Mormons & The Mailbag

Apr 07, 2018, 06:05 PM

This week, Nish is back! But it's Amy's turn to take the week off. 

It was a big week for the LDS Church - sustaining a new prophet, appointments of new apostles, and some big structural shifts in how they do ministry. To break down the changes, as well as how the Mormon church handles racism and the #MeToo movement, Nish interviews Janan Graham-Russell, a writer, religion scholar, PhD candidate at Harvard, and practicing Mormon to break down the latest. 

For the second half of the show, Nish answers listener questions! Everything from the Americans with Disabilities Act to practical tips when moving your family to a different state - it all makes an appearance. 

We'll be back to regularly-scheduled programming next week with breaking down the news, Amy's latest piece for the NY Times Sunday Review, and what will likely be a colossal scream-fest during Three Minutes of Nish.
