    I am very glad this podcast exists. -A Great Idea!
    I like history including the Mormon Movement, but in the larger context of American history, and in relation to the other branches of the movement, and the Brighamite branch’s reactionist behavior to the U.S. Government.
    –and this concept podcast seems it will be great discussion in broader and informative ways, perhaps more so than many discussion-type podcasts by others.
    Also Brent Metcalfe’s view of the movement’s origin of a few main driving ideas, like Native American origins and destiny, and how The Book of Mormon’s purposes, that largely fueled the desire for, hence production of the Book, have largely been cast aside and forgotten by the membership, in order for the Utah Church to survive by downplaying what brought into existence.
    So anywho, I’m glad this is started already. I hope it’s weekly.

    I would love to listen to this podcast but it isn’t registered on the “Stitcher” podcast app library, which I use for all my podcast listening. Mormon Stories is registered on Stitcher so hopefully this is something Mormon Studies can do too.

    Just found out about Mormon Studies Podcast today by listening to your interview with John Dehlin. I must say that your interviews with John were extremely impactful to me. Most interesting and very well done. I’m anxious to see Mormon Studies develop and mature over the years as well.
