Episode 34: A secular come-to-Jesus-meeting for white ex-Mormons about our privilege

This week, Cari and Kelsae, two white ladies, gather up other white ex-Mos for a discussion about white privilege and how it makes us into assholes. White ex-Mormons, particularly those who create ex-Mo content, should be talking about white privilege, implicit bias, and racism. We need to hear more from marginalized groups. We need to believe them when they say they are hurt and we need to support them in the ways they want to be supported. We also all fail, and we should own it. In that spirit, here’s the episode.

Closing thought: If you don’t have to think about it, it’s a privilege.

Episode 33: It's a two-fer! LDS church on the BSA and medical marijuana

This week, Cari and Kelsae give you two topics for the price of one. They discuss the announcement that, after 105 years, the LDS Church and the BSA will go their separate ways and the LDS Church’s concerns on Utah’s medical marijuana initiative. Cari may need to take a chill pill in parts of this but hey you knew what you were getting into. Please listen, Utah voters, and make sure your neighbors have access to the medicine they need.

Episode 32: "Non-consenual immorality" and why Mormons don't understand consent

This week, Cari and Kelsae discuss Elder Quinton L. Cook’s recent General Conference address, Prepare to Meet God, wherein this so-called apostle of the Lord introduced the concept of “nonconsensual immorality” and conflated it with good old fashioned immorality. Body autonomy is the theme of the day as Cari and Kelsae rip that miserable special witness of Christ a new one. CONTENT WARNING: Cari shares a specific event of sexual assault from 30:50-31:50.

Episode 31: Self-compassion

This week, Kelsae and Cari talk about self-compassion. Kelsae gives us some of the key points of Dr. Kristen Neff’s book, Self-compassion: The Proven Power of Being Kind to Yourself, and both Sisters discuss and feel a little grief for their poor Brendas (their critical self-talk). Come, listen to an apostate’s voice expound the importance of just being fetching kind with ourselves.
