We’re very excited to invite a panel onto the show to discuss the forthcoming documentary about psychedelics in early Mormonism, EntheoMagus!

Two sets of screenings are coming in late April and early May so if you’re in the SL, UT or Portland, OR areas, mark your calendar and grab your tickets before they’re all gone. Admission is free and we’re looking for any and all feedback!

Scripture study!!! Well, sort of. We’re talking about the codenames contained in the Doctrine & Covenants sections 78, 82, 92, 96, 103, 104, and 105. Names like Gazelam, Ahashdah, Pelagoram, Mahalaleel, Mahemson, Shederlaomach, and (most importantly) Talents, all appear concerning the Secret Combination of the United Firm, or United Order. We discuss the history of the names, who’s involved, and why they appear in the first place. Huge thanks to Gene Judson of Latter-daily Digest for inviting us onto the show and suggesting the topic! After that we chat about a movie concerning a secret combination, Hot Fuzz! We wrap with some happy news about biodegradable micro-polymers hoping to replace plastics!

It’s time for our next installment of Huge Niblet’s Approaching Zion! He spends basically the entire section lamenting higher education and any information from sources other than the “p”rophet’s counsel. Does he want us to be zealous, or learned? Nobody knows! But before that we have a quick debrief and error correction from the last episode of Mormonism Live with Dan Vogel and Bryce discussing the Spalding theory of Book of Mormon authorship. Don’t miss the discussion linked below. Then we round out the episode with some happy news about Christians getting supermad about being held to the same legal standard as non-Christians.

We did it! We FINALLY did it! After years and years and years of requests from many listeners we have finally taken a look at Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s very first Sherlock Holmes book —  A Study In Scarlet. We look at the time period Doyle was writing it and why he would take on Mormonism in his first book. We also take a look at the impact the story had on how Mormons were treated in film. And since that book is an outsider looking into Mormonism, we decided that for the Media of Great Price segment, we’d look at a film of an insider looking out of Mormonism. Yes, after many listener requests, we watched the shitshow that is the Mormon film 17 Miracles. Following that discussion we cleanse all palate’s with some good news out of the UK about leaving a treaty that allows fossil fuel companies to sue governments. Enjoy your listener request episode!
