From On Being, an inside perspective of the Mormon universe with journalist Joanna Brooks. She helps us understand the emergence of a viable Mormon presidential candidate as a time of self-searching. She sheds an informative light from an unorthodox perspective on what some are calling this "Mormon moment" in American life: on Broadway, on TV, and in presidential politics. Brooks is a scholar who blogs at Religion Dispatches and Ask Mormon Girl, an online community of questioning for Mormons of many stripes. One of the most prominent recurring themes on the blog is what Brooks calls "faith transitions" -- people young and old asking new questions and growing in new directions, often while remaining faithful to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
