The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, has been around for almost two centuries. It has ebbed and fluctuated in such a predictably adaptive manner throughout it's relatively short life in the religious realm. This Church has a very sordid past, which it does a very good job of teaching for itself, whether the history is slanted or not, is yours to decide. Join me on a journey through the history of the LDS Church through the eyes of the people that were actually there. We will learn about the founding members, where the practices came from, where the Book of Mormon (Mormon Bible) came from, and most importantly, we will examine Joseph Smith in every aspect possibly available to us today.

On this episode, we check in on a recent talk by M. Russell Ballard given Sept. 11, 2016. He says that not every member has to be a historian or scholar but viewing Mormon history with podcasts and internets are a bad! We also discuss leaks breaking church headlines. A series of videos were recently released that show internal meetings with church leaders, one of which discusses the appallingly low retention rate of millennials in the church. We also bring on Dan Wees, of the Book of Mormon Comparative and collaborator of the RealBookofMormon.org Kickstarter campaign, to talk about the finer points of the website and his personal contributions.
