WAHOO! It’s that time of year again. Time for our last episode of the year because we’ve finished off everything for the year and we want to have some fun. And that fun is BOOKS, of course! Well, this time books, movies, TV shows, and video games. We each brought three for you. Shannon brought three books to movie adaptations and Bryce brought three games to movie/TV series adaptations. We had some fun and hope you do too! And Happy Holidays to all of you!

That’s right! We’re done!! But we have to get through the final 3 chapters before rounding it out and providing our conclusions. The new authoritative history of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is mostly what we expected; New Mormon History is dead and Saints: The Standard of Truth telegraphs an era of academic retrenchment. These chapters cover the assassination of Hyrum and Joseph Smith in Carthage and the immediate aftermath and succession crisis to get the church into the hands of Bloody Brigham Young. This has been a big project so if you’re a patron of the show who supported the project, check your feed for a special post for my entire 200+ pages of show notes generated for these episodes. Apologies in advance for all the typos. #TeamBryce, signing off.

We’re in tunnel-vision mode until we finish this propagandistic pile of rubbish. Today is the penultimate episode of our long-form review of Saints. It begins in the spring of 1842 with John C. Bennett’s violent departure from Nauvoo and ends with the destruction of the Nauvoo Expositor. Lots of things happen in this 2-year period and the book ignores most of them so let’s dive in. We do finish the episode with a tiny bit of happy news to keep us all positive as well as an update about the ongoing ExMo Candle Co Destroying Angel battle for the best scent. Patreon listeners get a tease for our next book review so be sure to tune in to the exclusive feed!

AT LONG LAST! We’re joined by Jen from ExMo Candle Co. to talk all about her experience and what led her to processing and healing from the Mormon cult through blasphemous candles! She tells of her story with the church, attending a Mormon university, depression and self-destruction caused by shame through bishop’s interviews and “repentance”, and how she navigated her way out of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Of course, she also announces the debut of a new candle… well TWO candles to be more accurate. After that we talk Death to Smoochy, a Robin Williams and Edward Norton flick directed by Danny DeVito. We wrap with happy news about rebuilding underwater reefs and a bit of listener mail.
