Sound Effect, Episode 5: Failure

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

Each week's show will explore a different theme. In this week's show, we learn from failure.

Jennifer Wing tells us about the male birth control that worked behind bars — but not in bars. Playwright Rachel Atkins creates a new work of art inspired by a collective’s creative failure. We hear about the Tacoma Narrows Bridge, one of the most notorious engineering failures of all time. And we meet The Rejections, a merry band of authors who decided to play through their pain.

Our guests for this week's news roundtable are Tracy Record, Rachel Lerman and Luke Timmerman
