In this two-part episode, the full quorum — Tom, Glenn, Randy, Bob, Matt, Scott, and Jake — take a very long stroll down memory lane and discuss their collective experiences with the Mormon Expression podcast — the good, the bad, and the ugly.
But mostly the good. Cuz once upon a time, we put as much energy, love, and passion into that podcast as we do into this one. And it’s finally time to tell that story (for anyone who might find it interesting or meaningful).
We take a mostly chronological approach, spanning nearly three years of our collective lives:
Part 1 focuses on the early days of Mormon Expression, starting in June 2009, with Tom as a founding member, and finishes up with Glenn joining the group in early 2010.
Part 2 begins with a reflection of Tom’s classic interview with Will Bagley (Bishops asking young men about sex with animals, anyone?) and takes us up through the contributions of Scott, Bob, Randy, Matt, and Jake to the end of our Mormon Expression experience and the beginning of Infants on Thrones around June 2012.
Apologies upfront for the length and often whimsical self-indulgence of our discussion. If you are not familiar with Mormon Expression or did not follow that podcast during the time we are discussing, this may turn in to a very long snooze-fest. But it was certainly important and impactful for us. Because for a significant part of our lives, it was Our Mormon Expression, too.
