Today's guest is here to share how her struggle with unbearable insomnia led to an accidental descent into prescription benzodiazepine dependence. Melissa Bond is a narrative journalist and poet. In the years of her dependence on benzodiazepines, Melissa blogged and became a regular contributor for Mad in America. ABC World News Tonight interviewed her for a piece in January 2014. Melissa is a respected writer on the perils of over-prescribing benzodiazepines and has been featured on PBS Story in the Public Square, Radio West, the podcasts Risk!, IGNTD, and Psychology Unplugged. The Salt Lake Tribune and the New York Post have both done features on her book Blood Orange Night, her memoir about becoming dependent upon and then withdrawing from benzodiazepines. In this episode, we talk about... - Melissa's descent into prescription benzodiazepine dependence - What her insomnia looked like - How she knew her symptoms were more than momma exhaustion - What her withdrawal from benzodiazepines looked like - How her struggle impacted her marriage - What her mental health looks like today - Why you should never cold turkey your psych meds - What literature says about benzodiazepines - Why everyone needs to read Anatomy of an Epidemic - Why you need to know what stopping benzodiazepines can look like If you loved this episode, please share it with a friend.

Growth, land use, and the good old fashioned “way of life” question are all at stake in Utah's wild horse debacle — which host (and horse girl) Ali Vallarta and Salt Lake Tribune reporter Brian Maffly try to unravel.

My friends Joni and Phil Broderick (parents of four) and their gay son Kyle (recent BYU graduate) join us from their home in Virginia to share their story. Kyle talks about his journey to address and resolve being gay and LDS which reached a crossroads on his mission in Africa where he decided to end his mission and return home. Kyle's parents learned—in a jolting message—that their son was gay and coming home from his mission. Kyle talks about his experiences at BYU (some good and some difficult) and deciding to step away from the Church. Joni and Phil talk about being on the receiving side of Kyle's message and how they navigated this new reality. They talk about their path to learn how to support Kyle and address their fears—which included reading books, listening to podcasts, and prayer. Joni talks about coming to Utah to attend a NorthStar conference and learning as she arrived in Utah that Kyle was participating in a rally at BYU regarding the honor code changes. Joni talks about her decision to make signs and then attend that rally with Kyle which was covered by the Salt Lake Tribune (link in the show notes). This was a deeply spiritual experience for her. Joni and Phil talk about their personal revelation for their family and what we can do as a church to better support LGBTQ families. This is a powerful and moving podcast. If you are parents (with or without a queer child) please listen to this podcast. If you are a local leader, please listen to this podcast. It will help you be better parents and/or local leaders. And if you are a LGBTQ Latter-day Saint, I believe this will help you. Thank you, Joni, Phil and Kyle, for sharing your story. It is a beautiful family love story that will help so many!

Collis is the author of the nonfiction books The Immortals and Deep Conviction and the novels Praying with the Enemy and At Any Cost. He is a law professor at the University of Texas-Austin School of Law and founding faculty director of UT's Bech-Loughlin First Amendment Center and related Law & Religion Clinic.

We discuss the following key points found in the harrowing and inspiring tale of Jae Pil and Ward Millar's escape from prison camps in Korea: finding ways to connect and relate to others around us despite our differences how stressful circumstances can either test our faith or inspire us to place a priority on our spirituality the importance of cultivating deep roots to ground our beliefs rather than allow circumstances to dictate our spiritual values how respecting others and building bridges of communication does not require us to compromise our own beliefs demonstrating resilience in our faith discerning between political affiliations and spiritual beliefs so the culture does not influence shifts in theology key tenets of religious freedom how to fulfill divine purpose as a sophisticated believer dangers of adopting an "us v.s. them" mentality and how to overcome this mindset trap benefits of taking time to listen to the needs and concerns of those with opposing views parallels between the Good Samaritan parable and choices made by Jae Pil and Ward Millar to help one another escape Collis relates the transformation of a non-believing American soldier who becomes a man of unshakable faith. We discuss the story's earning experiences applicable to our modern lives. Collis points out the principle of losing one's self to find true identity and purpose in Christ as demonstrated in the novel. We explore the universal tendency to question God during crisis and how we often cannot recognize his actions on our behalf at the time of struggle.

In the days and weeks after the reported discovery of the first known photograph of Joseph Smith, a debate erupted: Is this really him? Here's why it could be; here's why it couldn't be. Underneath all the chatter lurked some fundamental questions: What do we know about what the Mormon founder looked like? Why does it matter? Will we ever know if this tiny locket image shows one of America's most influential religious leaders? Historian Benjamin Park, an associate professor at Sam Houston State University, explored those topics and more in a recent piece for The Salt Lake Tribune. Park, who also is writing a history of Mormonism, discusses the big questions surrounding this small photo.
For three years in the 1920s, the women of northwest Philadelphia were terrorized by a madman who entered homes and attacked or even killed whoever was within. Were these killings work of serial killer Earle Leonard Nelson?

The community of Short Creek lies along the Utah/Arizona border in the town of Colorado City. The area is surrounded by massive red rock formations on one side, and desert on the other side. The town is divided by a road called “U-zona” with Utah on one side of the road, and Arizona on the other. While this may seem like a simple, quirky little feature at first, this location was chosen strategically, so that the residents could flee from one state to another in order to evade the government. This community is home to many FLDS community members, and this town is the setting in which Warren Jeffs started to gain total control over his followers.

Today on the show, producer Emily Means talks with Salt Lake Tribune sports reporter Alex Vejar about what it would take for Utah fans to change for the better.

Last week, President Joe Biden announced a new student loan forgiveness plan, canceling up to $20,000 of student debt per borrower. Sen. Mitt Romney tweeted that it's just a way to “bribe the voters” and is unfair to those who paid their own way. Others don't think the plan goes far enough to help those struggling under the weight of their loans. Still, more than 100,000 Utahns may be eligible for this relief, according to The Salt Lake Tribune. One of them is Rachel Adams, a first-generation college student who graduated in 2017. Producer Emily Means talks with Rachel about her experience figuring out how to pay for college, her take on this new program, and if, all things considered, taking out a loan was worth it.

On June 24th, 2000, a 15-year-old aspiring writer vanished from her home in Utah, and her mom turned to her daughter's own stories for clues. Having been a victim of bullying, police initially believed that she ran away. But as witnesses came forward, she appeared to have a stalker who had lured her from her home on the very computer where she sat every night to write. This is the murder of Trisha Autry.
