Apologies for the break last month, unexpected events took precedence.
We’re back with a wonderful guest, an ex-mormon whose devout life was disrupted by a longing to study biology and a difficult, and often abusive, relationship. Join us as she talks about discovering the reality behind her religious upbringing and the Mormon church, and finding a new world of reason and truth through interactions with atheist communities on Twitter.
Our guest describes growing up in a close knit Mormon community and the challenges that she faced as she found herself beginning to doubt, and the struggle to be able to forge her own identity as an educated woman. Her story will move you, make you laugh, and most of all inspire you to realize that even through tremendous difficulty and physical danger, it is possible to find a life of peace through reason.
