This week, Cari goes solo since Kelsae is out of town at mothertucking RollerCon! Thanks to the lovely fans in our Facebook group who supplied her with suggestions, Cari discusses just a few terrible Mormon tropes and other crappy, trauma-inducing nonsensical ideas, including the idea of the “adversary” (that totes means Satan, you guys, and it’s super creepy) and of suffering in this life being justified by rewards in the next. There are a lot of clips of talks and intermittent solo ramblings by Cari. It’s okay if you miss Kelsae this week; Cari does, too.
