Wow! A middle ground, nuanced metaphorical view that’s clearly articulated

I loved this. An empathetic, open minded, intellectually robust deep dive into navigating post-deconstruction Mormonism. Where just hiding on the back row biding my time for the sake of my TBM family is NOT the name of the game.

Picture the positive vibes you’d get if you just happened to win Mormon leadership roulette lottery and were having a deep conversation with the coolest bishop on the planet who totally agrees with you about the book of Abraham, etc and is diving into the weeds with you about your best path forward.

Episode 12 is fire!

Thank you!

I loved the episode on The Book of Mormon translation. I’m trying to understand why our very faithful son left the Church without actually reading the CES Letter (which he told me not to do) and your podcast has been so helpful. This was the best episode so far. I’m excited to listen to the rest. Thank you for doing this!

Loved hearing this perspective. Thank you!

Really enjoyed hearing this perspective. What a great way to bridge the gap between our wonderful friends and family who believe differently in our faith.
