Fascinating History Podcast

Excellent historical podcast describing interesting and dramatic stories from a legal perspective. Gives better context of the issues that define the conflicts and challenges colonial Mormonism had on the broader society and its reaction in response. Helps make better sense of our history and the perceptions others have on LDS religious movements. I recommend the podcast as professional, in-depth, relevant, and well told. Love it!
