We can do this simply because we acknowledge the fact that each of us KNOWS VERY LITTLE. In fact, we likely know a lot less than we think we do. Perhaps that rings true for you as well.   We believe in both vulnerability and respect.  We also believe in entertainment... and hope you find the Eye of the Storm to be exactly that. So please, join the conversation!

    EPISODE 8: THE MORMON CHURCH's RESPONSE TO RACISM | Eye of the Storm

    EPISODE 8: THE MORMON CHURCH's RESPONSE TO RACISM | Eye of the Storm

    SEASON 2, BABY!   ...ok, more like a hiatus for 2,020 reasons...  In this, our 8th Episode, Zac, Jordan, Brian and Spencer discuss the LDS Church's history with race, and the approach now.  We delve into how a prophet, who is said to speak for the church on behalf of Jesus Christ (his church), could have very racist leanings.  Does that discredit him?  Does it discredit the entire church??  Let us know your thoughts in the comments below!  Also, we have a new Producer, Scott Parker, who is doing excellent work already. Thanks Scotty!
