The Great Land Deeds Debate with Michelle Stone and Bill Reel

In this episode of Mormonish Podcast, Rebecca and Landon are joined by Michelle Stone and Bill Reel to discuss land deeds transferred by Joseph Smith to various individuals in Nauvoo.

Both Michelle (132 Problems) and Bill Reel (Mormon Discussions) have produced multiple podcasts on this topic and approach it from different points of view.

There's a lot to be gained from a dialogue like this as we learn more about each perspective. We'd like to thank Bill and Michelle for bringing their insights and knowledge to Mormonish! We learned quite a bit!
