This episode explores the beliefs and practices of a church with over 14 million members. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (The Mormons) is, according to the National Council of Churches, the fourth largest Christian denomination in the United States.
It also finds itself constantly in the headlines over things like secret handshakes, magic underwear (temple garments), polygamy, racism, child abuse, a billion-dollar tax-free bank account and a planet called Kolob. Our special guest is David Fitzgerald, author of the new book in the series, The Complete Heretic's Guide to Western Religion, "The Mormons." (Book available now on Amazon http://www.amazon.com/Complete-Heretics-Guide-Western-Religion/dp/1482773341) Plus your calls and emails.

Every Friday evening at 9pm est. Jan Eberle's Swing Museum.
The Swing Museum with Jan Eberle celebrates the very best of Big Band, Standards and Jazz. As a "second generation-er" and performer (daughter of big band singing balladeer, Ray Eberle and niece of baritone crooner, Bob Eberly), I've been blessed with a unique understanding and incredible passion for this Era. One of the things I enjoy most about this show is bringing snippets of history and rare tidbits about the artists and music... some personal.

L.D.C. Fitzgerald is the author of “SAVING JACKIE K,” a thrilling adventure to rescue the First Lady. In writing a story with an unexpected twist on the Kennedy Conspiracy, Fitzgerald relentlessly researched the facts regarding the JFK assassination, and wove them into a fictional world.
The author name L.D.C. Fitzgerald is, in fact, a pseudonym representing the combined talents of two writers: Lisa D. and Dave C.

Dave, a self-educated computer geek, has been selling his soul to corporate America for over a quarter century.
SAVING JACKIE K is a thrilling adventure to rescue the First Lady. In writing a story that involves an unexpected twist on the Kennedy Conspiracy, we relentlessly researched the facts regarding the JFK Assassination, and wove them into a fictional world. We consulted with renowned conspiracy experts, and scouted the hallowed grounds in Dallas. Where does the fact end and the fiction begin? As we like to say, "Everything in our novel is true, except the stuff we made up."
The novel has achieved 4+ star ratings on both Amazon and Barnes & Noble. SAVING JACKIE K achieved a top 5 sales ranking for Kindle's Action & Adventure books, and top 10 for Thriller books. It also reached a top 100 ranking for Conspiracy Theory books. It is selling in the US, Canada, Europe, Australia and other locations internationally.
Barry FitzGerald, a veteran ghost-hunter with over two decades of experience in paranormal investigating, is memorable to Ghost Hunters fans for his work on TAPS' investigations in Europe, during the show's third season. Now, as a member of the new GHI team, Barry supplies his expertise in both ghost-hunting as well as his knowledge of the historical locations of each new investigation.
Haunted by supernatural events he experienced as a child growing up in Ireland, Barry developed an interest in paranormal research and went on to work for two different paranormal groups based in Northern Ireland. He now dedicates much of his time to the development of new investigative techniques and research methods.
A lifetime resident of Ireland, Barry previously worked as the warden for the Southern Education and Library Board, where he arranged weekends away for youths and worked on conflict issues and cross-border projects, allowing communities from either side of the cultural divide in Northern Ireland to work together and develop friendships. He is also an avid writer and cook.
Weddings aren’t getting kitschier, they’re getting more personal, says Jeri Fitzgerald of Celebrations by Design. “We’re seeing more and more themed events. But these aren’t just what you’d think, like Renaissance or Halloween. It’s more themed around what the couple is about,” she tells Women Enjoying Success host Sharon Michaels. “If they enjoy wine and travel to Italy and France and Napa Valley here in the U.S., their table décor may center on pictures of different vineyards they’ve visited and wines they’ve collected. And maybe the gifts they give to guests are corks with their names embossed on them.”
Please join us 4/28/13, 7 - 7:45 pm EST (6 PM CST), as Tiferet Host Melissa Studdard, and Guest Co-Host, Tiferet Associate Editor, R Jeffreys, speak with the fabulous literary duo, poets Hélène Cardona and John FitzGerald.
In addition to writing poetry, Cardona is an actor, translator, teacher, and dream analyst. She is the author of the just released, bilingual poetry collection Dreaming My Animal Selves, as well as The Astonished Universe and Life in Suspension. Of Cardona’s Dreaming My Animal Selves, Jean Houston says, “In this extraordinary volume of soul crafted poetry, words become wands to enchant and evoke our better selves.”
FitzGerald, in addition to writing poetry, is a novelist, editor, and lawyer. He is the author of Telling Time by the Shadows; The Mind; and the novel in verse, Spring Water, which was a Turning Point Books prize selection in 2005. His fourth collection, Favorite Bedtime Stories, is forthcoming from Salmon Poetry in 2014. Robert Nazarene says that FitzGerald’s Spring Water is “to poetry what The Silence of the Lambs is to filmdom: a harrowing, narrative trip that makes for an absolutely compelling read...brilliantly delivered by one of America's most promising new poets."
