Ellie 2.0 Radio – December 17, 2018

The idealist for this week is Daniel Ellsberg, who in 1971 leaked the infamous Pentagon Papers as a way of changing the conversation about the Vietnam War, highlighting the government’s failure to be honest with Americans; in the Big Interview, I talk with David Liners, a priest-turned-nonprofit founder, who oversees WISDOM in Wisconsin—a collection of religious organizations working for social change. In Block C, I talk about how the war shaped me and how I learned that my words could touch people, courtesy of my 10th grade English teacher.
