Siblings in Zion

18 EpisodesProduced by Siblings in ZionWebsite

Ex-Mormon siblings Brother Dan and Sister Lisa discuss Mormon culture, religiosity, atheism, comparing their experiences growing up in 'The One True Church' and leaving the old rules behind to search for a more fulfilling life outside of it.


05: The Ballad of Sister Lisa

In this special edition of the show, we present a condensed version of the two episodes of Dan's educational entertainment podcast The Fundamentals (now known as Everywhere You Go is Bullsh*t) in which Lisa was a guest, discussing Mormonism.


Lisa joins Brother Dan, Darren McCarthy & Martin Wallace to share her personal story of growing up in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, being baptized by her brother, attending BYU-Idaho, and serving a full-time mission for 18 months before eventually beginning to question the claims of Joseph Smith, the origins of the Book of Mormon, and the history of the church.


She also talks about the structure of missionary life bleeding over after she returned, her struggle to conform to the expectations of women in the church, some of the very weird things she used to believe, and the process of learning and accepting the incompatible truths that would lead her to resign her membership and seek a life of her choosing.
