We are so sorry to hear that after leaving the Jehovah’s Witnesses your parents are now shunning you. But the good news is that The Great British Baking show can fill that mommy and daddy sized hole in your heart with an expertly baked sponge,
Back in action and alone because not all of our guests live in the same time zone and math can be tricky.
This week we talk with Scott Homan, an exJW filmmaker who is currently working on XJW | Coming out, a documentary about those who have left the Jehovah’s Witness organization. We had a great discussion about his history with the organization, l
They are big, blue, mammalian, and most importantly MEAN. This week we talk to Dayne who is a wonderful man who was raised in a homophobic Jehovah’s Witness household. We talk about what it is like to be gay growing up in the Jehovah’s Witness
This week we had the pleasure of speaking with Sarah Ragsdale. She talks about being raised as a Pentecostal, Bible College, Jesus Bootcamp, and much more. Fair warning, some heave subject matter gets touched on in this episode. You should chec
This week we talk to Chris Oliver about flat earth, alien beings, third eyes and the tokoloshe man. This episode will leave you with a white-knuckled grip on the edge of the earth.
The big 2-0. Thanks for sticking around with us. This week we have a special guest on and the conversation goes into some interesting directions that I don’t think we properly anticipated. We also get a little closer to the true whereabouts of
Oops, we forgot to record a podcast for like 6 months. That’s on us. But we are back now and very regular. Buckle up and listen to the sounds our mouths make in front of these microphones.
This week we speak to our good friend Chris and his wife Lily who have an interesting relationship with Jehovah’s Witnesses. We talk about marrying a JW, leaving God from a mainline Christian faith, atheism, and pubic hair.   Mostly pubic hair.
This week the boys talk about the various beliefs and obstacles that held them in for a while when trying to leave the Jehovah’s Witnesses organization. We take a few emails from listeners about the subject and we have a few answers to why curr
This week we had the pleasure of talking to WifiBandit. We dont know what his real name is either by the way and we listened to his masked voice so much that I kind of forgot what he actually sounds like too. WifiBandit is well known in the ex
Similar to our Tight Pants Tony episode, we break down a Local Needs talk given to Nick’s congregation after he left the organization. This might be the culty-est talk we have ever heard. Listen to the full, uninterrupted talk in all its filth
This week we talked to our good friend Mike in Colorado, The Sunshine State. We talk about waking up while married to a very devout believer and all of the repercussions of making the decision to come forward about your disbelief to your spouse
*JUMP SCARE* Sorry about that, I know it was scary but we had to set the right tone. This week we talk DEMONS, the devil and something Caleb found on the internet that is way, way, way worse than either of those things.   Like, way worse.
It has been a stressful 3 weeks off for us but we are back and as mediocre as ever! We talk about our hiatus and the repercussions of putting on an apostate podcast. And yes, weird furry diaper baby conventions too, don’t worry. Rainfurrest 201
Harnessing the power of  internet telephones we talked to Lloyd Evans (www.jwsurvey.org, The Reluctant Apostate) this week. We talk about activism, shunning, strained family relationships, and most importantly, Downton Abbey.
THE WAIT IS OVER. HERE IT IS. GET READY. GET PUMPED. YELL AT YOUR REFLECTION IN THE MIRROR. POUR THE MILK BEFORE THE CEREAL. PUT THE POPTART IN THE MICROWAVE. We answer your questions this week and read your stories LIVE* on air.   *Not live bu
So, bummer: we don’t have a full episode for you this week. Technical issues made the podcast we recorded such a nasty one. We have the issue fixed now and we are going to be back to rerecord super soon. Here is a little message I have prepared
This week we squeeze each other into the tightest pants we own and get down to business. We decided to tackle the infamous “Tight Pants” talk given by Governing Body member Anthony Morris III. We spend almost 2 hours dissecting these awful word
The podcast this week is absolutely nowhere as offensive as the title might imply. We actually talk about Field Service this week and how miserable an experience it was for everyone on all sides.
We had the privilege of talking to Andy this week who, in addition to being Ryan’s cousin, was a 4th generation Jehovah’s Witness who is now being shunned by virtually everyone in his family. We talk shunning, the inner workings of the Jehovah’
Good Good Friday everyone. The Prodigal Boys celebrate Easter the only way we know how, cursing into microphones for an hour or so. Joining us this week is our very first guest, our very close friend and fellow exjw, Brooke. We talk about shunn
Using both hook and crook The Prodigal Boys managed to get this podcast made after several failed attempts. This week we watched God’s Not Dead. Listen to us say things into microphones about it and hear our interpretation of it as 3 ex cult me
Prepare your ears to Eat Fresh on this Friday afternoon. The Prodigal Boys talk more about waking up from the JW cult, the specific issues that woke us up, and a lot about subway. Enjoy!   (Also here is the link to the “Tight Pants Tony” talk
Welcome to the birth of a new feature of The Prodigal Boys: The Prodigal Boys At The Movies! We decided instead of splitting these ideas out into two separate podcasts we would roll them both into a sweet and savory podcast taquito for your ear
