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.
