This is FairMormon’s Front Page News Review podcast, where we provide context and analysis of the past week’s media coverage of Mormons and the LDS church. The show is hosted by Nick Galieti and manager of the FairMormon Front Page news service, Cassandra Hedelius.
We hope this will be an edifying and entertaining experience. What we present is not to be understood as being the official position of FairMormon or The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. We speak for ourselves, and sometimes not even then.
