If the little angel and devil from your shoulders ever hung out without you and made a podcast, this is probably what it would sound like. Equal parts wholesome and horrific, Mormon and the Meth-head is about one unlikely friendship. Jessa and Aaron have led two completely different lives. While Aaron was stopping strangers on the streets of Milan to teach them about Joseph Smith, Jessa was teaching dudes how to keister meth while blowing them in Arby's bathrooms across Portland. But as Aaron lets go of his strict Mormon lifestyle and begins his descent into the depravity of the secular world, Jessa acts as his ferryman, telling him about disgusting, hedonistic things he never could have imagined, like "butt stuff" and "coffee." And Aaron returns the favor, helping Jessa navigate new and foreign social situations like "accepting hugs from loved ones" and "having loved ones." In their respective routines, they each tackle the topics of love, sex, drugs, and alcohol, but with polar opposite perspectives. Audiences get to see their world through Aaron's naive, innocent eyes as well as through Jessa's bleary, bloodshot ones.

To Aaron

I just recently found this podcast. I’m from Cardston Alberta. The mini Utah of southern Alberta. Served a mission in Sacramento CA.
While I was on my mission I searched for my doctrine that wasn’t typically taught in Sunday school. That opened up so many questions.
Like men acan be sealed to more than one woman in the next life. But women cant be sealed to more than one man?
So is polygamy actually a “deep” doctrine in Mormonism that was done a way with only because of state laws??
I’m not for polygamy. But each to their own lol I don’t judge.
I just listened to the podcast The devil is a lie. I can’t tell you how much I appreciate someone having the same questions as me! I remember having a lesson about the war in heaven and what not and being like so what did Satan do wrong?? Have an idea and get banished from gods presence? Seems harsh but whatever. But then he (God) needed Satan to rebel? Sounds like entrapment?
Love your podcast so far. I appreciate not “being/feeling” alone for having these doubts and questions that I can’t ask any one else because they could blah blah blah you know lol.
