Unofficial Big Love

Real Mormons Talking About Fictional Mormons

Episode 1: Panel Intros, Historical Mormon Context, Why We LOVE Big Love!

Greetings! This is the first episode of our new podcast: Unofficial Big Love. We’re really excited about this and we hope you love it. As Mormons, we get asked all the time about what we think of Big Love. Now we can get the word out using our own shiny, new podcast!

In this episode, the panel members introduce themselves. Yes, we’re all Mormons. Some of us even grew up in Utah. All of us love the show.

We then go through some of the show’s story lines and talk about which ones have historical precedents and which ones are a little more out there (at least in terms of their Mormon bona fides), and move on to what the show gets right and what it gets wrong.

The podcast wraps up with each of us love about the show and what it means to us, as Mormons.

    So you guys are comfortable with calling yourselves ‘real mormons’, eh?

      Well, true, my calling and election hasn’t been made sure. But otherwise, I (and most of the rest of the panel) have pretty much experienced everything Mormonism has to offer. And we all grew up Mormon.

      So we are comfortable calling ourselves real Mormons, but the real question is, are other Mormons comfortable with that? I’m not so sure…

        I guess you’re at a further stage in the leaving process, cause I’d go pretty far out of my way to distance myself from that tag.

          Whoa, who said anything about leaving? My name is still on the records of the Church, and I have a proud Mormon heritage.
