  1. Charismatic Joe indeed. Wow.

    It is surprising that individuals with high moral values can be persuaded to do immoral things so quickly — all because of a feeling. From where did this feeling come? What is the source?

    Sure, we live in interesting times, but things were not exactly boring a hundred and fifty years ago either.

    Very interesting podcast. You have a knack for finding the obscure.

    • Linda,
      I appreciate your comments. I think the difference between now and 150 years ago is that you had to be apart of these small crowds to know whats going on where as now you can watch the news or get on social media and see everything going on everywhere.

      I would have loved to be a fly on the wall of so many interactions!

  2. I do enjoy all your podcasts. I, too, have wanted to understand how Joseph Smith was able to draw so many people to him. Thanks for all your research!
