  1. I’m a full time listener, part time donor. This particular interview, ep. 145, was exceptionally offensive to me as someone who has lost loved ones to COVID. I understand that you were both tiptoeing around their insane politics to get to the meat of their experience leaving the Mormon church. But as interviewers, I feel like your passivity gave the impression that any way you leave the LDS church, even if it’s because you’re a conspiracy theorist who wilfully brings harm to other people, that’s just fine. And I do not agree with that. As harmful as Mormonism is, there are obviously more harmful dogmatic ideologies that people can leave the church for. You wouldn’t applaud a couple who left the LDS church to join ISIS, do not applaud or passively condone antivax conspiracy weirdos. Thank you.
