This is an odd set of revelations. The first one is addressed to Parley P. Pratt and Ziba Peterson, telling them to go preach to the Natives on the border with the Lamanites in Missouri. The second one is addressed to Northrop Sweet and Ezra Thayre, telling them to go preach to the Natives on the border with the Lamanites in Missouri; but, the second one is WAAAAAY BETTER!!! The first section is 5 verses long and ends with a pathetic 1 “Drink!” while the second section talks about thrusting sickles, filling open mouths, and referencing the Book of Mormon, all while nearly murdering our livers with 20 “Drinks!” Why would these two revelations be telling different people to do the same thing, yet sound so different in doing so?

To get us started, a bunch of different revelations to the Whitmer brothers are combined into one. David is told to stick around, while the others are told to go out on a mission. After that, Thomas Marsh is called to be a physician to the church, AND ONLY THE CHURCH, even if that means ignoring the wishes of his family.

The show has found a new host, and I couldn't be happier! I love you already Marie, and can't wait for you and Bryce to start the next chapter of the show. As a Mymo, I love the wild and crazy journey that we've already been through and can't wait to find out what happens next. Thank you Marie and Bryce for making sure that journey didn't end. I can guarantee I'll never miss an episode. All the best.
David Michael, Former Host of the My Book of Mormon Podcast
The time has come for David Michael to say goodbye. Hopefully the show will live on, but sadly, it will have to continue without the original host.
I can't thank all the Mymos enough for everything you've done to make the show what it has become. You will always hold a special place in my heart.
Have a beer on me
In this one we learn all about the many resurrection events in our very near future (literally, any hour!). And then we find out that Jesus only has so many passes into heaven he can give away, so you'd better stay on his good side!
“Drink!” Count –29
About 5 beers
We first learn that Jesus doesn't really care what you eat or drink during sacrament, as long as you're really serious about it. Then we learn all about some evil devil stones that are giving off evil revelations! Finally, we are introduced to our first bonafide mormon missionaries!

Right out of the gate, god confirms that Joe did indeed write the Book of Mormon himself (turns out it wasn't Mormon writing it after all!). But then things start looking up for Joe when he is told by the big man upstairs that he doesn't actually have to work anymore. Then we get our first revelation given directly to a woman, and it's pretty much as misogynistic as you'd expect.

Ever wondered what a cult looks like when it's first born? Well you're in luck because we get to watch a real life cult birth (and it ain't pretty)!

First of all, sorry that this one came out a week late, I promise to catch up next week. Anyway, here we get to the long awaited Section 20! Ever wanted to know that exact words to say during a baptism that can never ever be altered? (Spoiler alert, they're already altered) Or hear David stumble his way through a sacrament blessing? Well then you're in for a good one. Oh yeah, and this is the longest episode this show has ever released (oops).
"Drink!" Count - Basically none
This one starts out a bit confusing as even the D&C itself can't figure out when Section 19 was actually written (or should I say, "Revelated"). Then Christ goes into a full on rap battle, with himself. And of course, we learn how much god is ready to exquisitely punish Martin Harris if he doesn't give Joe all his earthly possessions.

And thank you to everyone that voted for the show in the 2015 Brodie Awards! The show took the Brodie for "Best Scripture Study Blog/Site/Channel/Podcast" (two years in a row!)
God (or Jesus, still not sure which is which) gives some revelating to Joe, David, and Ollie, and basically tells them a bunch of stuff they should already know. Then they get some homework as they have to find 12 superheroes that are going to save all the souls of the earth. And as a final footnote, we find out that women will be allowed in heaven. Who knew?

And don't forget to vote for the show for the 2015 Brodie Awards! My Book of Mormon Podcast has been nominated for two categories: Best Scripture Study Blog/Site/Channel/Podcast & Best Scripture-Study Piece. Voting ends on February 5, 2016, so don't delay!
This is just a fun conversation with David and Bryce, with a tiny bit of D&C reading in between.

In this one, Joe starts getting the hang of 'revelating', and he starts handing out revelations to everyone like candy. The only problem is, he's giving them all the same revelation (womp, womp). Then we get another mysterious chapter that magically appeared sometime after the original Book of Commandments was published. Let's see if we can find out how or why it's there!

For the first time ever, David and Bryce record live and in person! It's so moving that even god cries! And, since it's been a long time since you've gotten a "druken episode", it felt like time to play along to the drinking game (WARNING: Probably unsafe to play along at home).
First, God takes out an insurance policy to proactively damn anyone that messes with those pesky 116 pages. Then, Jesus steps in and goes on and on with his heavenly caller ID until he messes up and makes a statement that proves beyond a doubt that everything we're reading isn't true!

And thanks to all the Mymos that contributed to the 24 Hour Broadcastaton for the Secular Student Alliance! My thanks to Dogma Debate for hosting such a great event every year. I'm honored to have been a part of it.

Poor ol' Oliver. God gives him a gift, then snatches it away. I'm still not sure if he knows what he's supposed to do. Also, we have some confusion about what the gift was in the first place. It was either some sort of rod, or a male human. See if you can figure it out!

For the 100th episode, we are joined by Chuck and Matt from the 'Irreligiosophy' Podcast. Since they were kind enough to have me on as a guest when the show was just starting out, it was overdue to have them on. In this 'revelation' we learn that Oliver is quite gifted, and that's about it. But there's plenty of history packed into this one, along with plenty of drinking!
“Drink” Count – 32

This one is almost 2 hours long (hopefully that's a blessing and not a curse). It's like 2 episodes in 1! Anyway, we start out with a message to Ol' Joe's dad, and then Martin Harris orders his own revelation from on-demand. And then we find out that the LDS church didn't really like everything god originally told Joe and had to make some "updates".
“Drink” Count – 22
Let's call it 4 beers
Breaking news! We have no officially added 'Behold' to the drinking game, which is just in time because without it there would have been no drinks in this whole episode! Section 2 comes and goes in a blink of an eye, and not much is said. Then we get Section 3 which is basically god scolding ol Joe for being stupid enough to lose 114 pages of his 'sacred work'. Oh, and we also find out which auto insurance company god works for.
“Drink” Count – 5 (Almost one beer)
So, God is super pissed off at the humans in this one, but we never really figure out why. And we're told to obey commandments, but sadly we're given nothing about what those commandments are.

I'm back!! Sorry to all the Mymos for the long wait. But good news, I'm pleased to introduce the show's new co-host: Bryce Blankenagel from the Naked Mormonism Podcast! I'm so happy to have him on-board!
In this episode Bryce and I unintentionally stumble across some major discrepancies between the original publication of the D&C and the most recent version. Then after a rather comical introduction, we follow Jesus on his tour of the US Northeast and then the Midwest, with some rather odd stops along the way (at one point Jesus is in prison?!?).
By popular demand, Roman is back! This time we tackle Lehi's wild dreams, Nephi's awesome ship building, and Roman even does a live test of the Liahona to see how well it works in real life!
THE FINAL EPISODE OF THE PRICEY PEARL! WOOT!! Basically what happens is that we learn about the checklist of insanity that every Mormon has to swear that they believe. I think there's only one "article of faith" that I agreed with; the rest are either weird, inexplicable, confusing, or just plain hilarious.
“Drink” Count – BYOB (technically, no drinks)
David's son Roman tackles the children's version of The Book of Mormon, and he comes to some unique conclusions to describe what in the world is going on. By popular request, this has been made into a standalone episode. Please leave your comments if you'd like to hear more episodes like this. Enjoy!
WARNING: If you've already listened to Episodes 90 & 91, then you won't find any new content here, this is just Part 1 and 2 compiled together as a standalone episode.
This starts off with a big copy/paste from Episode 1, but once we get through that the fun starts. God, the Holy Ghost, and John the Baptist all show up and start handing out priesthoods like candy. Then we get to meet some new characters like Martin, Oliver, the Professor, and Mary Ann (ok fine, not Mary Ann), and they've got some tales to tell too.
“Drink” Count – BYOB (technically, no drinks)
What could be more fun than listening to the young Joseph Smith whining about how much people picked on him for babbling on about visions? Well, maybe another clip of the very popular Roman taking a crack at the Book of Mormon Stories!
