Sound Effect, Episode 4: Myths And Legends

"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 Northwest myths and legends.

We explore the myths of some of our region's first peoples. We also hear about the ever-present myth of underground tunnels and what the evolution of those urban legends explains about our not-so-distant past.

We take a look at a lesser-known aspect of the gruesome — and unfortunately true — story of the Green River Killer. We also meet a scientist using drones to search for Sasquatch.

Our guests for this week's news round table are Jessica Partnow, Justin Carder and Benjamin Romano.
