Were you ever part of the Seventh-day Adventist Church or exposed to fundamentalist Christianity in general? If so, have we got a show for you (queue the Veggie Tales theme song)!
Haystacks & Hell is an ex-Adventist podcast where we tell stories about growing up Seventh-day Adventist, leaving faith behind, and building new, fulfilling lives.
We'll also unpack topics like:
- The end of the world
- Sex, dating, and purity culture
- Wild quotes from SDA "prophet" Ellen White
Have a story to share? Write to us or leave a voicemail at (301) 750-8648.

[00:00:00] Santiago: Seventh-day Adventism and fundamentalist Christianity are no joke, especially when you've been hurt by the church. But with enough time and distance, there's also plenty to laugh at.
[00:00:13] Santiago: Hi! I'm your host Santiago, former Adventist musician, deacon, youth leader, and Pathfinder staff. Whether you're just starting to question, left years ago, or simply here out of curiosity, have we got a show for you! We're republishing a podcast by ex-Adventists Abby and Ami, and we'll cover everything including the end of the world:
[00:00:39] Ami: No one will know the time or the place. You can't know the time or the place, but it's happening nowww!
[00:00:44] Abby: Soon!
[00:00:45] Santiago: Sex, dating, and purity culture:
[00:00:48] Ami: When abstinence only is kind of what you're taught, you're setting people up to fail.
[00:00:53] Abby: You graduate from college single, you suddenly find that you are a very strange fish in a very large ocean.
[00:01:00] Ami: [Laughing]
[00:01:00] Santiago: And of course, wild quotes from SDA prophet Ellen White:
[00:01:05] Abby: Eggs somehow increase, sorry, somehow increase the animal spirits?
[00:01:11] Ami: I'm sorry, eggs make you masturbate!?
[00:01:14] Abby: I'm sitting, I'm sitting here as a 14 year old, like, I've never heard adults talk about masturbation before, and I'm just like, don't move...
