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 look at a new release from Deseret News which claims that the church will produce a new comprehensive history. A 4-volume set released over 4 years covering more than 200 years from an historically verifiable, transparent, fictionalized account, written at a 10th grade reading level. This is their new commitment to answering controversial Mormon history; I’m not holding my breath. After that we talk to Charone Frankel of Habeas Humor Podcast to talk about her path through religiosity and how she came to host an atheist-law podcast. Be sure to give her show a listen, track down episode 11 to hear us talk about the FLDS.
