    Hi John. This episode (1754) is not listed on your podcast (on apple). Don’t know if that is an oversight.

      We are a bit behind on the audio. Thanks for reaching out! Hopefully should be there by tonight!

    The next time you all do a podcast like this, you might consider providing a summary of the alleged crime up front, so that people have some idea of where this is going.

    Hi Maven and Mormon Stories! Wondering if the rest of the trial will be discussed on a new episode? Fingers crossed. :)
