Our latest podcast guest is William Shunn is the author of The Accidental Terrorist, a book about his time as a Mormon missionary. I’m telling you: His story is absolutely fascinating. You’ve never heard anything like it.
Bill was supposed to preach in Alberta, but it wasn’t long before he was convicted of felony mischief after making a false bomb threat.
He’s still not allowed to return to Canada.
We spoke with him about what it’s like to be a Mormon missionary when your heart’s just not into it, how the Mormon Church catches escaped missionaries, and the extreme length he went to to prevent his mission partner from leaving the base.
We’d love to hear your thoughts on the podcast. If you have any suggestions for people we should chat with, please leave them in the comments, too.
