Episode 83: LDS Flavored Cinema

So this was recorded just after the election. That’s how slow I am in putting these up. I’d promise to be better, but we’d both know that’s a lie. I’ll try anyway…

We’ve talked a bit before about Mormon/ LDS produced and themed media, but at the time we recorded this, I was going through a major watch anything LDSsy that exists no matter how silly phase.

Media Standards

JP & B have the age old “What movies are appropriate?” debate.¬†We talk about whether or not having media restrictions makes for socially weird kids. And we may have tossed in a little discussion about books, tv shows and music, too. And more than just kids, we talk about the standards we should keep for ourselves.

Notes:

The Movies

The media you take in affects you, and good, uplifting media isn’t going to be made unless you support it.

And here’s Bryce’s sorta-kinda re-creation of the chart JP mentioned.
