    Jaw dropping interview.

    “Profoundly disappointing” that’s the money quote for so many reasons. I relate to Rod’s experience in a major way.

    Thanks so much to the Dehlins and Osbornes for producing and sharing this discussion! Listening was a captivating experience.

    Wow. If only everyone could have parents like the Osbornes. Just watched their documentary (after learning about it from the MS podcast). I’m still crying. Lots of love and gratitude to you, Rod and Nan! You have restored my faith in humanity.

    Excellent pair of episodes. Nan and Rod are both so thoughtful and articulate, and Margie and John did a great job hosting. What a story! I am so happy for the Osbornes. I wish them the best in their post-Mormon life.
