    Sybil and Zilpha, wonderful podcast and it is great to know there will be another thought provoking podcast out there. You both give wonder expression to the woman’s perspective on the church and as a husband and father I’m very grateful to hear it and to be able to share it with the women in my life. I wish I had been able to share things like this with my daughters as they grew up in the church. Thank you to both of you for your good work. And Sybil, I loved your podcast with Juliane. She will be a great panelist for your future podcasts.

    Thank you both for this wonderful podcast.  Sybil, I am already a fan.  I’ve listened this week to Juliane’s story, and tried to catch up on the previous episodes.  Zilpha, great interview.  I love what you had to say about the need for podcasts like Daughters of Mormonism.  I plan to stay tuned.

    I’ve listened to 4 episodes of Daughters of Mormonism and it’s a great podcast.  I’m excited to see where it goes.

    Sybil, you have an AMAZING radio voice!!  Perfect for doing a podcast.  You speak very eloquently and are able to express your ideas in a clear, simple manner.

    When you were talking about the spheres, and how men have many different spheres where Mormon mothers only have one was brilliant!  You are dead on that a man can escpae into a different sphere when things in the other spheres aren’t going well, but the stay-at-home Mormon mother is trapped.  That is something I had never realized before, but it makes perfect sense when you explain it as you did.

    You would never guess in a 100 years that you are shy.  You take to podcasting like a duck to water.  Again, great job!  I’m going to head over and listen to your podcast now.

    Daughters of Mormonism is really well done podcast. Julianne’s sacrament talk was incredible.

    Absolutely fantastic podcast!  

    I’m going to be referring both men and women (especially clueless TBM men) to it to get a good overview of LdS Women’s Issues and gain empathy for their plight within the current LdS context. 

    Thank you Zilpha and Sybil for being so open, candid and direct.
