In the aftermath of the LDS Church's first major business meeting Joseph Smith continues to solve short-term problems by sending everyone to Missouri. We spend the first half of the episode talking about why the entire country was moving to Missouri because of the absolutely horrid Indian Removal Act just put into place by President Jackson. The Mormons didn't do anything to influence or support this act! They sure do benefit from it though (in the short-term, at least).

Read about the Indian Removal Act and Andrew Jackson's positive spin: https://www.loc.gov/rr/program/bib/ourdocs/Indian.html

Presidential is a brilliant podcast by Lillian Cunningham at the Washington Post, so wander on over and listen all about Andrew Jackson: https://www.washingtonpost.com/graphics/business/presidential-podcast/

Drink count - 10, or about a beer and a half, but really, just drink 10 beers!

The first ever Big Important Business Meeting of the newly formed church has concluded. Joseph revelates 33 of his VIPs right out into the wilderness (Missouri), and lets us know that another Big Important Business Meeting will happen out there, eventually, when they get around to it. Rejoice, they're about to take the land of their inheritence from the people who have lived on the promised land for that last millenia! Wait, perhaps rejoicing in the future takeover of Native American lands shouldn't be rejoiced about? Oh man, American history is ugly AF.

Drink count - 11 (or about a beer and half)

Edson Fuller and his religiously enthusiastic buddies are described in detail at https://history.lds.org/article/doctrine-and-covenants-religious-enthusiasm?lang=eng

David Michael returns! We learn that if you're supposed to give everything to the church, and if you're bad then you lose access to all the stuff you gave away. So... be good?

Drink count - 2 (which is good, because we were very hungover)

Andrew Torrez is a wonderfully good sport and can be heard on Opening Arguments Podcast at openargs.com

We address the controversy we accidentally started in episode 130, D&C section 46 (oops!). So, should we start a Comments Section discussion at the start of each episode? Email me, let me know at comments@mybookofmormonpodcast.com.

Section 50: Joseph lets us all know that everyone needs to calm down with the revelations and spiritual phenomena. False spirits aren't good, y'all, you need to stick with the true spirits that come from God, and Joseph is here to tell us how.

Drink count - 14, or about two beers
