An Evolving Kinship

In our first two episodes of the second season of Strangers No More, we explore the times and history around the Doctrine and Covenants 94 through 101.

With a much quicker pace than we had settled into for our first season, each episode is finished within 35 minutes, after exploring many topics around the Come Follow Me handbook suggested readings.

With the addition of Kate Mower’s segment, “Queering the Scriptures,” which allow for a deeper dive into the history of our canonized books, and Bradley Talbot’s “On The Record,” all of the hosts are learning and teaching one another at a rapid pace.

The first episode for our fall season is Zion is The Pure in Heart- Come Follow Me (Doctrine and Covenants 94-97) Strangers No More SNM S2 E1.

In this episode, the hosts discuss what it means to be “pure in heart.”


In our second episode of Season Two, a lively discussion starts about what kinship systems can mean after Maggie goes down a rabbit hole in a exploration of Doctrine and Covenants 99.

Be Still: Kinship & Murdock Family- Come Follow Me 2021 (D & C 98-101) Strangers No More SNM S2 E2 explores a bit of Murdock family history and extended kinship systems as they relate to polygamy.


Towards Becoming One: May

This month has been intense over here in Strangers No More land!

After Maggie was involved in some recreational listening to other podcasts, she reached out to the Dialogue Podcast Network and within a week, we had joined up as part of the team!

Bradley graduated from BYU (Congratulations Bradley!!!) and, not to be dissuaded by statistics, he had his first job that required his degree BEFORE he walked with that piece of paper. We are all so proud to know such a wonderful person who is not only driven to his own success, but feels called to teach us all in his spare time.

Bradley shared his successes as well as many other gems in these episodes.

Dennis has been taking literary agent to a missionary level, as he mixes his faith with his career, and he has been sharing his successes and trials in these recordings.

Andrew has been keeping things close to his vest, while sharing some critical lessons.

And finally, Maggie is still try to focus on finishing her first book, The Car That Ran on Prayers, but has been distracted by some recent new diagnoses. She shared about those in the following episodes.

Without further adieu, here are May’s first two episodes:

The residual of May’s episodes have been recorded and will be posted as soon as they are processed.
