Episode 38: Meet Margaret Young

Join Lisa as she interviews BYU professor Margaret Young about her life and marriages, her work as a writer and filmmaker and her latest project the Heart of Africa movie.


Margaret Young has written lots of books, essays, scholarly articles, and has made a few films. She would mostly like to be known as a mom who goes to 12-step with her son. (She attends “family support”.) She has held her daughter for hours during that daughter’s panic attacks. She is well-acquainted with eating disorders. She has been divorced and knows what it’s like to be a single mom. She has the honor of being her dad’s chief foot rubber and is grateful for the bonus time provided by dialysis. She is not as beautiful as her mother, but is okay with that. One of her sons is a better writer than she is, and her oldest daughter will possibly become the best singer in the United States. That daughter is also a domestic marvel, something Margaret always intended to be but never managed. Margaret and her husband, Bruce, have been happily married for twenty-six years, though they were married twenty-seven years ago. The first year was pretty bad. She wants people to view the splash page of her current project at www.heartofafricafilm.com
Get ready to support Margaret’s latest project, the Heart of Africa movie.

  1. There are two constant problems with downloading the FMH podcasts from Itunes:

    1)The downloads constantly stop and you have to hit resume multiple times.

    2)When the podcast episode finally downloads there are multiple sections during the episode that repeat themselves.

    1. If you’ve been having trouble with iTunes as your access to the episodes, please unsubscribe to the podcast and then go to the iTunes store (a link from the fmh podcast website can take you there, too) and re-subscribe to fmh podcast. Hopefully that will reset things with the new iTunes updates and you shouldn’t have further problems. Keep us posted!

  2. iTunes is a media player and media library application developed by Apple Inc. It is used to play, download, and organize digital audio and video on personal computers running the OS X operating system and the iOS-based iPod, iPhone, and iPad devices, with editions also released for Microsoft Windows.-,..:
