Polygamy and Its Discontents
Today's episode of the I'm Just Sayin Show: Polygamy and The Girls Next Door. It's probably my favorite so far -- Alisa, who is a practicing Mormon, tells her story about living next to a polygamist compound. This personal anecdote sits next to a discussion of The Girls Next Door, a clearly polygamist situation that no one has ever legally questioned. Toward the end, Alisa discusses the codes for strict religious sects, but then Jackie mentions how those codes seem similar to the lives of playmates. What I love about this episode is that it mixes narrative and criticism, personal and political.
