    99: Conversation with Conversion Therapy Survivor Nathan Winterton

    99: Conversation with Conversion Therapy Survivor Nathan Winterton

    Trigger Warning: in this episode we discuss delicate themes such as conversion therapy, anorexia and suicidal ideation. If these topics are triggering for you, feel free to pause the recording, listen in a supportive environment or skip this one. In the fall of 2019, Nathan Winterton pulled over to the side of the road because he couldn't stop the flow of tears over the news that the LDS church essentially defended the practice of conversion therapy by attempting to prevent the passing of a Utah state law that would make it illegal. That day, Nathan took a selfie that went viral on social media. A year later, he agreed to come on our podcast and talk about it. We feel honored that Nathan so openly shared his experience with all of us. His story is extraordinary.

    98: If Jesus Had Been to Therapy

    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

    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.
