    Are there any groups where people discuss the current episodes? I’m still back in the 2015 episodes, but occasionally my podcast app loses my spot and takes me to a new episode.

    This one was so gross! Young is so man-centric, or at least self-centered. Polygamy is good for MEN because they get more SONS (not daughters). It’s like he barely even remembers that women exist or are affected by polygamy.

    At one point, he says he’s sad when he sees a man with no progeny. All the men can’t have progeny because you and your buddies took all the women, Brigham!! What do the demographics show in early Utah? Were there a lot of men who were never able to get married because of polygamy?

    He also talks about men not being able to care for their families. I’m curious how his best friend, Heber Kimball, would take these kind of sermons. Did Heber think he was doing just fine taking care of his family, despite them living in poverty?
