I've been really enjoying the Year of Polygamy podcast recently and highly recommend it to anyone interested in the subject. The woman who does it has done some great interviews lately, including a recent one with a current FLDS member. I'd be really curious to see what you all think of that one in particular, because there were definitely moments that annoyed me because it seemed to glorify the FLDS.

I've liked the early podcasts on the wives of Joseph Smith but I haven't had time to listen to anything recently.

As mentioned in the Lyle Jeffs thread, I'm going to start listening, starting at the top.  This is a real treasure trove of information and experiences!

It's a really great and informative podcast! Sooo much history.

That was my first pod cast.  I just listened to it on the Web page sound bar.  Now I've got to figure out how to download and listen on my phone.

Someone mentioned this podcast recently on another thread (don't recall where) and I just listened to the episode featuring Brady Williams of "My Five Wives" yesterday...I have to admit that, of all of the polygamists on all of the shows over the past few years, he and his family were my favorites, and I actually find him quite appealing (intellectually, emotionally and physically). 

This interview from last year includes his thoughts on the concept of "progressive/feminist polygamy," and though I'm an childfree-by-choice atheist and can't imagine sharing a husband or having any (much less a passel of) kids, I liked what he had to say about the destructiveness of patriarchy and fundamentalism. 

Looking forward to listening to other episodes of the podcast, as I find the topic interesting.

Just reporting back; have listened to several more episodes, including the two-parter about polygamy deniers, and am really enjoying the podcast. If you're interested in this topic - either historical polygamy or modern-day, definitely check this out.

I’ve been listening for a few months. I’m on episode 110 about the UEP. It’s helping me understand my ancestors perspective on how they lived polygamy.

This year has been particularly difficult for me and both Free Jinger and the YoP podcast have provided great distractions. After first listening to quite a few recent episodes, I have gone back to the beginning, and have really enjoyed it. (Incidently, I have no connection to Mormonism; just love history, and the sociology of religion, and women's rights, so this stuff is fascinating to me.)

      So excited, happy. Finally I got my vaccination appointment. The first on the 26th of May , the second on my birthday.  Staying at home is no option, because I work in healthcare, with very close patientcontact. (I make mammograms). Hopefully I can relax a bit more after my vaccination and let the anxiety go.

      My uncle just died from COVID. He wasn’t that much older than I am, so I kind of grew up with him. Just ten days ago my mom had been pleading with him to get vaccinated, but he wanted to wait to make sure the shots were really safe. I’m kind of devastated.

      I just found out my little bonus kid is in a treatment center on a suicide watch tonight. He and I share a hobby and a couple weeks back he opened up to me that he's severely depressed and was wanting to hurt himself. I let his parents know and thankfully he had also been talking to them. I'm just heartbroken because him being in this center means that his parents had to call 911 and have him admitted and I know that was so hard for them to do. He's a young kid and has his whole life ahead of him but just wants to end it all and I don't know how to help him.

      Middle aged woman with mommy issues...but missing her today.
      She got so much wrong with me, but she had the best intentions and tried so hard. 
      She got so much right, too.  I forget that sometimes.  Sometimes I remember and dismiss it out of spite.  
      “They did the best they could with the tools they had.”  I forgot where I first heard that but I’ve carried it with me like a mantra since my parents passed.   They truly did.  Whatever else was missing, whatever I needed that they couldn’t give, the love was always there.  

      Always. 
      That’s something.
      My confidence in my own abilities.  Faith in my own power.  My own strength.  They gave me that, too.
      That’s also something.  
      They’re why I’m messed up, but they’re also why I’m okay.  
       
      Shit’s complicated.
      She died before I figured out how smart she really was.  Sad thing is I don’t think ever figured that out for herself.  
      Ignore me - just crying in my car waiting to pick up my son.

      The nice thing about posting about Jewish history is how quickly it flushes out the antisemites. 😘

      It's Friday so yay!  But sweet Jesus I need it to be the end of the day already.  Crappy week and I'm so ready for it to be over.
