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 finally return to our historical timeline and the Bennett Meltdown. Jo starts in the custody of the Adams County Sheriff. An “escape” occurs and Jo flees town with a bit of trickery. We spend some time reading letter correspondence between Jo and other “thinking few” Mormon elites.
