Mattathias Reads The World will say whatever I feel like saying, whenever I feel like recording what I say and broadcasting it publicly. I am often joined by friends and acquaintances who have thoughts worth sharing. It is inspired by James's Crappy Podcast (https://soundcloud.com/jamesgoldberg) and observes the Crappy Podcast promise of providing unedited, unscripted, unvarnished content.

Mattathias is joined by a band of weird and wonderful Mormon poets to share and celebrate their contributions to the ARCH-HIVE collective's 2020 Mormon Art Twitter challenge, #Archtober2020.

Out of serious concern about the global spread of a terrifyingly destructive strain of a debilitating and often terminal disease, I've invited the foremost community health expert, Dr. Madison Beckstrand, DA* who helped raise the alarm about the epidemic last year, to share her guidance on how the syndrome currently is spreading through our communi…

In preparation for All Souls Day, I met with LDS historian Ardis Parshall to discuss her "Who We Lost" project gathering the names of all the Latter-day Saint deaths to the Flu of 1918-1920.

The much-lauded "Queen of the Lit Blitz" Merrijane Rice joins me to discuss her 2020 Lit Blitz piece, "Family Tree". We discuss the differing benefits of poetry and prose, the similarity of small and large scale family drama and heartache, which leads us to imagine some of the challenges of Heavenly Parenting. I also get the inside scoop on Merrija…
 
Today is a good day, although not in this case a good day for breakfast at Denny's, at least for me. But because it is a good day I decided to do one of my favorite things which is to read the book of Jonah again and then to talk about it for an hour. If any of you are into hour long expositions of the book of Jonah, this episode is exactly what yo…
 
A very generous listener found the following recording in a vault, on a solid gold LP. I was able to play the record back and transfer it to digital format, and was very interested to find on it a broadcast from long, long ago with some startling resonances for our present moment. The record sleeve had a number of strange engavings on it, which my …
 
Annaliese Lemmon joins me virtually at MRtW Studios to share and discuss her Lit Blitz short story "Portal Friends", (https://lit.mormonartist.net/2020/06/portal-friends-by-annaliese-lemmon/) which explores (and in certain ways, I would argue, improves upon) C. S. Lewis' Narnia through the eyes of an 11-year old LDS girl adjusting to being part of …
 
I sit down virtually with The Conor Hilton (https://twitter.com/TheConorHilton (I grew up near tOSU, and learned by experience the value of a definite article!)) to discuss his claim to a guerrilla Mormonism.

We talk about finding Mormon literary communities, the power of having an audience to write for, and Darlene's …
 
Jared Forsyth joins me again to discuss the Mormon pioneer legacy, some of the ways we tell the story that cheapen their experience and set impossible expectations for us as we go through our own vale of tears, and some of the ways each of us has learned to honor them better and let their lived experience nourish and direct us. We reflect on Primar…
