Ellie 2.0 Radio – May 13, 2023

Our featured idealist is Pussy Riot, the Russian music/performance group that
is a big thorn in Vladimir Putin’s side. The Big Interview has me speaking to Bethany O’Neil and
Cresston Gackle, attorneys who wrote about how MN’s system of selecting juries, which often
fails to reflect the diversity of the community, perpetuates bias against criminal defendants of
color. In my C-Block, I share about a Chaska MN children’s boutique that plans to have a drag
story hour for its patrons—the plan has elicited the expected backlash given what’s happening
around drag across the country.
