Exclamation Mormons: picture of urim and thummim

I really enjoy your podcast. One small correction on the picture you posted of the urim and thummim on your web page. What you have pictured are the "Kinderhook Plates" -- a whole 'nother mormon story. The urim and thummum were like a set of spectacles. In truth, however, Joseph Smith "translated" the Book of Mormon by putting a peepstone in a hat and putting his face in the hat.

Keep up the good work.

Clearly it is important that such critical details be correct, as they no doubt have a great bearing on the truth of the matter. I have removed the Urim & Thummim reference.
