    I thoroughly enjoy listening to your podcast. I would like to take your suggestion and go back to the beginning of “The Year of Polygamy,” but I listen on my android device, and the RSS feed only goes back as far as Episode 34 – Fanny Young.

    Will you update the RSS feed to include episodes 1-33 so those of us who found you after you had already begun can go back and enjoy the early episodes? Thanks.

    On another note, I recently made a donation and hope everyone who listens will do the same. Let’s keep this going. Thanks for all the hard work.

    Oh, Lindsay – I’m just listening to the intro. I’ve been holding myself back from asking you if you would consider expanding the polygamy series and continue after 2014. I didn’t want to be obnoxious, so I hadn’t requested it yet! I love these episodes and I’m so happy you’re going to continue it!

    Also glad that you will be continuing on until next year! There is so much information and I’m glad you’re going to take your time.

    I would be thrilled if you would extend this series. This really doesn’t need to be hurried through and it has awakened a desire to research my own ancestors as well as this period of church history. I am learning so much. Please make it as long as you want. I am donating as I am able. I will try to keep doing so because this is one of my (not-so) guilty pleasures!

    Here is an idea, do a 20 – 30 minute episode each week, on women that were not married to “INFAMOUS” men, but coordinate it in such as way that there is a list of who is going to be recorded in like 3 weeks, so that people can research an ask around family members for stories that Lindsey or others may not know about.

    Also there are all those Oral interviews that were done for the Charles Red Center at BYU, where they collected oral interviews, from Children of the “Last Wave” polygamist, i.e. the Post 1890 Manifesto that moved to Canada and Mexico.

      Hey Perry, I helped type up many of those oral histories of children of polygamists when I worked at the Charles Redd Cemter back in the early 1980’s.

    I’m so glad your continuing past the first of the year. The stories are so fascinating. On another note… In her first picture on here, is that a cross necklace? If so, did they not care about that stuff back then like we do now? Just curious if we knew when it started when we didn’t wear crosses?
