Sound Effect, Episode 13: Boundaries

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

Each week's show explores a different theme, and week, we push some boundaries.

KPLU’s Ed Ronco brings us on a journey through Africa as two frat brothers find the boundaries of their friendship tested by fatigue, malaria and a mysterious grunting creature.

Imagine Seattle without Ballard, Ravenna, West Seattle, Rainier Beach, Columbia City and South Park. MOHAI’s Lorraine McConaghy returns to Sound Effect with tales of the year Seattle gobbled up all the suburban towns it could swallow.

Say you’re visiting a whole other nation within the United States – here’s how not to act like a jerk when you get there. Jackie Jacobs talks about how the Indian Country Stylebook came to life after some in the media swarmed the Quileute Nation following the release of Twilight.

And KPLU’s Matthew Streib brings us the story of a Seattle couple that decided to blur the boundaries of their relationship and sleep with other people.

Joining us for this week’s news panel are Hanna Brooks Olsen of Seattlish, Sarah Stuteville of Seattle Globalist and Aaron Burkhalter of Real Change.

Gabriel Spitzer is a former KNKX reporter, producer and host who covered science and health and worked on the show Sound Effect.
