This is your post-Mormon field guide

Practical. Reassuring. Helpful. Hopeful. A little snarky (we are apostates after all).

Welcome to Wardless, a podcast addressing the challenges and practicalities of navigating life after Mormonism. For those who have made the painful decision to walk away, the question of “what’s next?” can seem equally, if not more, daunting. In other words, figuring out the HOW of leaving can be just as difficult as the WHY.

We created Wardless: A Post-Mormon Field Guide to share stories of people who are walking this path, and to offer useful and practical insights with a lot of depth and little bit of fun.

Read our bios below, check out a few episodes, and share your questions and stories with us via the Contact page. We hope Wardless will help you feel less alone (and weird!) as you navigate life after Mormonism and find your new community, way of living, and self.
