Hidden Edges Radio with Ellen Krug

Sundays 1PM - 2PM

Let’s face it: humans are complicated.

We can be warm and embracing to those we know and like—often, these are people who look and think like “us.”

Or, we can be cold and distant—even hostile—to people who are “different.” Usually, we have no real idea about who “those people” really are.

As a backdrop, we lack a “Human Owner’s Manual” which otherwise might help us make it past our biases and fears.

The Human Condition is filled with many hidden edges—some sharp, others dull—which often prevent us from living authentically or connecting with others. Sometimes, those edges are revealed in dramatic fashion via loss or inequity or an unexpected moment of truth. How can we navigate life’s hidden edges and find greater acceptance of others and ourselves?

With grit, resiliency and hope, it’s actually possible to transform hidden edges into jumping off points for greater inclusivity and authenticity.

Hidden Edges Radio, (H.E.R.) hosted by national speaker and inclusivity trainer Ellen (Ellie) Krug, takes on the Human Condition and our internal limitations. The show explores how we’re all hard-wired for certain things, like bias and empathy, and the ways in which we draw lines between “us” and “them” and even within ourselves.

In short, H.E.R. offers listeners answers. Through Ellie’s thoughtful commentary and stories shared by special guests, listeners will find greater meaning for their own lives and appreciate that no one is alone in surviving the Human Condition. Even more, in this polarized social justice and political climate, Ellie works to be a unifier; she’s trying to get everyone on the same page as simply “us.”

As a transgender woman who transitioned genders later in life, H.E.R. host Ellie Krug knows about sharp edges. She’s also learned that some things in life—like one’s gender—can’t be “chosen.” With that enlightenment came authenticity and perspective and a desire to lead on how to be more accepting of ourselves and others across the spectrum of race, religion, gender, disability status or LGBTQ status.

Hidden Edges Radio. Challenging, passionate, and perspective-changing. Now on AM950, the Progressive Voice of Minnesota.
