Addiction (Part 1?)

JP & I discuss addiction, its causes and its dangers. Especially pornography addictions. There’s a whole lot to cover here, and I’ve studied and learned a lot since we recorded this 2 months ago. Still, I think this is one of the most important topics for men in our day. It is just everywhere.

I may add more later, but here are a couple of resources:

  • Overcoming Pornography – A site built by the LDS church to help fight this addiction from a religious standpoint.
  • NoFap.com – Attacks the problem from a more secular angle, but has tons of resources and forums and such.

A Peculiar Podcast

After my spectacular fail in sound mixing last time, I realized far too late that I had things not set up well in the recording of this episode. Either I forgot to turn on my microphone or I was standing in a deep hole. Sigh. Please forgive me.

This time we talk about being a peculiar people. Does that just mean Mormons are weird? Should we try to be different?

Where are the TBMs online?

Welcome to the new year, friends!

In case you’ve never heard the term, “TBM” stands for True Believing Mormon or True Blue Mormon. It describes people who believe the core messages of the LDS church – God lives, Christ is His son and the Savior of the world, Joseph Smith was a prophet, the Book of Mormon is true, etc.

Here are a few sources we know about.

Podcasts

  • Mormon Misfit
  • The Cultural Hall¬†– I sounded hesitant about this during the recording, but since then I listened to a bunch more episodes. I think it’s great.

Blogs

Other places

  • Latter Day Saints subreddit – careful, true believers, much of reddit is a haven of filth and degradation, but the Latter-Day Saint group there is pretty solid.
