Episode 124: The Finale
We've finally come to the end of the road! For our final episode, we share some reasons why we started the podcast, where we are on our faith journeys, and what our hopes are for the future of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. More than anything, we hope you all remember that your faith journey is your own, your relationship with deity is your own, and you will always be on the right path as long as you are the one making decisions for your life. Thank you for being with us for three years and three seasons. We love you! Now go on out there and smash the patriarchy with the spirit and a smile.

Episode 118: Under the Banner of Heaven
We're sure you heard all about the drama mini series on Hulu about a family murder in 1984 that had wild connections to the FLDS church. Some of you may have heard about this series and thought, "I don't want to know anything about it because the FLDS church and the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints are not the same thing!" Well, you'd be surprised to learn that it's all connected. Join us as we review the mini series based on the book "Under the Banner of Heaven: A Story of Violent Faith" by Jon Krakauer.

Episode 116: Individualism vs. Collectivism
In keeping up with our "July 4th" theme from last week, we're talking about American independence vs. the community mindset of the LDS Church.

Join us as we investigate these two paradigms further and learn how they both impact communities and the LDS church culture at large.

Episode 113: MLMs
When Brigham Young set eyes on the Salt Lake Valley and said, "This is the place," was he referring to a place for Zion or a place for MLMs as far as the eye could see? We're sure it's the former, but this week we're talking about the latter--MLMs that is! Join us as we discuss what they are, how some have become insanely popular and how most are ultimately bad.

Episode 109: The Concept of Satan
As Christians, we're constantly taught to avoid the appearance of evil, temptation, and to be wary of "wolves in sheep's clothing." Lessons about Satan, the Devil, Lucifer, etc. always were black and white. He's bad, Jesus is good, no in-between. But what do we actually know about him? Is Satan his name, or a title? Will he ever change? What about those that follow him? This week, we're discussing the concept of Satan, where he came from, what his future looks like, and how he's depicted in the scriptures and media.
