The title “Infants on Thrones” is an homage to the Mormon Founder Joseph Smith who said, in his lesser-known King Follet discourse, that “Eternity is full of thrones, upon which dwell thousands of children, reigning on thrones of glory, with not one cubit added to their stature.”
It is a funny image, but it also suggests that we, as amateur podcasters, do not really have all the answers we may think we do. We can’t take ourselves too seriously. We are also Infants on Thrones.

Do beliefs impact our biology? What about a rejection of those beliefs? Glenn sits down with Chelsea to talk about belief, culture, social media, the Mormon “cult” (her word, not mine), and both the social and biological costs of walking away from your “tribe.”
The Mormon Church is the real enemy!
Wait, no… John Dehlin is the real enemy!
Wait, no… Infants on Thrones is the real enemy!
Wait, no… it’s patriarchy, Trump, liberals, conservatives, academics, the police, fundamentalists, atheists, Jordan Peterson, straw users (and the beat goes on…)
Glenn shares his response to the recent “Open Letter to John Dehlin Smackdown” episode, and clarifies who (or what) he sees as the “real enemy” and explains why he still enjoys making these podcast episodes and where he hopes this podcast will go into the future.
