Prop 2 is set to make Utah a medical cannabis state. The Mormon Church released a statement and sent out emails to every member they have on record to vote opposed. The segment went longer than thought so we’re breaking it into 2 parts, this episode has part 1. After that Braden talks about an uplifting movie that’s even family friendly. Then we have on Heretic Woman to tell us about herself and what she’s learned in studying Muhammed and the Quran. We wrap up with a good-feeling story about some common-sense regulation to curtail the ocean plastic crisis.

Braden doesn’t let Bryce fit a word in edgewise as we go through everything you need to know about Protect LDS Children and bishop’s interview policies. After a lengthy introduction, we hear from Sam Young on day 7 of his Hunger Strike and that is followed by a discussion with Nicole Jensen, a trauma and self-care advocate who works closely in the Post-Mormon community to help people process and understand the abuse that happens behind closed doors, one-on-one, in bishop’s offices. This episode is longer than our regular format, but it’s a dense story and requires a lot of information and time to properly dissect.

On this episode, we talk about the recent donation made by the Mormon Church to Affirmation, an LGBTQ+ support group in Utah. Turns out, the subject is much more nuanced than it initially seems. After that, we break down Joseph Smith with the help of the Armstrong Lectures and Braden conducts an interview about a recent documentary about LGBTQ+ issues and the Mormon Church. We wrap up with a heartwarming story about two people who got their degrees by helping each other.
