Ellie 2.0 Radio – January 31, 2021

This week I give an update on Amanda Gorman, who’s been selected to read poetry at the Super Bowl—a first! I also share about a man who was spotted $12 by a Cedar Rapids HyVee checker; that man later launched a GoFundMe to honor the checker’s generosity. So far, the GoFundMe has raised $4700+. The Big Interview is with Renee Grassi, a firecracker idealist librarian whose passion is to increase library access for persons with disabilities. Finally, in my C-Block I share about what’s happening to transgender Americans—some good, a lot not so good.
