I am super duper pleased to announce that Sunstone has officially launched its own blog and podcasts. 

In August, Mike Stevens (Board Chairman of the Sunstone Education Foundation) invited me to join the Sunstone board of directors.  As a member of the board, I volunteered to help Sunstone start its own blog and podcast(s)….and now we’ve arrived!

I will be producing (at least in the beginning) both the Sunstone Podcasts, as well as helping to coordinate the content on https://www.SunstoneBlog.com.

What does this mean for Mormon Stories? Not much, really–other than better, and better content.  While I am super excited to help grow the Sunstone online community, I feel strongly that there will always be a need for an open forum for LDS folk to tell their stories….and I hope to help ensure that this forum remains open for business.  Tight connections with the Sunstone community will only enhance the pool to draw from (in my humble estimation).

To learn more about Sunstone’s plans, check out Dan Wotherspoon’s initial posting right here: https://sunstoneblog.com/?p=8 

Thanks for checking in, and please stay tuned!!!!!

    Well done, John.

    I have been looking for a good way to listen to Sunstone during my 30 min commute. In the past, I had even resorted to downloading the mp3s from sunstoneonline. Having this content available in podcast format makes the process much more streamlined and is sincerely appreciated.

    I hope that this little experiment will be successful. You might consider doing things like hosting podcasts where listeners call in with their comments over skype to make things interactive.

    I have one piece of feedback on the Sunstone classics podcast. IMO, you should focus more on sessions that express a well articulated view on a specific topic and less on panel discussions and eulogies like the one you did for Benion. I think the latter is better suited for the symposia.

    Great feedback, Paul. We will definitely note, and adapt. Thanks so much for taking the time to write in. We’ll work to make sure you’re glad you did. :)
