365 - Mormon American Idol

January 24th, 2022

David Archuleta is an American pop singer, a former contestant for Star Search and American Idol, and is a current member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the Mormon church). He is also gay and has been having a lot of internal struggles trying to reconcile who he is with the faith he was indoctrinated into - a faith that requires him to never act on what it refers to as "the challenge of same-sex attraction."

 

We talk about David's recently posted video on Instagram in which he talks about his struggles with his faith, depression, and suicidal ideation.

364 - Insurrection Retrospection

January 19th, 2022

It's been a whole year since a mob of rabid, easily-duped, Trump-supporting, credulous, Christian Nationalist insurrectionists stormed the United States Capitol complex as part of an effort to dismantle democracy and overturn the results of a free and fair election because their orange savior lost. We take a look back at what happened, the events leading up to it, the aftermath, and discuss the existential fear gripping the rational inhabitants of this nation.

363 - Selling Sex in Mormon Utah

January 10th, 2022

Steve Cuno is an author, copywriter, widower, father, grandfather, skeptic, and "marketing know-it-all" who joined us to talk about his new book, Behind the Mormon Curtain: Selling Sex in America's Holy City. He spent years researching, conducting interviews, writing, and editing this book, and it shows.

 

What Steve initially envisioned as a collection of light-hearted and comedic stories turned into a much more interesting and nuanced examination of the sex work industry in Utah. He takes us behind the Zion curtain to reveal some of the tricks (pun fully intended) of the trade and teaches us all a thing or two about what it means to be able to take a compassionate and empathetic look at one of the oldest professions in the world.
