Who Wrote D&C 132?

Part 3 of an interview between Ryan Hinckley (host of the “Mormon Theories” podcast) and Mark Curtis (Hemlock Knots), exploring the origins of the alleged July 12, 1843 revelation known today as D&C 132. Was it from Joseph Smith? Who wrote it? Where was it kept and why wasn’t it shared with the saints for 9 years? What doctrines did it change? Does it match the writing style, tone, syntax and communication style of Joseph Smith or the voice used in former revelations?
