Is there space for agency to exist in our causal and determined world? After listening to a recent Mormonism live episode where Bill and RFM discussed Agency with their guest Carah, Scott invited Bill onto the show to discuss the subject in further detail. This episode is a primer on the debate over the existence of a free will. In it, they cover determinism, compatibilism, and libertarianism and the arguments for and against each.

Hi Scott! I was wondering the name of the multiverse movie you keep suggesting. I can’t remember.
I’ll mention it as many times as people ask. It’s one of my all-time favorite movies now. I saw it in the theater three times and considered going again this week. Everything Everywhere All at Once, directed by the Daniels starring Michelle Yeoh and Ke Huy Quan. I will put in a content warning. It’s rated ‘R’ and there is some graphic content. If you go and see it be sure to reach back out to me, I’d love to hear what you think.
