Episode #248 – Braving the Woes of Women

Big news on the BYU/CES/Seminary curricula front. More topics-based classes are being formulated over the traditional chronological slog through a book. Good? Bad? What’s your take?

Other news: Why aren’t kids going to youth dances? General Women’s Meeting is now officially part of General Conference. Meet the Mormons continues its box office drop. Horror Mormons!
