The latest podcast from RadioWest (which is actually a rebroadcast of a previous show) features an interview with Elna Baker, author of The New York Regional Mormon Singles Halloween Dance. I haven’t read the book (yet), but in the show, she talks about growing up Mormon and the difficulties that came with questioning a faith that made up much of her identity for so many years. Baker shares a story that’s honest and poignant, and shows deep respect for her former religion, seldom an easy task for anyone who’s left their faith behind.

*I spend a lot of time listening to podcasts. Because I love to learn. Because it’s a medium unlike any other. And, mostly, because there are so many good stories being told through audio. Worth a Listen is my way of sharing things I’ve found that struck me as particularly thoughtful, or funny, or moving, or just…worth a listen. If you’ve heard something recently that’s sticking with you, please share!*
