All Good Things Must Come to an End

I’m sorry to announce that the Flying Spaghetti Mormon podcast is no more. After 15 delightfully fun episodes (and far too many TMI moments), Levi and I are moving on from the podcast.

To be frank, researching and talking about Mormonism is emotionally exhausting. Realizing each and every week that a bigoted, homophobic, racist, misogynistic organization continues to exist and hurt people takes its toll.

While neither of us will stop fighting against the Mormon church and any other organization that can’t embrace modern philosophies and ethics, our active role in providing timely, biting commentary must stop if either of us wants to stay sane.

It hurts to leave because it feels like there is an insurmountable deal of work to be done and not enough people doing it. And I don’t mean to say that we’ve really done anything to stop Joseph’s juggernaut, but at the very least we hope to have eased someone’s faith transition or made someone laugh.


 

It costs money to host the files in a readily consumable format, so the podcast feed will disappear shortly. That said, if you want to re-listen to any episodes, I’ve managed to get all the episodes archived on Archive.org which you can find here:

They will live there through all generations of time, and throughout all eternity. These episodes are our mark on the Mormon world, and we will forever love the time when we were able to inject a modicum of reason into the Bloggernacle.

Episode 12 – It’s All About the Penises, Baby

Levi and Reuben are fascinated with dicks this week. Not sure if it’s because of the stories or some sort of evil, latent, homosexual feelings surging to the surface as they continue to get to know each other. I guess we’ll never know.
