Hey Deseret! Welcome to the TJ Podcast, the unofficial podcast of Deseret Nation, part of the Radio Free Deseret Network. Every week we’ll talk about top news stories in the kingdom of God plus the happenings on the Teancums Javelin website as well as other social media platforms. We’re real. We’re unapologetic. We love our faith. And Brigham Young did nothing wrong.
EPISODE 1: BYU MADNESS
