Desperately Seeking Conservative LDS Panelist(s)

July 14, 2007

While we’ve had some wonderfully bright and articulate conservative or traditional LDS panelists so far here on Mormon Matters (John Fowles, Rosalynde Welch, Julianne Hatton) various somewhat random complexities have made it such that they are finding it hard to appear with regularity.

Consequently, Mormon Matters is seeking 1 or 2 additional somewhat conservative or traditionalist LDS panelists to appear weekly on the podcast. Criteria include:

  • You must consider yourself as a somewhat conservative or traditional LDS member (at least theologically)
  • You must be somewhat thoughtful, witty and/or articulate (based on feedback from family or friends). :)
  • You must be able to appear on the show at least twice per month
  • We usually record Saturday nights between 8 and 10 Utah time

If any of you are interested, please contact us at:


  • Courtney

    Look no further.

    I am witty and conservative (or is it conservative than witty?)

    I blog for Segullah regularly as well as my own blog which has a severe and loyal following. I am thirty, married, live in Provo and have not as yet accomplished having children (still working on it.)

    I would love to be considered!


  • Darlene

    Can I just put in a word for Courtney? You wouldn’t believe the huge following her blog has. And she’s just as great in person.

  • Heather B.

    My 2cent’s for Courtney as well- I adore reading her blog, and she is so fun and smart and wonderful. I’d love to get to listen to her voice as well as reading her words.’s lucky to have her on staff!

    I’m sold! Courtney…you’re in!!!!!

    I’ll add you soon to our discussion group.

    Thanks to you all for the feedback!!!

  • Andy Salazar

    I dont blog.

    But I think I still count as a person who has an opinion is can add to the discussion….maybe when Courtney is busy with the kids??



    PS: wit is hard to translate over the internet.

  • Equality

    Can I apply? The RfMers and fundies both think I am too conservative. Although the John Bircher in the ward thinks I am a pinko commy simp. :-)

  • Jamie Trwth

    I always seem to wonder why no one laughs at your jokes. The other thing I wonder is . . . . what do you consider Conservative LDS Panelist(s)?

  • John Dehlin

    Because I’m not funny? :)
