98: If Jesus Had Been to Therapy
Fair warning: this week we get a bit sacrilegious and come to the conclusion that 2,000 years may not actually be enough time to process trauma, so you take your time Jesus. Annnnnd...we're back in the temple for the LAST TIME!! Bye bye LDS temple. Try not to let the door hit ya where HF split ya! We also, want to give a special thank you to Pirate God for their contribution to the temple episodes. Pirate God is a non-binary being and requests they/them pronouns. They thank you.

95: Mary & Diana on Family: When Less is More
This week Diana keeps "Shelly's seat warm" and picks up the guest hosting slot. I stump her on a FUMPOTD courtesy of Bryce Blankenagel of the Naked Mormonism podcast. She and I also discuss family relationships and boundary setting, as well as attempts to fill the "bottomless well" of affirmation needs. It's a good one, so please give a listen on your favorite podcast app.Music provided by Purple Planet: https://purple-planet.com.

94: So Long Lucifer
Sooo....Shelly lied. We are actually back in the temple today for Lucifer's farewell speech. It's a classic. Shelly also dons a hideous temple outfit sent in by a listener (robe, apron, sash, veil). We also read an inspiring letter, and hear how some more LDL'ers got into our discussion group on Facebook. Music provided by Purple Planet: https://purple-planet.com.

93: Lucifer's New Name
We are STILL in the stupid temple. Seriously so dumb. Pirate God pays us a visit there...in fact, you may actually find yourself thinking, "will someone please make Pirate God shut up???" We also discover what more folks said to "get into the group," and this episode wouldn't be complete without another triggering entry from Shelly's creepy 1990's journal.

92: Little White Bible
Yup, this week we get up close and personal with the Mormon Missionary handbook. So ditch those toe rings and break out a ruler cuz those sideburns are looking a little shaggy. We also find out what more listeners said to get into the group, and learn about Lucifer's ATM machine. Join us!!Music provided by Purple Planet: https://purple-planet.com.

91: Non-Repulsive Greasy Sneezes
Could today's title have something to do with a new Mormon Mad Lib??? Bow your head and say yes (cuz it has something to do with the temple too). We also read a few short letters and debut a brand-new segment that features creative responses from some of our badass listeners!!! Music provided by Purple Planet: https://purple-planet.com.

90: Adam Plays the Blame Game
This week we get to listen to Adam pull some really dick moves. But before that we read a few short letters, hear a listener's Journal Journey and Shelly reads a slam poem that's pretty slammin' (couldn't resist). Please join us!Music provided by Purple Planet: https://purple-planet.com.

89: Welcome to the Stage: Lucifer!
Yup, we're back in the temple with Eden's most dramatic thespian: Lucifer! Get ready to give Shelly your biggest golf clap for her amazing adversary impression. We also read a wild letter (buckle up) and pirate god even makes an appearance. Or perhaps we should say, "Even...Pirate God." Enjoy!Music provided by Purple Planet: https://purple-planet.com.

88: Pirate God, A.K.A. the F-Bomb Episode
We're back in the temple once again for the start of the riveting endowment movie, which turns out to pretty much be the regular ol' creation story with a bit of poetic license. We also roast a troll, talk like a pirate and Shelly stumps Mary on this week's FUMPOTD. Join us!Music provided by Purple Planet: https://purple-planet.com.

87: Check Out My Endowment
This week we're still in the wacky LDS temple. If new names and endowment ceremonies are your thing (whatever those are) then you're in for a treat. There's also a FUMPOTD that Mary nails for a change. So pop a mint and get comfortable - we're going to the temple!Music provided by Purple Planet: https://purple-planet.com

86: Temple Pt 2: Get Your Hands Out of My Poncho
In this week's episode Mary learns about more mid 1990s Mormon Temple creepiness, er, rituals, this time involving inappropriate touching. Plus, we're also horrified to find out what Hitler is promised in his afterlife. There's also a FUMPOTD, and we want to remind listeners about clean and explicit "call of the day" ringtones for all Patrons and Marco Polo Channels members!Music provided by Purple Planet: https://purple-planet.com.

85: Hitler Becomes a Mormon & Other LDS Temple Wackiness
We're finally FINALLY getting around to discussing LDS temple rituals. These are neither sacred nor secret since Shelly's spilling the beans on this goofy stuff. This will be part 1 of a multi-part series. We also have a great FUMPOTD and an inspiring letter to read. Please join us!Music provided by Purple Planet: https://purple-planet.com.

84: Patriarchal Blessing B.S.
In today's episode we get up close and personal with the cut and pasted splendor that is the Mormon Patriarchal Blessing. Is everyone throwing up in their mouths? Because that's the appropriate response. We kick things off with our good friend and Mormon history buff, Bryce Blankenagel. We also roast a troll or two, and stump Shelly with a FUMPOTD, courtesy, once again of Mr. Blankenagel. Bryce, are your ears burning? They should be.

83: COVID Couples Counseling Part Deux
Looks like we needed to head back to the counseling couch this week for another session of "therapy without a therapist." Maybe don't try that at home. We also have a FUMPOTD courtesy of Alice, a "He Said What" that's particularly douchey and a letter from Cole that we think you'll find inspirational. It's a good time, y'all, so please join us!Music provided by Purple Planet: https://purple-planet.com.

82: The Newly-Les Game!
Welcome to the first (and probably only) installment of the Newly-Les Game hosted by our good friend Diana! We'd like to say we crushed this game...we really would...but it soon turned into a total shit show. We discovered that Shelly is a hopeless romantic and that Mary doesn't understand what junk food is for some reason. We also have a super intellectual and cringey FUMPOTD from Bryce Blankenagel that Shelly would like to announce to everyone that she won (for a change). So be informed of this miraculous victory, and please join us!Music provided by Purple Planet: https://purple-planet.com.

81: Mary Gets Vulnerable About Kids
In this episode Mary gives Shelly a break and takes over the planning. She quizzes her on a FUMPOTD (thanks Bryce Blankenagel) and comes up with an evangelical mad lib. Also Sister Fanny Fact-Check pays a visit with another installment of "Deep Dives into Dire Doctrine." This one's chock full, so please join us!

80: Suicide Safety and Prevention with Kimberly Anderson, MFA, MA, AMFT
After receiving an email from a listener who let us know that her girlfriend (also a listener) had recently died by suicide, we felt that we wanted to bring on therapist and friend, Kimberly Anderson, to help us navigate this topic. So this episode is dedicated to Charly. If someone you care about is contemplating suicide, please reference the links below for help.
