It's Jaymes here - the founder of JW Podcast all those years ago.
I've now taken back control of the podcast as it was sort of verring off into a direction that I had never envisioned it to. For instance, when I launched JW Podcast, I never wanted it to be a platform where we throw other ex-Jehovah's Witnesses under the bus, but rather a podcast that current and ex-Jehovah's Witnesses could listen to and relate to the things they were listening to.
From this point on, we're going to be looking forward and getting back to the fun stuff!
We'll be recording the new show soon, so stay tuned!
Jaymes brings back the original gang for a show!
Jaymes, Louise and Lloyd are back are back for this one episode only, and take a look at the Australian Royal Commission, March 2017's JW Broadcasting Show, and delve deep into the 2017 Yearbook.
The team at JW Podcast have united the hemispheres and battled one particularly pesky Skype demon in order to bring you this episode.
Patricia, Lloyd, and guest host Gordon are joined by Pierre Burmester from Australia, creator of the All Along The Watchtower web series, for a panel discussion about the importance of education in the post-JW landscape. The team also listens to and discusses some excellent voicemails, and they discuss the Slippery Slope fallacy.
For this episode, JW Podcast hosts Patricia, Lloyd, and Louise discuss the Jehovah’s Witness judicial process with special guest Gordon, aka Toledo Squad. Jehovah’s Witnesses insist that their disciplinary system is fair, loving, and reasonable, but Gordon’s riveting story reveals what all too often happens when elders decide that a member of their congregation needs “spiritual help.”
This episode sees Patricia, Louise, and Lloyd joined by the brilliant Ryan Bell, who transitioned from Seventh Day Adventist pastor to atheist and Founder of Life After God during last few years. They discuss the process of finding one's way in the world after making a break from the religion that defined them, and they compare and contrast some central JW and SDA beliefs, practices, and common origins.
Afterwards, the hosts delve into some phenomenal listener voicemails. Finally, Lloyd provides an update on his endeavors with the UK Charity Commission, and Louise gives details on a new public pressure group starting in Canada.
Patricia, Lloyd, and Louise are joined by Brett Griffin-Young for a discussion about parenting: how it is approached by Jehovah's Witnesses, the way a JW upbringing affects people born into the religion, and the challenges and rewards of raising children as ex-Jehovah's Witnesses.
Afterwards, in the newest Fun with Fallacies segment, the hosts examine the "argument from ignorance/God of the gaps" fallacy, including how to spot it in JW rhetoric and how to move past it toward a more productive debate. Finally, Louise updates us on her recent foray into peaceful activism on the local Kingdom Hall level, and Lloyd shares some news on a letter he submitted to the UK Charities Commission.
Happy Holidays from JW Podcast! Lloyd Evans faces off with Deborah Frances-White in a debate for the ages. They tackle the question "Are the Governing Body cynical or deluded?"
Listen to each side present very convincing arguments, with Patricia as the informal moderator. The team examines the possible motivations of the current Governing Body, analyzing Ray Franz' take on the subject, the way the current members address 1914, and the GB approach towards higher education, among other things.
Patricia, Louise, and Lloyd are in a discussion of the findings released earlier this month for the Australian Royal Commission. We break down the Senior Counsel's conclusions and analyze the infuriating rebuttals by Watchtower's slick lawyers. We also talk about a bombshell news piece on Jehovah's Witnesses released in Portugal, and GB member David Splane's baffling attempt to discredit the reporter at the helm. Finally, we answer assorted questions from listeners.
