Sound Effect, Episode 3: Rain

"Sound Effect" is a weekly tour of ideas, inspired by the place where we live. The show is hosted by KPLU's Gabriel Spitzer.

Each week's show will explore a different theme. In this week's show, we dive into the rain.

We take a trip to the Hoh Rain Forest and learn about the riches of the rainiest part of the lower 48. Two young boys revel in mud. We hear from our region's favorite weatherman, Cliff Mass and his undying enthusiasm for storms. A local magician makes street art that only can be seen in the rain. And a song writer in a tropical paradise tells us why she was jealous of the Seattle Rain. 

Nina Shapiro, Peter Robison and Berit Anderson join us for the weekly news round table.
