    Season One Finale for The Chosen Ones

    Season One Finale for The Chosen Ones

    As we last left off on The Chosen Ones, we began to take a deeper dive into the groups Lori and Chad were affiliated with. This included The Church of the Firstborn, Preparing a People, and Another Voice of Warning or better known as AVOW.
    While each group has an underlining theme of Mormonism, there are still many questions lingering about their beliefs, their intentions, and most importantly, their members. We’ve examined the major key players in the Vallow and Daybell cases and next season, we will review these specific groups. Now, in today’s episode, we take a quick glimpse into these groups and we recently learned of an intriguing tip that may lead us down a path to more discovery.

Smelling colors . . .

The condition occurs from increased communication between sensory regions and is involuntary, automatic, and stable over time. While synesthesia can occur in response to drugs, sensory deprivation, or brain damage, research has largely focused on heritable variants comprising roughly 4% of the general population

Glad you’re back!

Ok

This story is crazy and definitely interesting to hear...I just don’t love the outline/layout/style of this podcast. It’s basically just one person reading the whole story, and the details are repeated verbatim in several episodes, so it feels redundant. There’s not a lot of interview or media from any other sources, just Celene saying over and over “quote...end quote”. It just feels kind of dry.
