NPR's Talk of the Nation airs show about the Big Love controversy

My brother, Daniel Stout, was a guest on Talk of the Nation today on NPR. They were discussing the recent episode of Big Love that has been so controversial. It was a great segment and I thought Dan did an excellent job!! I'm so proud of him! If you get a chance then take a few minutes and check it out:

I don't watch because we don't have cable, but I have several friends who do. One likes it a lot and has said the show is fairly accurate in portraying how they interact with the Church(don't go to the local ward because they're breaking the rules, etc). She was upset with how they basically threw reality to the wind to get the lady into the temple and saddened/sickened at what they showed. Not life changing for me or anything(again, didn't see it), but definitely interesting to see how much interest it drummed up to find out what the temple is really about.
I have to admit that all the people I know who joined those boycott groups and stuff lost a bit of their shine in my eyes. I mean, HBO loves the controversy and they're just feeding into it. And the Church issued a statement about it. Seriously, if you're not going to listen to the Presidency then why should we listen to you?
Uh, that was much longer than I'd intended.....rant over...
