Kristen & Jolenta are joined by storyteller, comedian, and This American Life producer Elna Baker for their live show in Brooklyn. The ladies chat with Elna about why she read 75 self-help books in 3 years, why losing weight wasn’t the transformation she was expecting it to be, and what her first sexual experiments were like after leaving Mormonism.
