2006 Conference Multimedia
On Friday, October 13, 2006, the Exmormon Foundation annual conference commenced. The Foundation is "dedicated to supporting those in transition from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints"; we provide these recordings free-of-charge for download in order to support that mission.
The opinions of all speakers are their own, and do not necessarily represent the official position of The Exmormon Foundation or its representatives. We provide the forum; the speakers provide the content.

Bryan Johnson of Bacchus Bartending: "The Art of Fixing and Mixing"
(Not recorded; we could only record two breakouts at the same time. And besides, a class on how to mix drinks? That's a hands-on activity!)
The Exmormon Foundation Business Meeting was not recorded.

Note: At about nine minutes into Brent's presentation, we began receiving significant interference on our FM radio gear. Unfortunately, this tainted the source recording, and there's just no effective way to remove it. It sounds like a commercial of some sort. It goes away a minute and a half later.
Panel: "The Road Less Travelled", with Jarom Smith, Dennis Farley, Sandy Crain-Gilkeson and Tracy Bachman.
