  Elna Baker's memoir, The New York Regional Mormon Singles Halloween Dance, is about being a twenty-something Mormon virgin in a town, New York City, that doesn’t take kindly to that type. When she joined us for a conversation in 2012, Baker had evolved. She was then an ex-28-year-old virgin and ex-Mormon comedienne. Elna joins Doug to talk about leaving the church, her journey to Siberia, and the challenges of honest storytelling.
