Episode 50

Mind-blowing New Archeology of the Mountain Meadows Massacre

On this episode of Mormonish Podcast, Rebecca and Landon interview the amazing Geoff Pingree, Emmy award winning documentary filmmaker, National Geographic photographer, writer, and Professor of Cinema Studies at Oberlin College. Geoff's journey from valedictorian at BYU and one of the founders of Provo's 7th East Press to post Mormon filmmaker, photographer, and professor, is absolutely fascinating. Many of you may have already heard of, or watched his wonderful documentary film, "The Return of Elder Pingree: Memoir of a Departed Mormon," which has had such an impact in the post Mormon world. In our interview, Geoff discusses his time at BYU and especially his close relationship with Eugene England who was later forced out of BYU. His circle included members of the September 6 and others in the intellectual underground at that time. We were absolutely riveted as we listened to Geoff discuss his life, his journey, and more. We know you'll love getting to know Geoff better and be as fascinated as we were with his story.
