Wow, I can’t believe Church News Podcast published our 100th episode today!! It has been an honor launching and working as producer on this show. We celebrated today with amazing guests and guest host.

Elder Rasband and Sheri Dew joined us in the studio, and Elder Palmer joined us by phone to discuss the growing Church in Africa.

This was especially helpful for me, as I have been struggling with grief and heartache. Knowing that I get to be a part of such a great project really helped lift my spirit and faith.

You can listen to the podcast now at TheChurchNews.com.

The Letter: A different kind of true-crime podcast.

I’ve been great to take a small part in bringing this amazing story to the public.

In it, I gave one of the hardest performances of my life! Yvette Rodier is a victim the has chosen to not define her life by that label. As such, I was chosen to re-enact the testimony of her attack. I am honored to help share this story.

About the podcast:

A random act of violence rocks a community. Decades later, a letter changes everything. “The Letter” from KSL Podcasts is out now at http://theletterpodcast.com.

Full description: In August of 1996, longtime friends on the verge of adulthood – Zachary Snarr and Yvette Rodier – headed into the mountains a few miles from their Salt Lake City homes, where they planned to spend the evening taking pictures of the rising full moon. But a 19-year-old stranger carrying a gun happened across them, changing dozens of lives with one fateful decision. The crime sent shockwaves through the community that continued to reverberate long after the media turned its attention to other tragedies. But no one expected what came next — The Letter.  From KSL Podcasts (Cold), Lemonada Media (Believe Her) and Work House Media.

Due to the pandemic, Halvorsen has switched focus on her career and is no longer taking massage clients.
