    Very interesting stuff. I think the goals sound excellent and I’m particularly interested in your efforts to make Mormon literature available more widely. 

    Love the transparency, it’s really good to hear the thought processes and to know how much work and consideration go into the decisions that are made.

    Dangit!!!! I wanted to be the first to comment!!!  Oh well.  I just wanted to say that I am indeed going to be deducting a dollar from my donations after listening to this episode.  I mean pandering at its worst!!!   Ok, the truth is I’ve been listening for a while, and I’ve donated to some of the other sites, and I’m going to start “spreading the love” among them all (Mostos, Momatts, and now Moexp).  You guys really do an amazing job.  I appreciate the Humor, the intellect, the content, the doctrine, the analysis, thoughts, and most of all Zilpha’s giggles!!  Thanks for the update on things and the vision of where it’s all going.  I believe the entire movement is bigger than anyone realizes.  Looking forward!!!!

    I just wanted to say that I completely agree with and support John & Zilpha’s vision for Voices.  So far the podcast has consisted of just interviews because we’re just getting it off the ground.  But I’m really looking forward to helping other people publish their conversations and interviews with loved ones / friends / etc.  So please don’t hesitate to contact me with your ideas.  Don’t worry about recording capabilities or those technical things.  I can take care of all of that.  All we need are your…. drumroll please…. voices.  (Bad pun.  Sorry.)

    Thanks guys for letting me know about all the exiting projects you have going on.  I have been hesitating to donate for a long time because after leaving the church I feel weird donating to any organization … but John’s request for a measly 3 bucks a month seemed more than reasonable for all the entertainment I get from the podcast.  I encourage others to do the same!

    I would love to help with ME projects. I have a working knowledge of Java, but I am not a professional developer. I think the recording project will be amazing, but I have a very unattractive voice. I think it would be fascinating to research church history stuff, but I don’t live in Utah and my background is aerospace engineering.

    I can bake some really mean chocolate chip cookies, and I could spend the rest of my life watching Star Trek (the Next Generation only, please). I wish these were marketable skills. Let me know how I can help!

    Anyway, I’m kinda disappointed in the name y’all came up with. I was hoping for something more along the lines of “Dewey, Cheatem & Howe” like Tom and Ray use for their “Car Talk” radio show. Alas, I understand your rationale.

    I’m glad y’all are sharing all this with your listeners. One of the best things I like about ME is how consistent and high quality your work is. Keep it up!

    Thank you for this.  It is great to hear the plans.  Also thank you for all the work everyone has put in to this.  I am one of those that listen every day for a voice of sanity in my life. Not that I agree with everyone’s opinions, but that is not the point.  I have stepped out of my cloture and those around me now are very understanding and kind but they don’t really know.  When I speak to those within my culture I feel so psycho.  You all feel like friends when I hear you that have come from where I have come and you actually use your minds when it come to Mormonism which I to think is a very interesting topic.  Thank you Zilpha, John, and the many others that have worked so hard and become my family even though you do not know who I you all are important in my life.` `

    I appreciated this podcast. I have to say I was a bit shocked when John revealed in a former podcast that ME was owned by a corporation. I’m happy this ‘evil’ corporation was really the Larsens and not some puppet-masters.

    Thanks for the info.
