These episodes of Mormon Stories include a recording of our live interview on 10/23/17 with renowned author, Dr. D. Michael Quinn, author of the final volume of the “Mormon Hierarchy” trilogy.  In his newest book, Wealth & Corporate Power, Michael provides a comprehensive look into how the LDS Church acquired wealth from the early days of the church until the 21st century.

We cover in detail:

  • How Michael was persuaded to expand the project from an appendix, to a full-fledged book
  • Michael’s meticulous methods in gathering and remembering information
  • His thoughts on the ethics of receiving “leaked” information, and whether he uses such information in his work
  • His observations in the changes of church financial strategy and salaries throughout the decades of church leadership
  • His views of the contemporary Mormon Church

…and so much more

Whether you love him, are troubled by him, or don’t quite know what to make of him, our listeners need to hear these episodes of Mormon Stories with Mike Norton—known frequently by his handle “NewNameNoah.”

Mike is recognized most for his covert actions in secretly recording the LDS temple ceremonies and posting video to YouTube so the general public can experience what members consider to be the most sacred ceremonies of the faith.  In addition to these videos, Mike has controversially forged and distributed temple recommends to others and in the past assumed an identity to become an active, temple-recommend holding member of the church.

Mike was also responsible for bringing international attention to the story of Savannah—the young woman who came out to her LDS congregation as lesbian during a fast and testimony meeting and had her microphone cut off by a male leader.  Our past interview with Savannah may be found here.

In these episodes, we explore Mike’s personal experience growing up as a member of the LDS Church and the agonizing faith crisis he experienced that serves as the impetus for his controversial tactics.  We discuss those tactics in detail, and then embark on an important conversation dealing with the ethics and effectiveness of these methods—weaving Mike’s story into the greater narrative about how change is made in the LDS Church.
