Ellie 2.0 Radio – March 30, 2024

Our featured idealist is Siddharth Kara, the author of Cobalt Red: How the Blood of the Congo Powers Our Lives (St. Martin’s Press, 2023), a NYT bestseller, and who has journeyed to more than 50 countries to document modern day slavery and human exploitation. You won’t want to miss the clip of Siddharth talking about how those who enslave others seek to break the human spirit of their targets! The Big Interview is with Elise Boll and Sarah Hempl, two idealists working to make a rural MN county more LGBTQ+ friendly—they are so much fun to talk with! In the C-Block I share about how a talk I gave years ago helped a transgender person come out in 2024. We all ripple to others—my goal is for that rippling to be positive and affirming!
