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 begin with a very brief introduction to the purpose and focus of this podcast. After that, we take some time to discuss the history of Joseph Smith from birth to his early public life. Various details of the Smith family are revealed by neighbors as well as Lucy Mack Smith, Joseph’s mother. We also get a very simplistic understanding of magic and occult traditions followed by the Smith family and Joseph specifically. The episode ends with a short introduction to the host, Bryce Blankenagel, as well as a directory to the backlog of the podcast.

This edition of Episode 1 was recorded after the end of the “Road to Carthage” series which marked the end of Joseph Smith’s life.
