262 - Keep Your Private Sector to Yourself

August 21st, 2019

Republicans (and some Democrats) have done a great job of convincing a lot of people that privatization is the answer to a lot of America's problems, but they haven't adequately explained how privatizing things like prisons or our healthcare system actually provide a benefit for anyone except the fatcats at the top of the corporate food chain.

 

In this episode we learn that Ryan hates mayonnaise, boiled eggs, and vegetables, Ed Smart announces that he is gay, the Chrisley family has been charged with tax evasion, a Washington state woman learns why you shouldn't put a live octopus on your face, Buddhism is the most trusted religion in New Zealand, and Rick Wiles goes on an antisemitic rant about Hollywood.

 

Also, please do the world a favor - stop spreading bullshit conspiracy theories, mmmkay?

259 - Conversations with God

July 31st, 2019

If you're in the market for a brilliant podcast which features the dulcet tones of a British expat who now lives in Australia and records his conversations with an invisible sky wizard who is worshiped by the majority of our planet's inhabitants, boy howdy do we have some great news for you! 

 

Tony, the host (co-host, technically...?) of the Conversations with God Podcast, joined us for an interview to talk about the impetus for starting the show. He was also kind enough to put us in contact with the ever-inept bearded one who, somewhat begrudgingly, allowed us to ask him a few questions of our own - along with some questions from our awesome listeners.  

 

Patreon subscribers get early access to the show, bonus episodes, clips from the cutting room floor, and extended editions of the show! 

 

This week's episode features more than 20 additional minutes from the cutting room floor of our conversation with Tony.

We've also got a mini "What Matters" segment this week toward the end of the show!

257 - Bring ‘Em Young

July 17th, 2019

With its history of sexual predation by those in positions of power, it seems like a really bad idea for the LDS Church to lower the age of children who are "interviewed" by their local Bishop. But, based on a new survey they've sent to members, it looks like that's exactly what they plan to do.

 

Our Patreon patrons get a peek behind the curtain this week while we talk to the host of the Conversations with God podcast to set up his appearance on an upcoming show.

255 - Democratic Debate 2

July 3rd, 2019

We weren't planning to cover the debate, but we were recording while it was on & we all wanted to watch it, so we decided we might as well watch it with all of you!

 

Biden's performance was abysmal, and we're fine with that. The sooner he can get knocked off the stage, the better. Kamala Harris had a very strong showing, as did Pete Buttigieg, Bernie Sanders, Kirsten Gillibrand, and even Michael Bennet. Eric Swalwell and Marianne Williamson will (hopefully) be dropping out after the next debate at the end of the month, if not sooner. Everybody else in the field had a moment, but nothing that really set them apart.

253 - Mike Norton on McKenna Denson

June 19th, 2019

Mike Norton (A.K.A. NewNameNoah) joined us via Skype for an extensive discussion about the hullabaloo surrounding McKenna Denson.

 

For those who are unfamiliar with McKenna Denson, she made national headlines early last year when she came forward with allegations that Joseph Bishop sexually assaulted and/or raped her in the basement of the LDS Missionary Training Center in Provo, Utah decades ago while he was serving as head of the MTC. There have been many twists and turns to this story, the latest being that Denson's attorneys quit representing her in her lawsuit against the LDS Church shortly after Mike Norton released a video which he says points to a long history of deception by Denson.

251 - Religious Conformity

June 5th, 2019

What makes people conform to the religious practices around them even when they're not a member of the religion in question? Is it simply a result of trying to be polite? We're not quite sure, but it's definitely something we've noticed.

249 - Growing up Lesbian and Mormon with Katelyn & Callie (rebroadcast)

May 22nd, 2019

Due to some technical difficulties we're sure to address in the next episode (you can start blaming Ryan right now), this week's episode is a rebroadcast of our interview with Callie and Katelyn, a married lesbian couple and two of Dan's closest friends. Our conversation centers around the difficulties Katelyn faced growing up as a devout member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (you know - the Mormons).
 
This episode is a good fit for rebroadcast this week because Pride Month is just around the corner. Additionally, it should serve as a great warm-up for a special surprise - our upcoming episode with Mary and Shelly from the Latter-Day Lesbian Podcast! That's right! They're coming to town for the Salt Lake City Pride Festival and will be dropping by the Godless Rebelution studio to record an episode with us after the Pride Festival's weekend events.

248 - To Be Determined

May 15th, 2019

The way healthcare is managed in the United States is asinine. You get to take a trip down the river of lunacy with us while we talk about the ridiculous hoops patients have to jump through in order to get what should be some pretty basic and routine services.
 
Also, it's been a little while since we talked about free will, so we talk about that for a bit after hearing some interesting points about it we hadn't thought about before.
