Spot On

Outstanding historians who give fascinating context to an unusual woman who certainly made a mark on Utah life and national suffrage. This program built some genuine understanding of a very different time. Thank you to all four of you.

Normally love this podcast, but one was a big miss

The recent podcast on the “Middle Way” could have been great, but was sub-par. Guest was inarticulate and lacked clear information, very self-focused. Interviewer was also sub par on this one. Please try again with this compelling topic, with a different guest, clear and crisp dialogue, and a podcast more up to your usual standards.

Wish there were more

I love this podcast. My only complaint is I wish there was one everyday! Hate waiting a whole week for the next one! The topics are so fascinating, and very relevant, especially if you have the great privilege of living in Utah. A must podcast.

This topic triggers me

I have 2 out of 8 kids that are gay. The bishop sent both of them to anti gay therapy as under age youth. It is wrong on all levels. Youth should not be sent to anti gay therapy at all. Nor should they go without parent consent. They are adults now. And I still can’t get over this. I’m so affected by how this was handled by 2 different bishops. Anyway. I’ll get off my soap box but I really appreciate the way you handle topics that can affect all LDS people.

Biased, unrepresentative, and terrible audio

If there’s one podcast that epitomizes the phrase “the philosophies of men mingled with scripture” it would be this one. I’ve listened to at least 30 episodes and this podcast is nothing but a platform for progressive/leftist Mormons to criticize the Church’s policies and it’s leaders. The arrogance that these people show is astounding. In my own opinion this podcast, and the views its perpetuates, is a subtle form of priest craft. 2 Nephi 26:29 “He commandeth that there shall be no priestcrafts; for, behold, priestcrafts are that men preach and set themselves up for a light unto the world, that they may get gain and praise of the world; but they seek not the welfare of Zion.” If someone is constantly claiming they’re loving, tolerant, or compassionate there’s a definite chance that they’re not but only interested in promoting their misguided self-righteousness. That is what this podcast is doing.

Who is this guy?

I usually like this podcast, but I think you owe a lot of people an apology with this episode. Not using respectful terms of our church leaders and assuming 80% of his information. We believe in continuing revelation and it does come from God. We’ve always loved the LGBTQ community and the assumptions of “going after them” is completely wrong. We do change and that is in Gods time he gives us line upon line, wisdom upon wisdom. We are not “banging on these people”Why does the “Church” have to apologize for revelation? If you believe in revelations then you’re saying God needs to apologize

Why is the sound such terrible quality?

I enjoy podcasts and listen to 5-6 a day. And I can’t understand why they tape this with such terrible sounds. Peggy always sounds like she’s no where near the microphone. Some guest who are on via phone are super loud. I would think they could afford better sound system. Maybe they should take a listen to their own podcast via iTunes etc. I have a Bose system I listen on so i know it’s not my system.

A must-listen for anyone who finds religion fascinating

You definitely don’t have to be LDS or even religious to enjoy this podcast. This podcast is for anyone who is curious to observe how religious institutions evolve in the modern world and in relation to their own theology, culture, traditions and history.This podcast should be required listening for any active LDS member, as it could go a long way toward helping them develop a healthier and more level-headed relationship with their church, as well as anyone who wants to be more informed about the LDS church. The hosts are journalists who regularly hold respectful, professional and thoughtful discussions with various guests [church leaders, historians, writers, activists, etc.] about various aspects of the church’s history, culture, theology and ongoing evolution. They never seem like they have an agenda. Some episodes are naturally more engaging than others, depending on the interview guest and discussion topic, and some episodes can go into more controversial or delicate topics while still handling them with care and neutrality from the hosts. I think it is as good of a podcast centered on LDS topics as I could have hoped for, so I think in that sense it is an important and relevant piece of journalism that I think warrants a 9/10.

A needed voice in a community that loves the echo chamber!

Keep up the great interviews and discussions. The more diversity away from our culture’s “sameness” is a step forward towards humanity’s ultimate “becoming...”

Great Work

I’m LDS, late-30s, and in a bishopric. This is a great place to get perspectives from active LDS, inactive LDS, and non-LDS alike. Keep up the good work.

Interesting but quality could be better

This is a weekly podcast that focuses on topics of interest to members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.The topics are sometimes controversial.Not all topics will be of interest to everyone.The podcast sometimes sounds like it is recorded in Mom’s basement. Better recording equipment would improve the podcast. While everyone coughs, on a podcast it is annoying and distracting. A cough button would be a great asset.The hosts are print journalists not on air professionals. Perhaps using the assistance of media professionals would be a good investment.

Great journalism that fills an important niche

Love these podcasts! Fletcher Stack is a long time veteran observer of Mormon culture and sociology. These podcasts meet an important need for thoughtful —even generous — cultural commentary, while avoiding hagiography and staying true to journalistic standards.
