Can't Let Go: Sound Effect, Episode 125

Flat Earth map drawn by Orlando Ferguson in 1893. The map contains several references to biblical passages as well as various jabs at the "Globe Theory".

This week on Sound Effect, our theme is "Can’t Let Go." KNKX newsies Ariel Van Cleave and Ed Ronco reminisce about their obscure instruments. Then we talk to Jillian Venters, who gives advice to people of the gothic subculture, including those who are aging within it. Next, we head to Tacoma where a man is making an effort to celebrate author Frank Herbert. Then we take a ride in one of the oddest vehicles you’ll ever see: a hearse, decked out in pink, and available for parties. We get out of the hearse and back into the studio to talk to a man about why he’s convinced the earth is flat. The show wraps up with us meeting a woman who made a trek into the woods to say goodbye one last time to her dog…but couldn’t completely let go.
