By Doug Fabrizio

Salt Lake City, UT –

Listen to the Show

Last weeks Polygamy Summit was historic, for the first time practicing polygamists met face to face with law-enforcement officials and anti-polygamy crusaders. The result was a meeting as colorful and complicated as Utah's own 150 year history with polygamy. Issues like freedom of religion clash with child-welfare and women's rights from the border towns of Southern Utah and Northern Arizona to the Kingston compound in Northern Utah. Guests: Nancy Perkins, Reporter for Deseret Morning News
Utah Attorney General Mark Schurtleff
Linda Kelch, child advocate for children in polygamous families
Vikki Prunty, Executive Director of Tapestry, an anti-polygamy group
