Excellent and Thorough Historical Review
This examination of the death of American Prophet, Joseph Smith, is a thorough and interesting exploration of the cultural and historical setting of the American frontier and the implications of the growth of the Latter-day Saint movement, and how these two incompatible forces eventually battled to the death. It's well researched, well written, and well performed. If you're a fan of Dan Carlin's Hardcore History and interested in frontier America or Mormonism, add this podcast to your list. Three episodes in and I'm constantly checking for the next one to be released! Bravo!
