    I have a copy of the Revelation Owen Allred received that was mentioned by Moroni Jessop. Should I post it here?

    Lindsay, Tom Greene is now a member of the Kingston group, he is still around and active in the Order.

    Lindsay’s attempt to place Mormonism within the broader frame of the American culture of the time is priceless, and something we often fail to do in Mormon studies.

    Since the episode talks about the civil rights movement and mentions Ross LeBaron, I’d like to point out Ross LeBaron’s unique response to the civil rights legislation, as expressed in this “Manifesto”: https://goo.gl/ZQMtSr

    I appreciate the respectful tone of Moroni’s presentation on the LeBaron claims (especially given the poorly-researched episode 76 of this podcast). However, there are some historical inaccuracies, such as his portrait of Robert Black’s “World Council of Patriarchs”, which most Ross LeBaron’s followers probably never heard about.

    Looking forward to the next episodes!

      Thanks for the clarification, Antonio. As I pointed out, I am not an expert. I merely facilitated the meeting with Robert, which in turn led me to be asked to do the lead-in.

    Could you do an episode on homeschooling in both polygamous and monogamous mormon fundamentalists? I grew up in the monogamous Mormon fundamentalist homeschool movement. I’m curious what the differences are in leadership, curriculum, conferences, and teachings. Thanks for all your work!

    Can you also explore the intellectual/priesthood lineage/authority from Cleon Skousen to people like Oliver DeMille, Glenn Kimber, and Aneladee Milne? These were big figures of my childhood. There are families from other states using their vacations to attend homeschooling conferences in Utah. There’s also some connection to doomsday peppers.

      Are there any connections to the quiverfull or other fundamentalist Christian homeschooling movements?

    I am honored to be mentioned here. But I am not that great, just trying to do what is right.

    Hi Lindsay – The rise of the New Right was a symptom of the rise of the radical Left. Not the other way around. Great podcast!!
