Episode 5 – Making Adult Decisions

During our first recording session, Sam, Larissa, and Devin sat down to discuss some of the growing up we have to do after leaving a fundamentalist religion. From small decisions like what to wear, or what movies to watch, to the big-picture of morality, we talk about some of what is required to normalize after striking out on your own.

in·fan·til·ize (ĭn′fən-tl-īz′, ĭn-făn′-)
1. To treat or condescend to as if still a young child: “The Victorian physician infantilized his patient” (Judith Moore).
2. To reduce to an infantile state or condition: “It creates a crisis that infantilizes them—causes grown men to squabble like kids about trivial things” (New Yorker).

Episode 4 – Christmas Stories

In Part 1, Devin and Sam discuss “Storytelling and Santa”, the mini faith crisis of Santa, and its similarities to a religious faith crisis.

In Part 2, Larissa and Scott join the discussion and talk about some of the valuable bits of Christmas tradition that we still get enjoyment out of today.
