Episode #73 – Geoff Has Body Image Issues

Jon Huntsman has a terrible website. Seriously. Time to fire the social media and digital communications staff. It turns out General Authorities can’t take part in political campaigns.

A blog devoted to bringing beards back to the Church. Geoff rants against LDS Tech. In fact, it seems he hates LDS Tech. Why the love for Apple? Where’s the Android love? What did we do to deserve this?? Also, Al calls himself a “technophobe” … Mormon Stories is a great podcast. Check it out. We discuss this past week’s show, which dealt with some pretty heady stuff. We won’t even write it on here, but listen in. It was actually the base of one of the more serious discussions we’ve had on TWiM. We know, right? TWiM? Serious??? Al makes a doof of himself in front of Harry Reid. …Other assorted joys. Clicking these is hardcore. You are bi-winning: Newsroom updates on tsunami...
