Introducing ‘Mormon Land’ — a new podcast about life in and around the LDS Church

(Chris Detrick | The Salt Lake Tribune) Mormons walk around Temple Square before the afternoon session of the 186th LDS General Conference at the Conference Center in Salt Lake City Saturday April 2, 2016.

We’re excited to announce a new podcast produced by The Salt Lake Tribune — “Mormon Land.”

On “Mormon Land,” award-winning religion reporter Peggy Fletcher Stack, Managing Editor David Noyce and Editor Jennifer Napier-Pearce will dive into the culture, personalities, developments, trends and policies that affect members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints — and Utahns in general.

They’ll be joined regularly by special guests, exploring everything from caffeine popping up at BYU to racist slurs being whispered at church. Aging apostles. Shifting demographics. The return of LDS feminists. The explosion of Mormon cinema. Even missionary folklore — they’re all fair game.

The first episode features guest Tom Christofferson, a gay Mormon and the brother of LDS apostle D. Todd Christofferson.
