Hosts Mary & Shelly tackle religious trauma and later-in-life LGBTQ issues while laughing their asses off on a weekly podcast.

    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.

    94: So Long Lucifer

    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.

    93: Lucifer's New Name

    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. Join us!

    92: Little White Bible

    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!!

    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!!!

    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!

Suicide Precautions

Thank you so much for the July 30, 2020 episode on suicide and real specific “ nuts and bolts” steps that people who experience suicidal thoughts and feelings can take. I loved the matter of fact way that the presenter went through the information...beautifully normalizing the whole topic. The whole episode was truly a valuable gift for anyone who experiences episode of acute depression and suicidal feelings and also for the friends and family who love the person.
As a family member of someone who did commit suicide, this information is something I will be passing on to the children he left behind.

From a privileged, hetero, white male!

Former member here for 47 years or so (still officially on the books I guess). RM, thousands in tithing, 5 kids, married in the temple (1988 - now THAT’S messed up). I now know, as Mary would say, it’s all made up! I love looking at life from a new perspective and this podcast really helps me to do that (since I’m a white male). I’ve always hated how the church marginalizes women, people of color, LGBTQ+ people, basically anyone who is not like me. Thanks for helping me see the world (and the screwed up mormon church) from a more realistic perspective, you ladies rock!
