On this episode, we take a break from our historical timeline to bring you a special guest. Philippa Meek is a research fellow at Exeter University specializing in polygamous religious sects. Part one of our discussion walks us through the controversial and intense history of early Mormon polygamy in Nauvoo and Utah. Then we dive into the legal issues surrounding the Utah Mormons and how the federal government passed numerous acts to specifically target Mormon polygamy, as well as the Mormon response to this increased pressure. Tune in next week to hear about navigating the legal sphere of legalizing polygamy!
Come to the March for the Children!!!
