Ellie 2.0 Radio – March 12, 2022

Our featured idealist is Supreme Court nominee Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson—her work to this point in her life points to a real idealist. The Big Interview is with Dean Holt, a Children’s Theater Company actor who appears in Something Happened in Our Town, a wonderful, thought-provoking play adapted from the children’s book with the same title. Dean and I talk about how the play tackles racial prejudice and stereotypes, and how it offers parents that chance to talk to their kids about how we humans group and label each other. In my C-Block, I talk about speaking with LGBTQ middle schoolers in Hastings.
