The Two Best Podcasts I’ve Ever Heard

On the commute in to work, it is nice to listen to something uplifting.  Though there is a lot of great music available, there are also some wonderful podcasts.  I’d like to take a minute to share two that have brought tears to my eyes, they’ve been so incredible.

The first is called “Classic Speeches.”  With selections as far back as 1950, this podcast features the best speeches given in recent Church history.  At first, I attempted to make a note of which ones were the best.  Noticing that I was writing down virtually every one, I abandoned that idea.  Some of the most memorable and doctrinally rich speeches from the latter half of the 20th century and the first part of this one are all packed into this marvelous podcast.

The second is called “Legacy.”  The approach this one takes is to cover as many aspects of history that involve the Church or Church members as possible.  The episodes feature guests who have a particular area of expertise.  They then discuss many things that some folks may not know with regards to that specialty.  For example, there was an episode about Palmyra, New York.  There have been episodes about the Nauvoo Temple, the Pioneers coming across the plains, Saints who have served at war, how the Church preserves old manuscripts, the Church History Library, and a whole slew of other topics.

From these two podcasts I have learned a great many things of which I was not previously aware.  They are full of insightful and uplifting content.  They are of much benefit to anyone seeking excellent podcasts relating to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.  Links to these podcasts and many others are available from the Audiovisual section of ldsscripturestudy.com.

The Work Continues

Just about seven major events such as holidays and birthdays have taken up a bunch of time in the past two months.  It’s incredible how much time important things take up these days!
This past week we were working on some design mock-ups of how the Gospel Study Journal will look.  Though it is taking longer than expected, the design looks nice.  We want to provide something that is very simple to use, is visually appealing, and yet is able to do everything it is meant to.
Expect regular posts from now on, as the Christmas Holiday rush is now behind us.


I can’t wait to share with you some of the wonderfully uplifting and educational podcasts that I’ve been listening to on my way to and from work. I’ll write a post on the two that have been the most thought-provoking, educational, and inspirational in the next couple of posts.  It would be impossible to relate all of the new and wonderful things I have learned by listening to them.
