Jacob Kittilstad spoke with the mother of Cameron Langrell – a freshman at Horlick High School who committed suicide in 2015 after coming out as transgender. Jamie Olender says Cameron had struggled with depression and had recently confided in her that he wanted to transition. Jamie also says that Cameron was bullied for “acting feminine” and she believes this contributed to the suicide. The discussion also referenced the recent proposal by the Trump administration to change the legal definition of gender – which Jamie opposes.

Next, Rabbi Martyn Adelberg talked to Jacob about the rise of anti-Semitic violence and rhetoric nationwide. Rabbi Adelberg reflected on the support Racine’s Beth Israel Sinai Congregation has received from the community since the mass shooting at Pittsburgh’s Tree of Life Synagogue. He also spoke about the role he feels social media plays in motivating the hate speech and violence. Click here to learn more about the congregation

In its twelfth year, Blank-Fest Wisconsin is returning to McAuliffe’s Pub to collect donated items for people who are homeless in the Racine-area. Instead of selling tickets, organizers ask that event-goers bring items like blankets and toiletries (and that donation will act as their tickets in). The two-day festival will feature one day of folk-related music and another day of rock-adjacent acts. HALO Inc. also joined the interview to talk about the impact of these donations during this time of year. Click here to learn more about the details for Blank-Fest Wisconsin XII

One of the musicians participating in Blank-Fest Wisconsin XII is Josh Krug who was raised in Racine. Krug typically performs with his band Josh Krug & Friends which includes his father as the drummer. In a scaled-back performance Josh show viewers what he’s capable of with an in-house rendition of his song “A-Ok!” Click here to follow Josh Krug

Guests: Jamie Olender – Mother of Cameron Langrell, Rabbi Martyn Adelberg – Beth Israel Sinai Congregation, Ron Purtee – Blank-Fest Wisconsin XII Organizer, JJ McAuliffe – Blank-Fest Wisconsin XII Organizer, Josh Krug – Josh Krug & Friends
