This week, Cari and Kelsae discuss the BITE Model as it pertains to the Mormon mission experience. Spoiler alert: Mormon missions are extremely cult-y. Also, Cari and Kelsae both totally know that the honorific for male missionaries is “Elder,” regardless of what you might hear on this, their very own podcast.
