Author and founder of The Mormon Women Project Neylan McBaine joins us in the studio this week to talk about her new book, Women at Church: Magnifying LDS Women’s Local Impact, as well as a lengthy discussion on gender issues in the Church.

David Burton will now head up the Utah Transit Authority’s Board, giving him free FrontRunner use all the live-long day; a missionary wins his lawsuit against a musk ox; Mormons using social media to push back on so-called antiquated Church policies; and MORMONS VS ZOMBIES.
