Sound Effect, Episode 20: Comfort Zones

A single prop plane sits in front of large snowcapped mountains in the distance.

"Sound Effect" is your weekly tour of ideas, inspired by the place we live. The show is hosted by KNKX's Gabriel Spitzer. Each week's show explores a different theme, and this week, we get into and out of our ‘Comfort Zones.’

Being naked at work would be a nightmare for many, but not for Robert Treat. Gabriel Spitzer talks to the veteran nude model about his work and the power dynamics in play when someone is nude in the room.

Sound Effect producer Kevin Kniestedt talks to a young woman with fibromyalgia about what it feels like to live most of your life in pain.

KNKX's Ashley Gross takes flight in a home-built airplane, and hears from a Seattle family that would rather be on an adventure than be too comfortable.

And Ed Ronco sits down with piano player Ruby Bishop to hear first hand how sitting behind 88 ebonies and ivories brings her a sense of comfort that nothing else provides.

Joining us for this week’s news panel are Phyllis Fletcher, JoshFeit and KyleStokes.
