This week on Sound Effect, stories of the people we once were. 

Getting In Touch With Your Old Self

Ken Workman is 64 years old, and only ten years ago he found out that he was a descendent of Chief Sealth. He is making up for lost time by immersing himself in the culture and learning the language of his ancestors.

An Exhibit Of Unintended Consequences

Sometimes our good intentions in the past can have unintended consequences generations later. That’s the idea behind a new exhibit at the Renton History Museum. It’s all about the Renton High School mascot: the Indians.

Giving Your Old Self A Listen

Dick Rosetti was a rock DJ in the '90s and 2000s, and he kept just about every hour of audio from when he was on the air. Now, Dick and those hours of old recordings are the subject of a documentary by Tacoma filmmaker, and Dick’s friend, Isaac Olsen.

An Unexpected Year Of Hoops

Lane Czaplinski didn’t see himself playing basketball for a powerhouse college team. But his senior year at the University of Kansas, that’s exactly what happened, and with some unexpected twists that created a path to his future — in the arts.

From Hunting The Undocumented to Providing A Safe Place

Father Antonio Illas is the pastor for Saint Matthew-San Mateo Episcopal Church in Auburn. The church is a sanctuary church where people who are undocumented can live for a while. But years ago, Father Illas was the one trying to find the undocumentedand build a case against them.

Crawling To Achieve

Mike Long was not a good student in grade school. And after several attempts to try and correct the problem, his parents found a doctor who felt that in order for Mike to be a better student, he needed to get on all fours and crawl around the house.
