In October 2018, Bishop Dean M. Davies said, “In recent months, I have listened to every general conference address which President Nelson has given since he was first called as an Apostle. This exercise has changed my life.”
I’ve decided I want to do this — listen to every talk from President Nelson since he was called as an apostle.
If you want to follow along, here’s a podcast I created which will publish one talk per day from President Nelson starting today. It begins in April 1984, with President Nelson giving his first talk as an apostle, and includes talks from General Conference, BYU and BYU-Idaho devotionals, CES Firesides, Christmas devotionals, and others.
There are options below to listen to one, two, or three talks per day. If you listen to three per day, you’ll finish all 116 talks in time for the October General Conference, just six weeks away.
One Talk Per Day
Two Talks Per Day
Three Talks Per Day
I compiled these talks from churchofjesuschrist.org, byu.edu, byui.edu, and a few others from Ben Crowder’s excellent list.

October 1 Update
If you’ve been listening to three per day, today was the last day. This included a 117th talk given by President Nelson just two weeks ago.
If you liked something you heard and can’t remember which talk it was in, here is a Google custom search engine which searches all of President Nelson’s talks:
