I recorded my first podcast in some time last night w/ professor, author and mother Joanna Brooks. Joanna was a very important figure in the uber-controversial BYU Academic Freedom days of 1990-1993…and is now a writer on Mormon topics for Religion Dispatches (along w/ being the Dept. Chair of English at SDSU). She was also recently featured on RadioWest to discuss the phenomenon of Glenn Beck.
This is part 1 of a 2 part interview. Please give a hearty Mormon Stories welcome to Dr./Sister/Mommy Joanna Brooks!
