Mormon Stories listeners — today I wanted to introduce you to (again) one of the brightest young minds and most vibrant spirits I’ve encountered within Mormonism — Ashley Sanders. Some of you will recognize Ashley from a previous Mormon Stories episode. Others might recognize her name — as being one of the principal organizers for BYU’s alternative commencement. Regardless — Ashley has an amazing gift of expression, and an ardent passion for social commentary and cultural/political activism within Mormonism.
Why am I telling you all this? In cooperation with Mormon Stories and Sunstone, I am proud to announce that Ashley has recently launched her own, new podcast — patterned (at least in part) after the NPR program “This American Life.” The podcast is entitled “Project Deseret — and you can check it out here.”
Please check it out, and if you enjoy — consider supporting Ashley in one of a couple of ways:
- Making a small donation to help Ashley pay for her podcast setup costs (equipment, etc.). You can do this by clicking the Donate button at the top right of the projectdeseret.com web site.
- Or you can leave a note of encouragement by commenting at her blog projectdeseret.com, or by sending her an email directly at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Finally, to subscribe to this new podcast, just click the “subscribe via itunes” button, also at the top right of the projectdeseret.com web site. This will obviously require you to install iTunes.
Thanks again for your support of this rising young talent within Mormonism!
