I’m always interested in speaking to those in the media (print, radio/television, bloggers and podcasts) as a way of spreading my core message about human inclusivity and the need for greater compassion for others and ourselves. Media contact information: Ellen (Ellie) Krug,; phone 319.360.1692.

I have a weekly radio show, Ellie 2.0 Radio, on KTNF AM950 in the Twin Cities every Monday morning from 7-8:00 a.m. The show is about idealism and features past and present idealists as a way of inspiring others to work to change the world for the better. (As many know, I am a “hopeless idealist” who believes in individuals making a positive difference.) You can find past podcasts of Ellie 2.0 Radio here.

My various third party media interviews and appearances include (the below list is not exhaustive):

ABC TV6 Rochester MN Interview (1/28/19) re: the ban on transgender persons in the military and how marginalization affects all trans persons, particularly our trans youth and teens–they lack the perspective and grit/resiliency of adults. Click here to view.

Minnesota Public Radio Interview (3/7/17) re: legal protections for transgender school students following withdrawal of the U.S. Dept. of Education Title IX Guidance Letter. This interview was part of a 40 minute show that featured Brenda Cassellius, Commissioner, Minnesota Dept. of Education; Paul Mueller, VP of Education Minnesota (the state’s teacher union); and Andrea Jenkins, a transgender activist. My part of the show begins at minute 17:42 and continues to conclusion. Click here to listen.
