Listen to Audio 

On episode 37 of The Winding Stairs Freemasonry Podcast, we discuss One Day Conferrals or One Day Classes (ODCs). Are they as bad as Brothers make them out to be? What effect do they have on membership retention and participation? I speak with Brothers Chris Hodapp, author of Freemasons for Dummies, and Jon Ruark, co-host of The Masonic Roundtable.
