Deseret Alphabet (𐐔𐐯𐑅𐐨𐑉𐐯𐐻 𐐈𐑊𐑁𐐰𐐺𐐯𐐻) Ep. 599 The Cultural Hall

The Deseret alphabet was a project of the Mormon pioneers, a group of early followers of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints which set about building a new society in the Utah desert after the death of the church’s founder, Joseph Smith. Neal Davis teaches computer science at the University of Illinois. Trained as a nuclear engineer, he moved through high-performance computing into training engineers to use computers well. He was raised in Arkansas.. Ryan K. Shosted is Professor of Linguistics at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. He was born in Salt Lake City. He studied Czech, wore out two pairs of black Doc Martens in the Brazilian Serra Geral, and subsequently graduated from BYU. He spent a Fulbright year in Mozambique before earning a PhD at UC Berkeley. Ryan hopes his research and teaching helps people appreciate the mysteries of the spoken and written word. He may be observed carrying with him swarms of bees.

The Spiritual Physics of Light/Aaron Franklin Ep. 596 The Cultural Hall

Aaron D. Franklin is fascinated by light, both physically and spiritually. Is the physical light we see and use actually related to the spiritual light of the gospel, such as the Light of Christ? Can we apply what we know scientifically about light to the doctrine of light in the gospel? In his book, The Spiritual Physics of Light, Aaron explores these questions in a way that is accessible to any interested reader, regardless of their scientific background (or lack thereof). In addition to his foray with writing books about light, Aaron is a professor of electrical and computer engineering and chemistry at Duke University. A native of Phoenix, Arizona, he earned a bachelor’s degree from Arizona State University and a doctorate from Purdue University, both in electrical engineering. Prior to becoming a professor, Franklin worked at IBM as a research scientist studying nanotechnology. He and his wife, Lianne Walters Franklin, are the parents of three children and reside in Cary, North Carolina.

Funnel Hacker Russell Brunson Ep. 595 The Cultural Hall

Over the past 19 years, Russell has built a following of over a million entrepreneurs, sold hundreds of thousands of copies of his books (making him a New York Times Bestselling Author), popularized the concept of sales funnels, and co-founded the software company called ClickFunnels that helps tens of thousands of entrepreneurs quickly get their message out to the marketplace. Russell Brunson has been collecting junk mail since the age of 12. He’d watch TV or listen to the radio, waiting for the commercials because to him, marketing and sales were the real entertainment. Despite his young age, Russell opted in to every business opportunity offer he could find, simply to study the art and science of direct response. In high school Russell was a state champion wrestler, and then became All-American his senior year taking 2nd place in the country at high school nationals. He continued to wrestle in college, learning valuable lessons about competition, hard work, and the art of winning. He graduated as one of the top ten wrestlers nationally. He’d watch TV or listen to the radio, waiting for the commercials because to him, marketing and sales were the real entertainment.

Robert Hatch Ep. 593 The Cultural Hall

The Producer/Director, Robert Hatch, has won nearly three hundred film festival awards– which is more than any other LDS filmmaker–has directed seven films for the BBC, produced a television series, produced 56 television programs for the Church, has a series airing nationally right now, and much more. He considers The Infinite Gift his most important work, however, because it tackles the most essential topic an artist can cover; the atonement.
