Augustin will go behind the scenes of the podcast, adding new details and insights to Manuel Ellis’ story and previewing the final episodes.

About The Walk Home podcast

KNKX’s Special Projects team and The Seattle Times investigative team have created The Walk Home, a multi-part podcast chronicling the life and death of Manuel Ellis — and the revelations that came to light afterward.

The Walk Home unfolds across eight episodes, marshalling The Seattle Times’ investigative heft and KNKX’s storytelling prowess. The podcast gives a national audience a close-up, emotional, fresh, and insightful view of policing, race, and poverty in America — ahead of what promises to be one of the highest-profile trials in Pacific Northwest history.

From the team that brought you Outsiders, The Walk Home podcast stands out from other audio documentaries on police violence by exploring not only the actions of individual officers over a few minutes, but also decades of macro forces that contributed to Ellis dying on a darkened residential street.
