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 hear the Sunstone Seattle 2018 presentation on the Smith-entheogen theory. Cody Noconi begins with setting the psychedelic stage for entheogens in religious ritualism. Then he gives us a brief introduction of psychedelics in Mormonism. After that, yours truly takes us on a journey into the most practical supplier of entheogenic substances for Joseph Smith during his Kirtland ministry. After the presentation cuts short, I walk through the parts of the presentation we cut out for want of time.
