Ellie 2.0 Radio – May 13, 2019

This show’s a real mixture; in the A-Block, I talk about the White Rose, a group of idealistic German university students (and a professor) who resist the Nazi regime in 1942-43 by spreading pamphlets calling for Germans to resist the war and Nazism. Some of those idealists paid the ultimate price as a result. The Big Interview is with Chris Farrell of MPR and author of Purpose and a Paycheck: Finding Meaning, Money and Happiness in the Second Half of Life. Chis is an idealist who believes in the value of all humans regardless of age. Finally, in my C-Block, I spoke about how current administration policies toward transgender people are reminiscent of Nazi policies and my fear that if 2020 goes badly, America would no longer be recognizable.
