? What about the Book of Abraham? Book of Mormon Geography? The role of prophets? The Proclamation on the Family? So many tits and tats, but can’t believers and non-believers just get along? Can’t we all be friends?

Glenn and John Hamer join Lindsay Hansen Park and John Dehlin for an Infants on Mormon Stories smackdown of a recorded conversation between Trevor (a doubting Mormon) and an LDS General Authority and an LDS church historian as they attempt to address Trevor’s mounting concerns with Mormon history and doctrine.
