268 - Dan's First Formal Debate - Recap

10/11/2019
More
Matt is still in the UK, so Dan & Ryan sit down to talk about Dan's first formal debate. Debating presuppositionalists is an adventure in frustration, and there are a lot of things Dan learned which can be improved moving forward, but it went fairly well. We'll be releasing the audio of the debate as a standalone episode, but you can also find the video on YouTube at this link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rTwhmUXdab0 *~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~* Friend of the show and...

267 - Difficult Conversations

10/4/2019
More
Dan & Ryan talk about having some difficult conversations and cover a few stories related to religion & politics while Matt is carrying out his secret mission… uh, sorry… his vacation across the pond. *~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~* Friend of the show and all-around great person, Brandy Hamrick was, unfortunately, recently diagnosed with cancer. She had to have a large section of her colon removed, got a stoma, and also had a port installed for chemotherapy as she continues her...

266 - Hocus Don't Pocus

9/27/2019
More
We know it's hard to believe, but some religious people actually believe that Harry Potter spells will summon demons. What's worse is that some of those people occupy school board seats. *~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~* Friend of the show and all-around great person, Brandy Hamrick was, unfortunately, recently diagnosed with cancer. She had to have a large section of her colon removed, got a stoma, and also had a port installed for chemotherapy as she continues her treatment plan. We...

265 - Hell Yes We'll Take Your AR-15

9/20/2019
More
Sorry for the delay in getting this out to you! Dan's planning & strategy meeting with Dr. Clark for our upcoming debate ran quite a bit longer than expected and pushed editing back a day. Ryan was out having fun (we assume), but Matt & Dan were in studio to rage and laugh at Ted Cruz, Anne Graham Lotz, POTUS, and Todd Starnes. We also offered high praise for Beto O'Rourke's comment on guns during the most recent Democratic debate. Friend of the show and all-around great person, Brandy...

264 - Christine Stenquist

9/13/2019
More
We were delighted to have Christine Stenquist sit down with us in-studio. She is the founder and Executive Director for TRUCE (Together for Responsible Use and Cannabis Education) and has been a tireless advocate for the medicinal use of cannabis in Utah. Christine is also the person most responsible for the passage of Proposition 2 last year, but the fight isn't over; Utah's legislators, under pressure from the LDS Church, have been working to water-down the proposition to the point of...

263 - Fuck Cancer

9/6/2019
More
We're back from our (longer than expected) break! Dan screwed up and forgot to bring the audio he and Matt recorded with him to Puerto Vallarta, so he wasn't able to edit it and get a show out last week, but that audio is included in this episode. It might be a bit confusing, but it is what it is. Friend of the show and all-around great person, Brandy Hamrick was, unfortunately, recently diagnosed with cancer. She had to have a large section of her colon removed, got a stoma, and also had...

262 - Keep Your Private Sector to Yourself

8/21/2019
More
Republicans (and some Democrats) have done a great job of convincing a lot of people that privatization is the answer to a lot of America's problems, but they haven't adequately explained how privatizing things like prisons or our healthcare system actually provide a benefit for anyone except the fatcats at the top of the corporate food chain. In this episode we learn that Ryan hates mayonnaise, boiled eggs, and vegetables, Ed Smart announces that he is gay, the Chrisley family has been...

261 - Nico Gonzalez

8/14/2019
More
Nico Gonzalez is a former Jehovah's Witness and is the content creator for the "Conversations with God" podcast. He's also a newly-minted atheist within the last year. He joined us via Skype to talk about his faith transition and the upcoming release of his own podcast where he'll be exploring the answer to the question of "What would you do if you were God?" We also cover the puzzling case of what to think about Boris Johnson, a poisonous snake escaped from the Bronx Zoo, Dan & Tracey's...

260 - I Wrote the Damn Bill!

8/7/2019
More
Listener Basilis sent us a couple news items about a Bishop in Cyprus who thinks homsexuality is caused by pregnant women having anal sex. From there, we move on to our hopes and theories about the impeachment process before ending the show with Trump questioning Fox News' loyalty, and Marco Rubio & Rick Santorum advocating for theocracy in the United States. Patreon supporters get early access to the show, bonus episodes, clips from the cutting room floor, and extended editions of the...

259 - Conversations with God

7/31/2019
More
If you're in the market for a brilliant podcast which features the dulcet tones of a British expat who now lives in Australia and records his conversations with an invisible sky wizard who is worshiped by the majority of our planet's inhabitants, boy howdy do we have some great news for you! Tony, the host (co-host, technically...?) of the Conversations with God Podcast, joined us for an interview to talk about the impetus for starting the show. He was also kind enough to put us in...

258 - Tyson McCauley

7/24/2019
More
Tyson McCauley (A.K.A. Captain Samples) is a former Mormon and a Patreon supporter of the show. He joined us in-studio to talk about leaving the LDS Church and coming out as gay. He has also recently started identifying as an atheist. We had a great time chatting with him, and we're sure you're going to have an equally grand time listening to the discussion! We've also got a mini "What Matters" segment this week toward the end of the show! Patreon supporters get nearly 30 extra minutes...

257 - Bring 'Em Young

7/17/2019
More
With its history of sexual predation by those in positions of power, it seems like a really bad idea for the LDS Church to lower the age of children who are "interviewed" by their local Bishop. But, based on a new survey they've sent to members, it looks like that's exactly what they plan to do. Our Patreon patrons get a peek behind the curtain this week while we talk to the host of the Conversations with God podcast to set up his appearance on an upcoming show. Patreon subscribers get...

256 - Nukes for Everybody!

7/10/2019
More
Dan is a bit short on time this week, so the show notes are a bit sparse, but you know the drill - we cover a lot of news and clips this week, along with a correction thanks to some listener feedback. There's also a special shoutout for one of our favorite supporters and collaborators - someone we're truly happy to call a friend. Patreon subscribers get early access to the show, bonus episodes, clips from the cutting room floor, and extended editions of the show! You can find the...

255 - Democratic Debate 2

7/3/2019
More
We weren't planning to cover the debate, but we were recording while it was on & we all wanted to watch it, so we decided we might as well watch it with all of you! Biden's performance was abysmal, and we're fine with that. The sooner he can get knocked off the stage, the better. Kamala Harris had a very strong showing, as did Pete Buttigieg, Bernie Sanders, Kirsten Gillibrand, and even Michael Bennet. Eric Swalwell and Marianne Williamson will (hopefully) be dropping out after the next...

254 - Those Poor Persecuted Christians

6/26/2019

Join Dan & Ryan while they catch up for a bit before diving headfirst into the ridiculousness that is Christians who feel they are being persecuted for their ridiculous beliefs. Patreon subscribers get early access to the show, bonus episodes, clips from the cutting room floor, and extended editions of the show!

253 - Mike Norton on McKenna Denson

6/19/2019
More
Mike Norton (A.K.A. NewNameNoah) joined us via Skype for an extensive discussion about the hullabaloo surrounding McKenna Denson. For those who are unfamiliar with McKenna Denson, she made national headlines early last year when she came forward with allegations that Joseph Bishop sexually assaulted and/or raped her in the basement of the LDS Missionary Training Center in Provo, Utah decades ago while he was serving as head of the MTC. There have been many twists and turns to this story,...

251 - Religious Conformity

6/5/2019
More
What makes people conform to the religious practices around them even when they're not a member of the religion in question? Is it simply a result of trying to be polite? We're not quite sure, but it's definitely something we've noticed. Patreon subscribers get early access to the show, bonus episodes, clips from the cutting room floor, and extended editions of the show!

250 - Does Glyphosate Cause Cancer?

5/29/2019
More
Glyphosate and Roundup have been in the news quite a bit lately, so we decided to revisit the subject of herbicides, pesticides, biotech, genetic engineering... basically all things GMO to help you better understand and navigate your way through a world full of misinformation. We also talk about the Mueller investigation, Attorney General William Barr, what happened to last week's episode, and how Ryan redeemed himself by saving our lives while recording this episode.

249 - Growing up Lesbian and Mormon with Katelyn & Callie (rebroadcast)

5/22/2019
More
Due to some technical difficulties we're sure to address in the next episode (you can start blaming Ryan right now), this week's episode is a rebroadcast of our interview with Callie and Katelyn, a married lesbian couple and two of Dan's closest friends. Our conversation centers around the difficulties Katelyn faced growing up as a devout member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (you know - the Mormons). This episode is a good fit for rebroadcast this week because Pride...
