Tonight we sit down with Born Again Mormon superstar Shawn McCraney and find out what makes him tick!  This interview packs a lot into 90-minutes! (***Listener Warning for some mildly salty language–Shawn is a bad influence on me.)

  1. I love Shawn. He is the real deal. RFM, Bill Reel, Shawn, Danny of Talking to Mormons and Bishop Earl Ex Mormon files have had the largest impact on my journey. I will be forever grateful. I didn’t know who John Dehlin was until recently. Shawn, my deep dive into the OT has left me different than I was before covid and attended every Sunday. I will email Danny and cc you. I hope you will still want me to attend.
    RFM, I donate so much to Shawn that you get skunked. I will rectify that by donating to you more. You both have been huge in my world. Shawn, thank you for helping me learn that agape love is freeing and fulfilling. You are what you said in this interview, a loveable scoundrel.

  2. RFM, Thanks very much for doing this interview. Great closing song!👍That was popular at a different time. Carpenter of Wood and One More Mountain to Climb were good songs as well at that different time. I thoroughly enjoyed this podcast and it falls in the – Healthy – category. What an interesting interview. Yes it really boils down to love. Thanks Shawn. Thanks RFM

  3. Great Interview. Shawn is the best. I had the pleasure of having dinner with him and his wife a couple of years ago in SLC. His honesty is rare and he really is authentic.

    Keep up the good work

    Really great interview, a lot of depth there. Had not heard of Shawn before but his story and message are great and you and he had a really good back and forth.

    I’m awarding extra credit for using “soteriology” in a sentence again.

  5. Waking up to see my two favorite post-mormons having an hour+ discussion was a joyful surprise. Both you, RFM, and Shawn have helped me immensely in navigating what can be, and often is, such a twisty, turny, bumpy exit road out of our former religion. I really appreciated you asking Shawn about how he felt realizing a few of his beliefs seemed to have gone full circle back to an LDS view. It’s a question I have been curious to know the answer to for a little while now, so I was very pleased to have a chance to hear his answer. Great interview!

  6. From the beginning of this episode I wondered why RFM was interviewing an Christian evangelical. I was taken in about 3/4 of the way through in true surprise. I was a believing Mormon for 40+ years, now a resolute agnostic/atheist. However for the first time in years a message of faith checked more boxes for me than any other. Shawn if you could match what we know about science to a loving God and Jesus, I would seriously consider it.

  7. I’ve thought this for a long time — Shawn gets Christianity right. It’s a shame he gets shunned by the corporate christian elites but pretty much consistent with Jesus’s experiences and warnings he left for us…..
