Great panel this evening, as Danielle from Hello Sweetie, Podcast! Stops in to claim her prize and gets sabotaged in turn. Forrest, Bob, and JM Bell round out the crew to cover some of the goofiest, oddest, and most insane news from the week you thought you’d left behind!
This is The LEFT Show!

A great mix of voices this week: JM Bell, Melissa Merlot, Forrest Shaw, and Bob Easton are in the studio to cover all the goofiest new of the week you thought you’d left behind. Join us, won’t you?
Oh what a crowded room! Aaron Burton, Forrest Shaw, JC Carter, Taylor Hunsaker, and me, JM Bell. We talk a bit about FatCamp 3, Geek Therapist, and other newer shows! This week has a lot about equality – and the shameful lack of it in America these days. From Baltimore, to Transgender, to marriage equality in our time – it’s time for The LEFT Show!
The LDS Church’s “Big Step” yesterday was nothing more than a well crafted, sugar coated move to legalize bigotry and discrimination; you know, as long as you sprinkle enough Jesus on your hate. This is poison. This is bad, and the number of people jumping on the Kool-Aid train is not only startling, it’s mind mindbogglingly worse.
Beliefs are tricky. I believe that the LDS Church should pay taxes. I believe that my pals on the left that think something amazing happened yesterday, need to catch the shuttle out of Stepford, and settle into some serious rational, intellectual thinking; casting aside the feel good fiction they’re helping to manufacture.
From the Huffington Post:
The new Mormon position is like that candy with a razor blade inside that your mom warned you about on Halloween. While calling for LGBTQ people to be protected from those who hate them for non-religious reasons (and who are those people, anyway?), they have hidden their real agenda, which is to legalize such discrimination by anyone who claims their prejudice is backed by faith.
I believe that the Republican dumbing down of America was engineered for exactly this kind of thing – an ignorant population, blissfully cheering their own repression, ’cause the pretty talk sounds like nice words, even if they don’t know what the words mean anymore.
I believe that using the Oxford comma is what separates us from the animals.
My apologies, but, I got sick sick and we didn’t record this week, so … This was a fun one from last year. JM Bell, Janneke House, Bob Henline, and Forrest Shaw were the reason for the season in this episode.
