Marie Kent, of My Book of Mormon Podcast and Lesley Butterfield of Mormon Women Speak Podcast get together with Colleen to provide a bit of feminist reaction to the most recent General Conference.

MHH38: Six Minute Skinny Dip into Worthiness Interviews, and the 1st Feminist Mormon Reading Roast

Join Marie Kent of My Book of Mormon Podcast and Colleen for the inaugural episode of Feminist Mormon Reading Roast. This week we are bringing you a real gem. The book is entitled Faith Precedes the Miracle by Spencer W Kimball. We can’t resist the allure of sexist 50’s style gender role glorification, condemnation of working mothers, and absolute benevolent sexism galore. This is only Part 1 of 3, so buckle up and stay tuned for even more! Next, another Six Minute Skinny Dip into the very timely topic of Bishop Worthiness Interviews. It’s fascinating to get a little history behind the practice at the root of Protect LDS Children and Sam Young’s efforts. Don’t miss the Call For Submissions to the first ever ExMo Created General Conference! Do you have something to say about General Conference weekend? Leave a voicemail at 435-494-1427! And be sure to try TWO cocktail suggestions this week! Videos available on Patreon!

MHH36: Two Bigfoot Sightings (the Mormon Kind) and an Interview with a Fundamentalist Mormon

Mithryn stops by for an installment of Six Minute Skinny-Dip into Mormon History, where we explore a hairy phenomenon in Mormon Folklore, that of Bigfoot as Cain. And for yet another Bigfoot sighting, Part 3 of Mormon Zodiac comes next, where we learn the last 3 uniquely Mormon astrological signs! Have you found yours yet? And to conclude the episode, a Sunstone Interview featuring Benjamin Shaffer of Christ’s Church, a fundamentalist sect of Mormonism. Colleen has a fascinating time learning more about this particular sect, how it is the same yet very different from Mainstream Mormonism. Living the Law of Consecration? Polygamy? Foreordination and personal revelation? It’s all in there. Video of Benjamin Shaffer, Mythrin and Mormon Zodiac can be found on Patreon.

Check out a FREE special interview on Patreon this week, Mark Whitley brings us “Why I Don’t Drink,” a pros and cons discussion of his decision not to partake in alcohol following his faith transition away from Mormonism.  The direct link is in the show notes.

MHH30: Interview w/Ethan Dodge, Sam’s Hunger Strike Update, and BYU’s Amnesty Loophole

Colleen gives an update on Sam Young’s Hunger Strike this past week in downtown SLC. Then she RANTS about the GIANT loophole that basically makes BYU’s recent Amnesty Policy completely worthless, as  was demonstrated at BYU-I when a student was expelled by her Bishop following a sexual assault. And to wrap things up on a lighthearted note, she gives you the gift of Ethan Dodge of MormonLeaks, an interview from Sunstone.  It’s basically lots of shit talking and cheap jokes. Colleen sounds really stupid, and Ethan shows off his nerdy smart knowledge correcting her. They both practice roasting Ryan McKnight, the ego behind MormonLeaks. For bonus points, what’s the phrase in this video that would make a winning drinking game prompt? Check out the FULL VIDEO of the interview on Patreon!
