For our tenth episode, Cody teams up with Bryce Blakenagel of the Naked Mormonism Podcast, exploring evidence of psychedelic/entheogenic/sacramental drug use by the early Mormon church.. This is part one of a two part series, in which Cody and Bryce read and dissect a research paper they've been working on regarding this theory. Both episodes are quite lengthy, so we forgo our new segments and dive DEEP into this groundbreaking new interpretation of Mormon history.
Cody and Bryce will be presenting this hypothesis at the 2017 Sunstone Symposium in Salt Lake City Utah on July the 29th. Please join us in Salt Lake City should you find yourself in the area.
