Angels and Seerstones: A Latter Day Saint Folklore Podcast

Angels and Seerstones: A Latter Day Saint Folklore Podcast

Latter-day Saints are a people of radical faith. Their tradition is one in which angels visit everyday people and sometimes men and women see the divine in stones. In this podcast we examine the lived religion of Latter-day Saints, the stories we tell, and the beliefs we debate. Join Christine and Chris Blythe, professional folklorists and LDS converts who openly profess their faith while exploring the traditions of their chosen people.
